Notes from the front lines:
Friday, Oct 21, 2016 at the MTA Board Policy and Governance Committee meeting, MTA Staff revealed the midyear review of the Commuter Bus Program would be presented to the MTA Board on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 which usually begins at 1PM.
This midyear review was negotiated with the Board of Supervisors when the current one year program began on April 1, 2016. Staff indicated the presentation would include general statistics, (constant) complaints, and overall program summary. Staff indicated this is a living document (which I interpret as subject to constant change.)
No mention was made of the HUB System which as part of the BOS agreement. Also, no mention of the current resident housing displacement study caused by the Tech workers.
So, mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 1PM and weigh in with public comment. The staff report/presentation should be available Friday, November 11, 2016 at 1PM (72 hours before the meeting).
Lastly, contact me if you are able to attend.
The SFMTA can just pay the anti-displacement mapping project for their report on the displacement. They have already done the work and their work product is a living document.
