    Speaking of watered down projects, the Mission transit lanes were APPROVED by the board all the way to Randall, yet end at 30th St.

    So not only are proposals like the Stockton Street dropped without ANY public process. Not only are the Mission St transit lanes in Excelsior being silently dropped despite years of public process in the TEP. But, APPROVAL of transit lanes is being ignored/overturned silently, despite available funding.

    What’s the point of all this public process if a single stakeholders can make the decision in a backroom?

    We think all this process is to make sure we are democratic, but it’s just a charade.
