As I previously reported last week, San Francisco Muni's infamous fare inspectors are wasting taxpayer money by checking Giants baseball game passengers returning from the ballpark twice: once while entering the ballpark platform, and another time after leaving Embarcadero station.
IT HAPPENED AGAIN!
Let me go over what happened yesterday (Sunday):
- The Giants beat the Texas Rangers.
- I boarded the ballpark platform where a fare inspector (including infamous #32) was checking for payment.
- I rode the train.
- Exited at Embarcadero to be checked again by two fare inspectors at the fare gates.
Hasn't Muni learned a damn lesson from last Sunday? Odds of catching a fare evader at Embarcadero after a Giants game: Next to zero. Odds of catching a fare evader if inspectors moved to another station: better chance.
It really defeats the purpose of checking a second time if ALL the baseball game fans can't even get on the damn train at 2nd & King platform without showing a pass or transfer.
Muni Fare Inspectors are a total waste of tax money; why the hell should I be forced to pay $2 on July 1st, and suffer future bus line cuts and re-routes?
See this previous blog posting to learn just how much Muni wastes on these bunch of clowns' salaries.
