Muni's latest buses may not be popular with riders, but at least they're more eco-friendly than the mayor's SUV.
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom might as well tote around town in a bus. His current ride, a Chevy Tahoe Hybrid SUV equipped with the latest in mobile technology, has a bigger engine than the latest addition to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority's buses.
With more horsepower than a bus, it's no wonder that even with the gas-electric hybrid engine, it gets only slightly better mileage than the cutoff for the Federal Cash for Clunkers program.
The few of you who rode Muni's not-so-dearly departed 74X Culture Bus might have enjoyed the smooth ride of the new low-floor model bus.
Oh, the irony!

Jackson West wonders why the mayor doesn't just ride 74X on his trips to California.
