Yeah, the intermittent Market St. bike lanes (which run past MTA HQ)
are embarrassing and discouraging -- between cyclist resignation and
vacation distractions the SFBC "AMBLE" effort hasn't gotten much
traction yet, even at that I don't know how much a volunteer army can
do -- we need a serious commitment from the city/county side to
giving Market Street proper bike space, surface quality and
enforcement. I hear Chris Daly was talking tough about withholding TA
resources from Muni till they start playing along with Market Street
Plan implementation, I'd say general squeezing on MTA for Market St
action is needed on all fronts, please share your bright ideas . . .
