Road crews uncover old streetcar tracks during sewer work. As we move around in our modern world, we tend to forget how things used to be. But every now and then, during the most meaningless of moments, we are reminded. That’s what happened on Monday, when cub reporter David H. came upon a road crew [...]
Just in time for this Sunday’s Warren Hellman Tribute concert, SF Rec & Park announced today that the Golden Gate Park Shuttle Bus service is now free for all passengers. It previously cost $2 for an all day pass to ride the shuttle. The shuttles are available every Saturday and Sunday between 9am and 6pm, [...]
RichmondSFBlog reader Gideon alerted us to this story that ran on CBS News recently about an unwelcome parker in the outer Richmond District. It seems that Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club, located downtown on Kearny Street, utilizes a special mobile stripper truck to entice visitors to their club. Women dance inside the back of the truck [...]
We got word last week that a local Pedicab company is looking to expand across the city, including adding routes in the Richmond District. Cabrio Taxi, known for their glittery red cabs, currently operates on the Embarcadero, offering rides to locals and tourists via their fleet of bicycle-powered taxis. According to their website, they also [...]
Next Monday, the SF County Transportation Authority will hold an informational public meetings on the Geary Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project at the Richmond District Recreation Center from 6:30pm until 8:30pm (251 18th Avenue). The BRT project is designed to speed up buses by creating dedicated bus-only lanes on Geary from Gough Street to 25th [...]
The San Francisco County Transportation Authority has announced one vacancy on the Geary Bus Rapid Transit Citizens Advisory Committee (GCAC). The Committee meets on a quarterly basis and advises the Authority throughout the project process. The Geary Bus Rapid Transit project is designed to speed up buses and make service more reliable and comfortable along [...]
Last night just before 9pm, a sinkhole trapped a car on the 3300 block of Fulton between 9th and 10th Avenue. Thanks to reader Jim for sending in the photos. Jim lives right where the sinkhole started forming, and says he first noticed it that morning. “It was just a couple of inches when I [...]
Another sinkhole appeared on the 3300 block of Fulton between 9th and 10th Avenues last week, this time taking a fire hydrant with it (and ironically, creating a new parking space). Early last week, a hole formed near the base of the fire hydrant near the corner of 9th Avenue and Fulton and as of [...]
It’s a new year and that means new ways for the SFMTA to grab revenue from residents and visitors to the city. Their latest brainchild goes into effect this weekend – metered parking on Sundays. What was once considered a sacred right of San Franciscans – free parking meters on Sundays – will be a [...]
This Thursday night, the Richmond District Democratic Club is hosting a public forum/discussion on the new bike lanes in Golden Gate Park as part of their February meeting. The RDDC has invited members from the SF Bicycle Coalition, pedestrian safety, seniors’ advocates, and the SFMTA to join the discussion. The bike lanes sparked a lot [...]
This afternoon around 5:30pm, a large sinkhole opened up at the intersection of Lake and 2nd Avenue. Neighbors reported that a car drove over the area and shortly after, the ground began sinking in on itself. We stopped by the sinkhole at 6:45pm tonight, and helicopters from two news channels were still circling overheard. A [...]
The Chronicle reported that five people were injured after the “topless” tour bus they were riding ran into some overhead wires while driving through the Richmond District on Friday afternoon. The double decker bus, operated by Big Bus Tours, was heading north on 12th Avenue around 3:15pm. As they crossed the intersection of Balboa and […]
Photo by James F. We got an email from reader James F. earlier this week that said “There has been an unusual trailer parked on Clement street by Lincoln Park golf course around 38th – 40th avenues. It would make a good picture.” So we said sure, send us a pic! And boy, he wasn’t […]
It’s been a full year now that parking meters have been in effect on Sundays between 12noon and 6pm. When the SFMTA put the new policy in place, they claimed it was “to make sure that motorists can easily find a place to park in commercial areas, which is currently very hard on Sundays.” At […]
Photo by Thomas Hawk SFMTA is looking for feedback from the community on two transportation issues facing the city – changes in MUNI service lines including the 2, 28, 28L, and 38L lines, and which MUNI stops residents think would be best for the Silicon Valley commuter shuttles to use. PROPOSED CHANGES TO MUNI LINES; […]
Scoot trainer Kelly at our orientation More and more companies are enabling San Franciscans to get around town quickly and easily. Last year, the city implemented the Bay Area Bikeshare program, enabling point to point, short-term rides at affordable rates. And companies like ZipCar and City CarShare have been around for awhile now, making car […]
Parking is going to get even tougher for residents in the outer Richmond if the SFMTA gets approval tomorrow to convert 20 residential parking spaces into car share zones. The Friday, July 11 the Sustainable Streets Division of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency will hold a public hearing in which 10 different proposals will […]
SFCitizen caught this snap of yet another creative use of the bike lanes on JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park. Congratulations to Pacific Cafe on Geary at 34th Avenue who are celebrating their 40th anniversary. Chronicle food critic Paolo Lucchesi wrote, “In a restaurant landscape where the bright young things are celebrated by media (yours […]
Photo by David H. Cub reporter David H. snapped this pic today of one of our first car share spaces being installed on Clement Street near 24th Avenue. These new car share spaces are part of a city-wide effort to convert 900 street parking spaces into ones reserved for car share companies in the next […]
Photo by Geoff C. Activist John Sears passed through the neighborhood on Sunday with his pack of mules. Normally he travels with 3 mules (Little Girl, Lady and Pepper), but this time he had just two. One is currently lame and unable to travel. They were seen grazing on the 14th Avenue side of the […]
