5:05 am
and 6th member that week today, i'm speaking on behalf of california music association first, i want to thank supervisor wiener and jocelyn cane and others for leading this group and for inviting c mac to be part of the transportation group we believe that san francisco is hesitate in the direction of a twenty-four hour 7 community and exceeded that more and more night time folks will not be living in san francisco for this reason we feel the future of san francisco is enter twined with the surrounding community of the bay area and san francisco needs to take the lead for the night time
5:06 am
transportation we feel the long term bart needs to round 24/7 and can't wave a magic wound but the proposals by the working group and this committee are a fantastic first step toward the future of the last night transportation and san francisco is one the premier cities in the united states and possibly the world we think it's time the transportation reflect that. >> thank you very much. >> hello tom one the co-owners of the decreeing bar i want to share one of the employees conferees actually rode up on her bicycle and was saying this

5:08 am
responsibility to make sure that the works from 9 to 5 are able to get home safely and a as others who work at different hours also from the prospective of our bottom line and this industry and it's growth if you look at the survey the majority of responsibility said on a nuke of occasions choose to stay home and not patron news our busy and support our night life because no safe reliable way to get home as a matter for small business owners we need that thank you very much. >> good afternoon charles rath born on behalf of luxury our cabs thank you to the folks that g did a great job of research
5:09 am
research the working groups final recommendations excludes 3 taxi related proposals for shared rides and pop up cabstand and ride subsidies the most important the shared ride program for taxicabs do n idea to work with the technology partners like fly whole to provide great value to k34erz through reduced fairs at the same time the taxis will increase ridership a reduce the unpaid miles for drivers supervisors 3 is technically challenging and as challenging as a business proposition research has shown enormous shared profits for taxi rides 0 so we need to incentivize the risk-taking and investment in
5:10 am
the transportation problems another taxi recommended solution to have pop up taxi stands i want to make it easier and cheaper for businesses to get approval for pop up staples and explore funding similar to the successful transit program will that will help the last night workers in the east bay thank you very much and we look forward to participating in the last night group. >> good afternoon, supervisors i wanted to thank you for having this this is a great thing being one of the vice president's in the larger associations in the region i live out in the richmond it is farther areas for people to get to what i hear a lot of we can't get home and
5:11 am
getting can't go out i hear people getting kicked out of cabs because they want to come home into an area so starting with the discussion is something that is great for the neighborhood i wanted to mention that so thank you. >> thank you very much is there any additional public comment on item 3 seeing none madam chair may we close public comment. >> public comment is closed. so again colleagues thank you for hearing that and f thank you to the working groups this is a very significant step forward and sometimes those things can be daunting especially some of the long-term investment that have 24 bart service what i love about the report it clearly brokdz the short term immediate things and what are the long-term things and what can be
5:12 am
done in a cost effective way the fact that bart and permit have begun moving forward and the fact that muni is going to be moving forward later will be 1257b9d this is tangible steps forward to implement those recommendations and i think with the working group will continue to advise us i want to note two things it came up in public comment one is the few speakers talked about workers struggling to get home and the connection that has with some of the will affordability challenges we've had in san francisco the last night industry workers in that industry tend to be
5:13 am
middle-class and working class not high paying jobs to raids families but not generally high paying jobs a lot of the workers can't afford to live in the entertainment centers in san francisco we have plenty of those workers living outside the city in ante bay or in the southern or western part of the city it's not cheap but more affordable than the eastern and core parts of the city so it is not like folks are necessarily going from the mission and the castro they can afford to hop on a cab they don't have a usually transportation or either going to have to drive which is also challenging to go and park in
5:14 am
the late average or evening or go to work in the castro or mission street you have to leave our car for the entire can i i'm not sure but we're putting our workers in bad positions it really is a matter for a lot of people also, we the issue will cabs is very important because cabs provide a very strong supplement to public trams and minds that people will need to use the transportation i like the recommendation around moving toward shared cabs and cabstand to encourage people to use the cab system so colleagues thank you for the time today and i look forward to continuing this work to make those
5:15 am
recommendations a reality. >> supervisor kim. >> thank you. i just want to thank supervisor wiener and the task force i know this has been an issue that supervisor wiener's office has brought up since he's come into office this is an important issue we hear again and again i've been cornered at restaurant when owners fought who i am they really drive home the point how much last night transportation impact ability to do business and how many of their workers live far from the place of operation and often will in the east bay and how important last night transportation is it is great to see the categories of income with the services we provide and the numbers i had no idea on my given might
5:16 am
more people ridding last night public transit than at a post giants game i think numbers like that is really really helpful recalled of the numbers i agree that even though if it's not a large number we to think about last night transportation it's a question for mta what would it look like to have smaller shuttles running more frequently throughout the city i know this is an issue there are bus lines to treasure island not a 4r5r789 issue it is the only way to get on treasure island is it i can't bike or walk through if you're in the city and trying to get home on treasure island that bus is you're only option or you have to get a car if you can
5:17 am
afford it we're on pressing the agency on more frequent transportation just for the 5 resident or the 2 residents waiting thirty minutes you know downtown there's not a lot of pedestrian foot traffic and safety is important to push it is great to see that ac transit is partnering on the issue we know that bart has certain needs around repair i don't understand it it i want to push we're looking at last night transportation on friday and saturday nights maybe service starts later on saturday and sunday morning there's that time for maintenance regardless the bus can be another alternative bart didn't have to be the only one providing last night transit to the east bay but i'm glad to see all the work done thank you
5:18 am
