F Hits Cyclist (Update)

Update 2: Still no official word on what caused the pile-up of buses and trains on Market this morning. The headline of this post is what it is because, frankly, we ran with hearsay rather than verifying. Sorry for the sensationalism.

That said, we don’t know that a train didn’t hit a cyclist. Anyone reading this who has information is encouraged to let us know. You can leave a comment here on Muni Diaries. Thanks!

Update 1: Still no word on this morning’s accident on or near Market. But Tara snapped this photo of the Muni backup on the street:

Original post: Or, is it “Cyclist hit by F?”

Details to come …

Polishing a Turd

Okay, that headline is harsh, but Muni’s been letting us down handsomely lately.

And now, it turns out, the beleagured agency is set to receive $7 million from the Homeland Security Department.

Never minding the cognitive dissonance of a right-wing-run government agency doling out money to a public transit agency, I just want this money tagged and tracked. Want to know how much is spent on what, and how, and let’s look at the results.

Count me skeptical toward this doing anything to fix the multitude of problems facing SFMTA.

Thx: SFist.
