Sure, we knew it was coming, but it was still a bit of a shock to see in this morning's Chron that MUNI is going to bump fares up to two bucks on July 1. In case you're wondering, that means that fares on our ramshackle-yet-beloved transportation system will have doubled over the space of five years.

Oh, and a bunch of bus lines are definitely going. And there will be cuts to the other ones, which means that the three packed-to-the-gills busses we rode yesterday (22, 1, and 71, if you're interested) are somehow going to be fuller. This is going to get rough. Thanks a bunch, state/federal/local politicians/unions/insert favorite blame target here!
