"Homeless people in San Francisco are exactly that -- people. Then why are most of them forced to go to the bathroom on the streets? I noticed this problem running in the early morning down Market Street - -San Francisco's main vein for traffic and the homeless. The goal of this campaign is to increase the urgency of San Francisco's Public Works program to build more self-cleaning, 24-hour public restrooms."

Viva MARTA Army!

"Unlike your standard riders’ union or transit advocacy group, where folks vocalize and letter-write, the Army stirs up enthusiasm for Atlanta’s trains and buses by helping citizens directly improve them. Its first campaign, “Operation TimelyTrip,” encouraged citizens to “adopt” the responsibility of keeping bus stop information up-to-date; as MARTA changes its seasonal routes, the Army provides special laminated schedules for specific stops to individuals who request them, so they can help fellow riders easily navigate the system (the posters gamely advertise the names of stop-adopters). The second campaign, launched October 19, is raising funds to buy garbage bins for bus stops in East Point, a high-poverty suburb southwest of Atlanta. (The city of East Point has agreed to install and service the cans.) So far, 312 bus stops have been adopted through TimelyTrip—in neighborhoods across the income spectrum—and $5,000 in donations have been collected among community members for “Operation CleanStop,” mostly in $5 and $25 increments."

Despite the addition of public "Pit Stops" around the city, it's no secret that San Francisco has a poop problem. To bring the issue to light—in an unavoidable fashion—mobile shower provider Lava Mae plans to place a massive toilet in the center of Hayes Valley this Saturday, November 19th.
