42 Days and Counting: That Challenge to Muni Management and More!
It's been 42 days now since that post and predictably, there is silence from Muni. Big surprise, I know. If you tried to take a Muni Metro train during say, Pride Sunday, you KNOW what a mess it was. That+Giants Game+Usual Sunday Fun = no one getting around anywhere fast.
So again, for fun, I shall updated these at random and see how we go. We know the Mayor can't really rely on Muni, since it doesn't go out of town to all those places he's campaigning for Lt. Governor, and it's not like he would know how to pay for a bus fare or anything since Muni is not on Planet Gavin. As for the Board....well...let's not go there.
I'm adding a new countdown as well...the number of days it takes to find out when the new bus shelters on Irving will be installed and the story behind what looks like two new parking spaces where the N stop at 9th and Irving is. I've emailed folks as of June 23rd and have yet to hear back. I made the mistake of trying 311 on Twitter, where the response first was "call 311" and then "we don't know." So why tell me to call 311? Seems kind of silly, yes?Anyway to illustrate my question re: parking, here's a photo of said spots. Notice how while they would do a nice job of blocking speeding cars who think Irving is a 4 lane highway and seem to be eager to run down pedestrians, said spots would also be blocking people getting on the N at the stop too. And there are no meters. So are they "real" legal parking spots or what?
