Trees and Transit First

Local Teamsters are playing the "transit first" card on 7,000 downtown parking spots that are owned by Caltrans. According to the union president, the daily cost of one of those spots is less than a roundtrip BART ticket, which ends up encouraging driving — so those parking lots should be used for tree farms or public art instead. Also, the lots are non-union. Not that that's the real reason behind the Teamsters wanting tree farms in the FiDi. [SFGate]
