Shuttle riders clog streets
I live on 26th Street between Castro and Diamond streets and was wondering why it was getting hard to park on my block during the day. I’ve lived here for 20 years and parking was never a problem until around mid-2013.
Sitting on my porch recently, I saw people parking on my block and taking the tech buses that pick them up at James Lick Middle School or at 24th and Castro streets.
I think the buses are a great option, but they should run where their clients actually live so the riders don’t have to come and park here.
This problem has to be addressed soon. The companies should poll the riders to find out where they actually live and where they want to be picked up. Stops and routes should be modified like school buses to fit the current ridership.
They are doing riders and neighborhood people, such as myself, a disservice by running on predetermined routes.
