    Only in California!

    This would never work in London.

      Out of curiosity, why do you think this would never work in London?

        London puts a lot of money into its public transport system and from my own experience it works pretty damn well. Lots of buses, they run all night etc

        The way I see it, the bus system in London is actually reasonably clean, pleasant-smelling, frequent and on-time, as-is. It's also such a large and spread-out city that designing routes that serve a big enough chunk of the demographic sounds incredibly difficult, even with the destination being the same. (City/Canary Wharf workers?)

        The biggest reason why this has potential in SF isn't because it's a bus with coffee/snacks, but because Muni is completely disregarded as even being a transportation option by many upper-middle-class San Franciscans. I don't really see the same thing here in London.

        Maybe not never, just not as well.

        The public transport system in London has huge investment. Every single penny they make goes back into the system, so no one really has a problem with the busses and routes we already have. Meaning there's not much of a problem to be solved.

        The new route masters are pretty damn swanky...

        Plus us English are quite reserved, I woldn't personally want to be seen on a cafe bus thing.
