They tare down 280? It’s transportation. Paint the streets? Transportation. Cut down a couple of trees? Transportation easier for people to walk. Why? It’s transportation.

    Too many pot holes ruined streets and crappy muni all because they’re saving the money for their “transportation”. All Bay Area counties and cities are beginning to have the same problem.

    It’s all this ABAG plan Bay Area crap. Including the MTA which happens to be in the same office as the Sfmta.
