(Times247) On a typical work day in San Francisco, at least 27 private employers are picking up workers in shuttle buses — complete with cushioned seats and WiFi — at more than 200 stops across the city. The transit option is a booming private enterprise that reduces traffic congestion and air pollution.
Some in the city want to snuff it out, San Francisco-style, with government regulations and fees.
San Francisco Supervisor John Avalos wants to eliminate the cushy private shuttles and charge employers to use the Municipal Transit Agency’s spartan buses, according to the San Francisco Examiner.
