    Rather difficult for this one to be MUNI’s fault when the bicyclist rear-ends the bus.

    I guss this is why there was a 45 minute wait for the 43 this evening.

    Ah, yes, a bicyclist ran into a bus in the Sunset, so it makes perfect sense that buses would be delayed nearly an hour in the Presidio. It’s not like Muni has standby drivers and vehicles waiting around for just such an eventuality.

    this sounds like a right hook.

    and, if the cops blamed the cyclist, then it was definitely the driver’s fault.
