Free Transit!


So Mayor Gavin Newsom has proposed looking at the possibility of making Muni totally free! This is a fantastic idea in my opinion. It would improve reliability and ridership. The big questions, of course, is where will all that lost revenue be made up, and how will they pay for the equipment and staff that will be needed to handle the increased ridership? It may not happen, but I think it's fantastic that Newsom is talking about it. More on this later.

Welcome!

Welcome to by blog. As you may have gathered from the title, I'm a big fan of public and alternative forms of transportation, especially trains, subways and lightrail. This blog is intended to promote public transportation and let you know what's going on (that I know of) in San Francisco (where I live) regarding Public Transit. I'll start with a video from City CarShare, which is a non-profit car sharing organization here that I'm a member of. It's allowed me to be able to get rid of my car!
