News Flash: 5 Fulton Muni Line Gets It Together for HSB
For the first time in living memory, Muni has figured out how to get thousands of people to a Golden Gate Park music festival on the 5 Fulton bus line. In addition to added regular buses that started on Friday, Muni has also added a whole fleet of Golden Gate Park Limited vehicles, and they've been full but not packed like a tin of sardines.
Of course, this may only be a cruel trick on Muni's part. The return service downtown from the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival may be an underfleeted horror, but for the moment let's count our civic blessings. I'm also going to take full credit for the improved service.
Update: Sunday doesn't look quite so successful, possibly because every other white person in the Bay Area seems to be attending the festival today.
