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.

Thx: SFist.

Rebuilt 1914 Streetcar Headed for F Line

SFGate reports that Muni is taking one of the service’s oldest streetcars to put it back to service on the F line!

From SFGate story:

“These cars touched people’s lives,” said Nathaniel Ford, executive director of the city’s Municipal Transportation Agency. “It’s more than steel wheels and steel frames and wooden seats. These cars took people home to their loved ones, they took them to the doctor, took them to school.”

Thx SFGate.

North Beach Examiner on Proposed Muni Changes Afoot in North Beach

The Examiner takes a close look at the proposed cuts on a couple of linnes with paltry ridership.

A little teaser from the story:

These cuts are two of many proposals being studied by Muni as part of its Transit Effectiveness Project, which, if implemented, would result in the most comprehensive bus rerouting done in my memory. And I’ve been here a long time. There isn’t a single line passing through or near North Beach (save the cable cars) that wouldn’t be affected in some way.

Take it away, Mr. Long.
