Ah, NextBus, If you ever want to start something, start talkin’ NextBus and you set off a range of emotions, urban legends and angst that can set off people like few other issues can.
Then, of course, there’s this little error on 9th, at Irving I spotted this weekend (as did one of our loyal readers from SF State!) Now, my camera phone’s shutter speed can’t capture a flickering NextBus sign in its entirety, but if you look closely you’ll see a NextBus sign freshly installed at a stop that only serves the 44 O’Shaughnessy.
One problem: the sign is a light up sign for….the N-Judah. Another problem: every thing I’ve read suggests that diesel lines (such as the 44) are going to be the last ones to get a NextBus upgrade.
