What it need is at least more good basic pedestrian lighting. So that, that area does not look like it is always unsafe to be at. Even when people are not there waiting for train. There might be some people that walk through that area for what ever reason. Also at lest some cheaper basic décor or style for the area. IF that can fit into the budget.
I love this quotation:
If you want to meet homeless neighbors and learn what we've been up to with @HandUp, join us for #SF Homeless Outreach Day on Sept 11th! We are bringing together leaders at the city, nonprofit partners and community members to share more about homelessness in SF, approaches that are working, and ways you can engage that make a difference. Life on the streets and in shelters can be incredibly isolating, so this is a great way to show our compassion and humanity.
Come out and share with friends! Sign ups here: sfoutreachday.org/take-action/
Or donate to the San Francisco Fund here: handup.org/funds/thesffund
Just fyi...I got this reply August 25...hopefully, we will notice a difference...but, numbers count, i.e., I expect they don't do much if only 1 or 2 people complain or if people stop complaining, i.e., give up.
Thank you for your email. This is a common complaint. When Officers observe a motorcycle with a loud muffler, when possible, they issue a citation. I have also recently reached out to the Traffic Company and asked that the motorcycle officers assist us in enforcing this violation.

Cool feature with pictures and video from designboom on Peep Show:
peepSHOW is an urban viewing station that focuses the gazes and thoughts of passersby onto obscure or otherwise unnoticed street scenes.
Inspiring story of an Oakland resident stepping up and building small shelters for his neighbors: www.huffingtonpost.com/nations...
Kloehn has built 35 miniature homes for the homeless in Oakland and San Francisco. All construction materials (except for the wheels and a few other odds and ends), are sourced from garbage. He also runs workshops and gives lectures, teaching other artists and handypeople the tricks of the trade.
