So, Gavin's been pretty chatty about Muni lately, hasn't he?

First up, he's alleging that some cable car operators are stealing fares, "because on three occasions he rode the cable cars and handed over his $5 cash fare but never received the required receipt."

He's also brought up hiring more fare inspectors, which we hope is not the same thing as the once proposed plan to allow Muni drivers to make fare citations.

The Mayor's two comments made him seem sadly out of touch with the Muni riding masses, at least to this SFist.
