Click for San Francisco, California Forecast

San Francisco, USA

 

Transit News

This morning I have received three transit news update, one good news and two bad news.

Richmond to San Francisco ferry service has began. First riders are cheerily. Ridership of the new line seems promising. This is the latest addition to Bay Area's resurgent water transit.

The bad new is Chariot shuttle service to shut down. They provides customized bus commuting to San Francisco and other city since a few years ago. But the business is not sustainable after all. It was an interesting option to other mode of transport. Sadly the experiment is coming to an end.

The second bad new is Skip announced a 60% price increase. I already find its current price too high for regular use. Under the new rate schedule, a 15 minutes rental now costs $5. A small convenience does not worth $5 for me. Looks like I'm done with Skip. With the other company Scoot essentially unavailable, the scooter phenomenon is practically ended in San Francisco again.

The air was super clear on the New Year's day. From the mountain top, I saw Point Reyes, Farallon Islands, Mountain Diablo, San Jose. Everything was in clear view.
