Y'see, if you want to find out where FastPasses are sold, Muni won't show you a map of locations -- instead, they provide a text-only list of vendors, sorted by their zip codes. Finding the closest vendor is therefore like playing a text adventure on a Commodore 64 when what you really need is one of them new-fangled CGA computer machines. We'd have thought that an agency whose function was to move people about the city would have an aptitude for providing, y'know, STREET MAPS, but no -- Muni expects you to do some kind of zip-code-based geographical arithmetic in your head and magically divine the closest vendor.
But no longer! We are released from Muni's cruel texty tyranny, thanks to Skot9000 and his stupendous ticket vendor contraption. Yaaaaaay! It's no longer 1992 on the internet! Hip hip hooray!
This failure of Muni's is so uncharacteristic -- they're usually so effective when communicating with their customers; from the confusing subway closure signs to the way that they only let you see NextBus tracking for a handful of lines, even though almost every line in the city has been functionally wired for NextBus for about a year now. Oh, hey, look -- Skot9000 has also found a way to liberate NextBus data for lines like the 5 Fulton, the 31 Balboa, and the 6 Parnizzle, too. Well, that's just peachy. Skot9000 for mayor! Nobody can make the trains actually run on time, but at least now you'll know how long you'll have to stand out in the cold waiting.
