For my money, the Bay bridge can stay closed. I couldn’t believe what a difference it made when the Bay bridge was closed over Labor Day weekend. My crappy, noisy, stressful SOMA neighborhood became quiet and pedestrian-friendly. Birds sang. Property values would skyrocket. Even just closing half the lanes would make a huge difference.
Anyway, to do my teensy-tiny part in making this a possibility, I just want to remind people that you can work around the Bay bridge closure even if your ultimate destination isn’t on public transit. Just take BART across and get a Zipcar the rest of the way.
