Is there purposeful foot dragging implementing even the Market Street
study, or is it just typical inefficiency?

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 . . .
