I think they should remember that the holidays in 2012 were, for most people working in downtown SF, a 4 day weekend. Since there were only 3 work days during Christmas week and New Year's week, many people took the entire week off. I don't think that will be a normal occurrence every year. I would hope that during spring break, they would only be cutting service to buses that have a high student ridership because nobody I know of takes that week off from work.
@Ilivehere: They mean 12 Warriors games will overlap with 12 Giant's games causing a huge influx of people at one time, not that the Warriors will only have 12 events per year. The conventions don't cause a huge amount of traffic coming into the city all at once. Most of those people stay at hotels near Moscone.
"The fare-enforcement program invokes a huge amount of fear and really has a negative human-rights impact for minority and immigrant passengers," Browne said. "The fact that we have armed officers enforcing fares seems unnecessary and extreme."Human rights? Really? If those people are paying their fare then why would they have any reason to be afraid? That's bull****.
That's ridiculous! Californians should have priority over out of state students. I'm so glad I'm done with school and don't have to deal with this crap anymore.
not sure if i'll keep my account with them. i don't use my real name for a reason. you never know who you're going to piss off when you make a comment and i would prefer people not to know my real name. i don't see anything wrong with that. i'm pretty sure we had to give our real names to sign up so youtube has that info. it would be really easy for them to track down anyone who is bullying or using hateful speech without making everyone use their real name as a username.
i just moved out of the city but i used to live in a busy area on a main street and i would hear drunk people being loud all the time. BUT one night i was awakened (i had earplugs in and meds that made me sleepy so it was quite the feat waking me up) by a girl out on the street screaming and calling for help. i immediately got up and called 911. i told the operator i had no idea what was going on outside but i told her what the girl was saying. i wasn't the first person to call 911 that night but i wasn't going to assume that someone else already called. people who are commenting here and on other sites about how when you live here, you ignore drunk people, are making me really mad. it's one thing to ignore people yelling and laughing loudly but ignoring someone who is yelling for help and to call 911 should NEVER be ignored. even if it turns out to be a false alarm, at least you didn't take that chance on someone's life.
well, now that i'm moving to the east bay, i appreciate the price of the fast pass. my transit will be going up to $151. ack
