Fw: Municipal Transportation Agency hearing on October 16, 2012

The sfmta board hearing from today is linked below. The public comment
agenda item (3:08:40 - 3:52:20) was delayed for hours. Speakers were
to one minute.
Many of the speakers were either incensed by recent policy developments,
or otherwise passionate about their chosen topic. Most comments regard the
issue that sfmta recently issued 150 - 200 medallions to itself for
subsequent direct leasing to color schemes, as opposed to the long-standing
practice of issuing medallions to waiting list applicants.
On November 20, sfmta plans to make final decisions on future waitlist
policy and other taxi issues.
