The MTA Board of Directors hasn't made an official decision yet, but at a meeting last night, they made it clear that raising the cost of the $45 FastPass was unlikely, according to an article in today's Chronicle. Muni had proposed raising the cost of the pass to as much as $60 over the next two years. But MTA Director, Shirley Black, told the audience, "I would like to do anything but raise the fares." Car owners probably won't be so lucky. Higher parking fees and fines are still on the table and MTA officials seem more likely to approve those changes then penalize public transportation riders with fare increases. –Andy Wright

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
