While the actual design and construction of the new Bay Bridge has taken nearly a quarter century and overrun its cost estimates by billions of dollars, the California State Legislature did its own small
With so many people in this city driving like they're auditioning for the next Dukes of Hazard reboot--not to mention the bicyclists who think they're cars--and a general lack of yellow bus service,
Finding the right place to live involves finding out what what part of the bay area fits your needs.
Do you have children? Will you want to drive or take public transportation? Do you like the cool coast or warmer parts of the Peninsula? Do you like the faster, energetic city of SF or mellow suburbs?
The other way to help narrow your search is to determine the price $ and size sqft of home you're looking to get. Do you need a backyard? Room for pets? Garage? etc. Have you checked your credit scores and lined up some financing options?
Once you have answered all or most of these questions you will be able to start selecting areas to look at.

The SFMUNI 18 line bus is supposed to come every 20-30 minutes depending on the time of day, which way the wind blows and how lucky you are. The last bus is around midnight. The campus is only about 1.5 miles away by bike or on foot and about 2 miles by car/bus. The walk is actually quite enjoyable through scenic Lake Merced. I believe it is only 3 stops until the campus. If you continue past the campus you will end up at Stonestown Galleria where you can catch the M train downtown.... more

I've used it! If you live on California Street near Nob Hill and/or on Van Ness, the trolly is a really cool way of getting to work in the Financial District (California line) and, if you use your MUNI card, it should be the same price as a bus. But yes, you can commute on a trolley!... more
NH switched its tolling last year, we have a high speed lane (55mph) where you do not have to stop but there is still lanes for cash that are seperated a mile out by dividers and lots of signs. It works well. On our other toll roads they had previous switched to easy pass with the middle lanes you drive thru at 25 mph and the right sides are cash. Despite the multiple signs tourists can not read and often swing over from the easy pass to cash lanes 5 lanes over without looking or stopping. I dont see how having no cash lanes will work unless they make people get offbefore the bridge....... more
