City Hall undermines the most important transportation project in half a century

Is City Hall hoping some outside entity will swoop in and save San Francisco from its own passivity?

Is The City failing to recognize how embarrassingly empty and lifeless its huge, new Transbay Transit Center would be without the trains and their tens of thousands of daily riders, (especially given AC Transit’s inconsequential 20,000 transbay riders per day, compared to BART’s 26,000 transbay riders per peak hour)?

Or has it forgotten about the tens of thousands of additional Peninsula motorists who would be driving into The City by 2030, if the Caltrain/San Francisco interface doesn’t get a whole lot better than it is today?

The fact that more street congestion would inevitably result in more Muni slowdowns is apparently of no concern to City Hall. On the contrary, it appears that San Francisco’s politicians are currently focused on development and helping developers much more than on how their constituents and others will access and move about in San Francisco.
