    Uber and Lyft to Blame for Worsening Traffic

    Good thing SF has responded to this situation by:
    – Effectively instituting a 9% cut in transit service (because there aren’t enough operators on the job)
    – Shut down a major transit artery for months
    – Taking all the scooters off the street
    – Continuing to block bikeshare expansion
    – Having a handful of docked e-bikes for the whole city
    – Limiting dockless e-bikes to 250
    – Leaving in place dangerous and deadly bike lanes
    – Not taking action to create loading zones and stop double parking
    – Having almost no traffic enforcement police on duty

    We’re actively manufacturing the conditions under which heavy Uber and Lyft traffic is inevitable.

  • Cars, bikes, peds and transit need to share the roadways. The problem with SF and the Bay Area is exactly what you described above. However, officials are quick to deflect and blame ride sharing services for the problems they refuse to solve. The Bay Area continues its downward spiral.
