not too familiar with sf politics but doesnt chinatown have much more political clout than the richmond anyway? i dont blame the merchants for opposing brt as it will eliminate a regular traffic lane.

really, be it standard gauge heavy rail or bart, the geary corridor needs underground rail, period. i dont think even muni will cut it (with its slower speeds and small trains).

gordo, u say there was a proposition in 1933 to bring rail to geary. 80 years ago?!?!? man, thats depressing.
