It’s 7 a.m, 45° and headed to 68° and yes, this is beginning to feel odd. Details for the next 10 equally odd days are here.
All of the details of Tuesday’s long SFMTA meeting that approved letting the tech shuttles use Muni stops are in this post at SFGate.
Here’s an interesting bit inside the post:
And the meeting and protest come just days after a study from a pair of UC Berkeley graduate students found that 40 percent of 130 riders surveyed said they would move closer to their jobs if the shuttles did not exist. But 48 percent said they would drive alone to their Silicon Valley jobs.
The study, titled “Riding First Class,” by transportation planning students Danielle Dai and David Weinzimmer, also found that the typical shuttle rider is male, single, childless and about 30 years old with an income of $100,000 or more. About 85 percent rented their homes.
Shuttle users surveyed said they chose to ride the shuttles because they’re free, they can work and collaborate with co-workers to and from work and avoid traffic congestion.
Onto more amazing news. Don’t know if you saw our SNAP on Josue’s surf report that we posted this week. In it, he predicts massive waves and sure enough, SFGate reports that Maverick-size waves could reach Ocean Beach by Friday.
Too bad the waves don’t come with rain because the great weather we’ve been having — summers are never this nice — has a price. Mother Jones details the problems — the biggest being an ongoing and seriously bad fire season.
The Canadian company Bixi that supplies bike-share program in San Francisco, New York and other big cities has filed for bankruptcy, according to a report in the NYT. It’s unclear how this will impact San Francisco’s bike share program, which will soon be expanding to the Mission.
If you so chose, you could spend your whole day in meetings learning about San Francisco Government.
