Thanks to our good friends at Hoodline, who dropped the story over the weekend, we've heard that SFMTA are working on rolling our prototypes for new N Judah seating configurations. SFMTA hopes that the new configuration will ease crowded trains during commute hours. Their solution? They are removing (yes removing) 14 double-seats and replacing them with nothing. Removing the seats will increase floor space, which will give an extra 10 people to get on the train. Hope they add more rails to hold on.
The pilot program started on May 18th and will end on Friday, May 30th. Riders will expect to see this new set up roughly every 70 minutes. And word has it that the L-Taraval will have a similar proposal later this summer.
What are you thoughts on the new seat configuration proposal?

Midline Studio will be hosting this year's Cole Valley Street Fair on Sunday, September 28th 2014. There are no details quite yet on what vendors and musicians will be coming but we are sure it will be tons of fun, so mark your calendars!
We had a great turn out and enthusiasm for our very first neighborhood happy hour. 15 minutes before the happy hour kicked off, there was already a group of folks waiting outside hoping to snag a Ice Cream Bar gift card (who had to say the pass code: SUNSET TUNNEL in order to redeem the freebie). Once the happy hour got rolling there was a lot of neighborly love, margarita drinking, taffy chewing, and schmoozing. Neighborhood celebrities, Greg Dewar (@njudah) and Rick from @colehardware, even managed to stop by! It was such a great time!
The happy hour couldn't have been possible without the huge support from Padrecito, Cole Hardware, The Fizzary, The Ice Cream Bar, and of course all those neighbors that came out to have it a great event. Thank you!!
We at ColeValleySF hope to host another happy hour or neighborhood event sometime soon. If you have ideas about how to bring the neighborhood together, feel free to contact us or comment below.
There's another antique shop coming to Cole Valley, Past Perfect. While some might have passed by their large space (over 7,000 sq. ft) in the Marina, Past Perfect is expanding to the former Cole Valley Cardio studio at 854 Stanyan. There's no timeframe on when they might be opening but just looking at their new storefront gives us the impression that they are opening soon!
Thanks to SF Racked for finding the info!
Tomorrow, Saturday March 8 from 10 AM to noon is your next chance to hear about upcoming proposed service changes to the 6 line.
The meeting will be held by the SFMTA to discuss upcoming citywide changes, including those to our own little hamlet, and will be held at the second floor auditorium at 1 South Van Ness.
The service changes relevant to the Haight (other than changed service frequency) includes re-routing the 6 to bypass majority of Cole Valley and Frederick's Knob as part of the new Transit Effectiveness Project.
Don't want to go to the meeting. Express your comments at tellmuni.com.
