Market Street! More than 20 transit lines run down the street, with 125,000 boardings each day, said Paul Rose, spokesman for the Municipal Transportation Agency. So, should San Francisco close off Market Street to private vehicles? "We've had this debate for 20 years," City Attorney Dennis Herrera said. "We need to do it in a comprehensive way." A number of mayoral candidates at a Monday forum agreed that closing Market to private cars would speed transit and make bicycling safer. [SFGate/photo via Grey van der Meer]
