I just attempted to locate a SamTrans bus stop near my MP office. How on earth can anyone make sense of those "maps" printed on the bus schedules. I've never seen such a useless mess in my life! Would it kill them to include a cross street every now and again?

No wonder our local public transit can't make any money from the fare box. If you can't find the bus, you can't pay the fare!
