Transit Last - San Francisco Transit Riders Union

sftru : "SAN FRANCISCO – Mayor Ed Lee gives away Sunday meters, fails to manage transit labor negotiations—stranding transit riders without warning—and pulls support for the Vehicle License Fee (VLF) which was to increase funding to Muni. Mayor Lee’s actions seem well on their way to amending the city charter to enforce a “transit last” policy.
"Somehow riders keep coming up at the short end of this stick,” said Daniel Sisson, SFTRU board member. "It is extremely difficult to see our city’s actions as anything but entirely hostile to the 700,000 transit riders each day. It’s a complete failure of leadership.”"
