In 2005, I’d just returned to San Francisco after a lost year in Venice Beach, CA. I no longer had a car, so I decided to see how long I could go without one. I’ve been car-less since then, and despite all of Muni’s foibles, would never want to own a car in San Francisco ever again!
So what does that have to do with the blog-what began as an email about a day on the N-Judah to 20 friends quickly spread around town, and I decided I’d write about my daily trips on the N for one summer. 11 years later and I’m still astonished people read this. I’ve won a few awards, including “Best Local Blog” in the 2008 SF Bay Guardian “Best of the Bay” edition, and I also co-wrote a cover story on Muni’s foibles (“The Muni Death Spiral”) to much acclaim in 2010.
Who am I? I’m a resident of the Inner Sunset and a former political advertising guy. I use the knowledge gained after years in the business to decode City Hall’s shenanigans, and Muni’s foibles. What I’m most interested in, however are the people and events that I come across as I ride Muni every week.
