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.

The Reason Muni Was Especially Screwed Today?

Perhaps the answer to Tara’s post about the mysterious F dumping this morning on Market can be found in this story describing how, yet again, a car drove into the West Portal tunnel.

Automobile operators: In general, tracks are okay to drive on when they’re even with the surface of the road. Once that changes, and the rails rise up, and there is no road, you’ve gone too far.

You’re doing it wrong.
