It's a battle of the press releases! Watch yourselves, or you might get cut.
Did anyone know about these free shuttles tomorrow night, over at the
16th Street/Mission station? We didn't. Not even the SFMTA site had info on it this morning, which we looked over for Halloween transportation info. Hmmm.
Also, while we understand that closing 16th Street station will help hinder people outside the city from coming to the Castro (yet problematic for many living inside SF), it's a little hard to get the word out about free (and convenient) shuttle service when it's done via a last-minute press release. Why are we learning about this just now? Behold:
Hello Supervisor Dufty.....We wanted you to be aware of the BART and MUNI - sponsored free bus service for transit riders on Halloween night. We don't want anyone to be left without transit options on Halloween night.
