Bus Report #239
Tonight I rode the L Taraval from downtown. It's been a while: I'd forgotten how fast the Metro is, how nicely climate controlled it is. It was air conditioned, a nice change from my usual stuffy MUNI buses. I had a seat near the door. A San Francisco police officer and his massive German Shepherd police dog. The dog was making a whole bunch of us nervous. He kept jumping up on the cop and getting dangerously close to where I was sitting.
Finally the cop and the dog got out at Civic center. I felt relieved.
MUNI has some new Hybrid buses on some routes. I was excited about them until I saw them: they are the same stupid buses they have in Boston now, the ones with limited seating and a raised section in the back. If MUNI plans to run them, they better have more buses on those routes, because they'll need them. It will take longer to get around and the buses will be super crowded.
Damn you, MUNI.
