electronically from their bikes it acts as a compliment to muni their electronic motor vehicles their devices and not motor vehicles under the code the mta didn't issue the tickets currently so the mta we think shouldn't be issuing those 0 motorized bikes we august and will submit follow-up. commentary the vehicle code didn't treat them the same as vehicles or motor vehicles the california case law states those are not motorized vehicles and in case law this should be
1:47 pm
address while the mta cited a list of non-motor vehicles this is no a list exhale but a ding importance within 0 motorized vehicles and all the vehicles we agree to disagree but we should be on the same page of not pushing people by denying them the right to take a one way trip home and their neighbors our pilot - >> yes. looks like there are a whole love people you indicate how many are in support. >> yeah. >> okay. very good. >> thank you very much. >> michael, andy, (calling names). >> >> good afternoon.
1:48 pm
>> michael keith i founded square feet and ask you not to impose parking limits on scoots one of the things that makes scoot different from the transportation that egging energized in san francisco is that we always follow the rules we've actually made up rules for the riders because we want to show the mta that we were serious not only about making transportation better for them but everything else in the city the best example our motorized bikes use the bike lanes and park on the street but we tell the riders not to do that out of respect for the community and percent the second point we don't allow our members to pick up and drop off scoots in our areas even though as non-motor vehicles they're not subject to
1:49 pm
the restrictions our riders don't understand why they can't take a shared small all electronic vehicle home at night we have imposed that a 4 thousand person, 50 thousand pilot project where we demonstrated through a substantial amount of data that we know how to run on street electronic vehicle sharing program with great success scoot is not uber we're not google buses we're impact face green quick and most importantly affordable we want to ask mta to stop impede listing our riders and hold off on citing the motorists until a proper form has been revised thank you

(calling names). >> good afternoon. >> hi john cab driver
1:51 pm
for all from a taxi driver seems like a terrific success so that said i came here to talk about the medallions and to mexico the 834 medallions the plan to cancel the programs i told the cab drivers with the medallions i'd come down here on their behalf their concerned in the city decided it wants to cancel the s medallion program i wrote the original proposal by the way, that if you wouldn't take those medallions away from the completed speaker cards and documents to be included should be submitted to the clerk. to the cab drivers that have been driving for decades not in the health condition to drive full-time but drive part time and if the city decided to stop
1:52 pm
the medallions don't yank it from them but let them write out the possession of those medallions and gradually instead of devastating them financially. >> next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon. >> hi, i'm argue speaking on behalf of the obscurities for the enforcements of parking restrictions guarantee i don't ride scoot received a deceasing degree in san diego with engineering and co-founder the stature in san francisco it is map and here's the mathematics their 5 times the vision of cars
1:53 pm
and murder 5 times cleaner every motorcycle you see on the roads if you see a second riders their as efficient as a muni bus they release parking and i encourage you we're leaving all those restrictions but especially for scoot the electronic obscurities are assessable in the gasoline counterpart as a resident of the alamo scare this will negatively impact not only me but many of the people in my community thank you. >> (clapping.) (calling names). >> good afternoon. >> good afternoon i'm a native and counter residents of san francisco working part times jobs and i'd like to voice my general
1:54 pm

1:55 pm
hope you'll support them (clapping.) thank you. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon good afternoon, everyone i'm also a native and current residents of san francisco i'm a student myself i can tell you the great things about scoot as everyone has but specifically for the proposal and permitting i think the important thing to note here that specifically in regards to 2 hour parking and requiring prims that scoot uses space that currently not utilized all so i think the intended purpose of keeping neighborhood and areas congestion free is not better served by not allowing scoots to
1:56 pm
park in those spaces they took place space not used by cars anyways so it didn't make sense that the goal of creating less traffic not to allow scoots to park in those places it encourages less car use and also very cheap and inefficient i currently am not working i'm a student myself as the previous speaker mentioned it is clear up so regular people that does have large income can access those vehicles especially, when muni is not available i use muni all the time but late at night and other times it didn't make sense so it scoot makes sense for everyone that lives here
1:57 pm
(clapping.) . (calling names) >> glen eagle good afternoon. >> hi, i'm here to give feedback from a taxi driver and actually happen to work all 3 days friday saturday and sunday i've seen the reports stanley robert the first night i have to reports on saturday, i saw a fight between my passenger i pulled up in the bus stop i'll allowed to do a taxi driver and the parking control officers surround my vehicle for a $288 ticket the passenger tried to board and a white parking

control officer almost slammed the door on his hand now the passenger and the parking control officer had to step aside when the police officers came in i wasn't sure in any passenger was going to get arrested i many to make my that he had passenger walk a block why is it we embrace technology and people are not using technology and did understand access to the technology inside so i think the problem i wanted to bring up i want to say people have such a misunderstanding of the taxis that is so much more technology a fixed gps and video cameras and marked license plates so i hope the parking control officer staff will understand our regulatory fees
1:59 pm

2:15 pm
of the best methods of transportation in the city it is convenient and can park mr. vice president anywhere and want to continue to work almost anywhere and it is also not expensive which is a big deal for us that knows this city is comprehensive o expensive more than new york so i hope our voices are as loud as they can be (clapping.) and (calling names). >> good afternoon. >> i'll briefly top our times i'm one of the older members 50 years and getting into credulous so muni has made me late many times when i signed up for scoot

2:18 pm
going to analyze we're excited to hear the progress both the environmental and sustainable working conditions we for some of us we think the solution to look at the types of programs and collective bargaining if you have folks driving and not supporting the wages and benefits this is not sustainable and green we love the work with our department and see you folks on monday the 15. >> alex troy the last person to turn in a speaker card. >> good afternoon. >> i use scoot for the longest time if have a car and i got on the service and it is on demand poem hire me to do odd jobs around the city for a while i
2:19 pm
had to rely on muni it made it challenging to get to difference jobs and limited the tasks to get done in one day as soon as scoot came along it was 1, 2, 3 or tasks to three or four and allowed me to get to different areas that muni if get there in certain neighbors and things like that that is another huge thing in the on demand economy like having scoot makes a difference and like you were saying coming back to the richmond area be able to drop the scoot off and not worry about it in two different areas to catch a bus home it
2:20 pm
definitely was a dream come try when scoot showed up so i notice a lot of people just in the bay area alone is 9 hundred active passengers and i know the service makes a big difference. >> (clapping). >> no one else cares to address the board public comment is closed. director reiskin we can't say discuss the substance not on the agenda i'm wondering if you could take another look at this policy and take another look and bring it back to the board. >> i'll be happy to as we indicated in a letter to you and the folks we got probably 4 hundred e-mail messages if people in support of our
2:21 pm
changing our rules what we indicates we're studying as many of you may know our old residential parking process and program and guidelines and rules enormous in terms of who is eligible and not this is one of the issues that is part of the study we were planning to come back already we can if scoot as additional robust review with the transportation vehicle code and happy to report back if we find anything as a result. >> any time when it happens. >> i think it was in our letter victoria. >> the memo indicated they'll be coming back to the board in september and there with a different policy. >> next year in 2016.
2:22 pm

2:23 pm
>> second. >> any further decision. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the i's have it, it is unanimous. >> berry toronto. >> yes. regarding the i s of all the items there are lots of items one item a red flag our coming down past the scare to make a left-hand turn on to kearny street the problem there are dangers you're not addressing every day dealing with tour buses double-parked in the right lane you let them sit there double parks for hours in the evenings i want to know why you've considered this more of a
2:24 pm
danger than the other hazards at the intersection the to blocks south of there so on kearny street then also, if you look at no resisting on red as pass over why is this difference than others why not a 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. restricts like the other no turn on red restrictions why is this difference i'm saying maybe a safety issue but so many other problems with those particular blocks that the agency is not dealing with thank you for your time. >> mbes. >> motion to >> >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? 10.3 please.
2:25 pm
yes back on the agenda 10.3 authorizes the director to have a contract for transit vehicles system and negotiated contract for the services to the highest proposal not to exceed for a 2 additional term. >> david pilpal i have concerns that the calendar item didn't indicate a cells only to go to the board of supervisors and the public outreach is thin this item was not presented to the cac with significant operating changes to the passengers i'm not sure the functionality but the current policy is that late at night transfers are cut for laid night and good for five or six in the morning transfers are only good
2:26 pm
for 90 minutes at all minds this is a change policy i'm not in favor of that night transfers are a good system and additional operating details by issuing the transfers the way it proposes rather than operators giving me to passengers i'm not sure with the new transfers look like and the materials will be made of where their environmental and consistent with the city's vinyl he i'm not sure who is handicapping this i'll maybe get answers to questions and i'll strongly encourage this to be brought to the cac before it is broths back to you for approval and mbes questions or comments. >> motion to approve.
2:27 pm
>> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? >> 10.5 the memorandum of understanding and the bay area to clarify the rules and responsibilities to for a newly contracting for the executive director and rise the cost allocation formula. >> once again on this item it is the metropolitan transportation agency and i don't know how it happens here it is not clear when costs analysis was done to result an additional will 7 hundred plus a year the awe pensions were not done so you don't i cannot but the cac was bed-and-breakfast on the future discussions like the
2:28 pm
next generation clipper i don't believe that restated agreement was brought to them and again there are impacts on the public i understand from reading the material that the chef board meeting are public and the director reiskin is the representative for that and i look forward to learning more about that to the extent this makes the system more rational i support that but if there were more examination and looking forward to talking about with the lady to see how this impacts. >> if you had not of taken this off the agendas but i'll address the extra 2 leonardo da vinci and $86,000 a year. >> the main difference i apologize we wrote the agency
2:29 pm
rather the compilation that us upsetting some people in terms of the call. >> we're fine thank you. >> what we found in terms of elevating the overhead cost structure first of all, it wasn't rational based on a number of cost drivers but we found there was a couple of agencies shouldering all the credit cards fees i think about half of our costs we pay or charged by mtc are a huge part of costs it was through collaborative meeting as among the agency lead by manifesting and bart deanna is spearheading this an agreement among the agencies this new cost
2:30 pm
