Trains, Wasted Time, and a Phalanx of Fare Inspectors
How many times has it taken far longer than it should to get downtown on the Metro, to be late, yet again, for a meeting, feeling so glad to have paid for such a fine transportation experience, to be confronted by 8 (count 'em - 8) fare inspectors strung across the Embarcadero Station exit? Way too many times. How productive is this exercise?
Get real. Make the rail system work within some semblance of reason and I'll be happy to show I've paid. In the meantime, you're creating yet more lost time at work and an even unhappier rider. Perhaps attention might be focused on the real issues, such as, ohhhh, running the system in an efficient manner, figuring out that running one-car trains at rush hour is flat-out ridiculous, and in a controlled tunnel how to avoid traffic jams. Stop wasting my time.
