That “article” calls the “tech-top notch” arrogant. I believe there’s plenty of arrogance to go around, including with the Mission Street hipsters who are so quick to point fingertips at big losses as the problem. 1. Public transit: If the bay area got functioning open public transit, the private buses wouldn’t be necessary.
But you can’t really take reliable, efficient open public transit in the bay area anywhere. That disfunction is exclusive to the bay area – most metropolitan areas, our size have functional public transit systems. This is a direct result of poor metropolitan planning that created non-dense, spread-out campuses a long way away from open public transit hubs (i.e., Mountain View, Palo Alto); and a network of incomplete and unconnected transit system (BART, Caltrain, VTA, MUNI). Yes, the private buses are air conditioned and also have WiFi. Why doesn’t public transit? 2. Public resources: The “tech top notch” is paying significant fees. Property taxes, income taxes, sales taxes are all benefiting San Francisco’s general fund and schools enormously.
In exchange, the technology people reach share the public resources (streets) too. Good luck having a financial recovery without the taxes produced by employees of these companies. And by the true way, Twitter, Google, Zynga, Yelp, and many other tech companies have large offices in San Francisco. 3. Regulation: MUNI absolutely needs to control the private busses (commute buses and tour busses) if these uses are employing the MUNI stops.
Totally fair, and the fact that there’s been no rules of the tour busses and private busses using MUNI stops indicates someone was not performing a good job. Usage fees need to be paid, schedules need to be synchronized, waiting times have to be regulated, etc. MUNI should be benefitting from the use of their stops, not being hampered because of it. 4. Rents: You can blame the “tech elite” for the lease increase.
I’m skeptical. I think San Francisco’s lease-control laws are in least partially to blame. It’s fundamentally impossible to evict someone from a rental unit in San Francisco or increase rents to meet dramatically increasing property tax bills. This has eliminated a complete great deal of in-law products from the local rental inventory. Also, foreign investment in SF real estate, where such units are being purchased and sit empty for “future use”, has also taken a lot of rental inventory off the market. Without doubt the tech employees are driving up rents, but that is true of the entire bay area, and there are multiple complex factors involved. 5. Tour busses. I see them too, they drive crazy, and are mostly unfilled sometimes.

But San Francisco needs to welcome visitors who spend a lot of money, and there are large elements of San Francisco that are extremely unfriendly to travelers. Clean up MUNI, the Civic Center / Tenderloin / Market Street area, and then maybe we can discuss putting the travelers on open public transit rather than tour busses.
30 (a discount of 40%). Even though the wholesale price is not just a 50% discount from retail, it gives a large saving when compared with the discount store still. The only issue we haven’t addressed is the need for volume. We have been somewhat simplistic in this debate, since we haven’t considered how quantity changes the low-cost price.
