A month of Muni, in visual form
Ever wonder how the gods see Muni? Us, too. Eric Fischer has gone and outdone himself with the above image. According to Mr. Fischer:
“Average speed at each location according to NextBus, April 13 – May 21, 2010. Black is stopped (less than 3 mph). Red is slow (3-5 mph). Blue is normal operating speed (5-9 mph). Yellow is fast service (9-19 mph). Green is rapid movement (faster than 19 mph).”
Who knew Muni data could be so purty? I’m going to think of this next time I’m stuck on a metro car in a tunnel.
Oh, but our boy Eric isn’t done just yet:
“Average speed at each location according to NextBus, April 13 – May 21, 2010. Each level of gray represents a speed increment of 0.1 mph, up to a threshold of 24 mph.”
24 mph, eh? I’d like, just once, to be on that bus.
I’m surprised that a MUNI bus will hold itself together if the MPH exceed 24/MPH for any extended period of time.
Kennau Reeves’ bus wouldn’t fair too well in SF.
