In San Francisco, a war is playing out over the fate of the Muni bus system, "with transit planners on one side, and people who didn't want to lose parking spaces to bus lanes...For Tenderloin residents who've gotten used to having bus stops on every block, the Muni plan is another example of fat cats in government neglecting a poor neighborhood. For transit planners, public transit advocates, and representatives for the elderly and disabled, who use public transit in large numbers, this change is actually a first step toward making transit work better citywide." Is the protest just "another questionable San Francisco social cause"?
