The Mystery of Our SFMTA’s “THIS VEHICLE AUTHORIZED TO ENTER BIKE LANE WHEN NECESSARY” Bumper Stickers

TweetHere’s the bumper sticker: And here’s the TaxiMemoFinal from our ineffectual SFMTA: QUESTIONS: Boy, this memo sure is hard to find. Any reason for that?

Oh, I Guess the Hated / Beloved Pedestrian Bridge over Geary at Webster is Going to Stay After All? – Geary BRT Update

So all these meetings were a big success, or a huge failure for the SFCTA, depending on how you look […]

TweetFor a few days anyway, you’d see just a pair of white safe hit posts from the SFMTA here at the foot of Golden Gate near Market. But then along comes the unofficial SFMTrA to put the unofficial orange cones, which instigated the SFMTA into putting in the white posts, back up. So this is […]

Why Do So Many ZIPCAR Rental Cars have Out-of-State License Plates?

TweetMy first impulse, upon seeing this rental car in my ‘hood, was to exclaim: ‘Sup Arizona? How you likin’ the rain, girl? My second impulse was to ask, again, “What’s up with all the ‘Zona plates, Avis?” Is it so much easier to register your ride in Arizona? IDK Do regular Californians have the right […]
