Hey there,First, I've been following and enjoying your quite informative emissions for a few months now. Thank you for providing a reasonable and intelligent voice in the arena of public transportation, the primary lifeblood that nourishes my independent movement.Just saw the most recent post regarding $1.96 per 311 contact. Is this the cost incurred by the department for each incoming call? I hope it isn't the cost to individuals who choose to make a phone call. If so, my employer might be a bit miffed with me.
It's sort of a made-up number, but don't worry, you don't have to pay it (directly at least).It's the amount of money that 311 is charging the SFMTA for Muni-related calls divided by the number of Muni-related calls.The MTA will be paying 311 $1.96 for each of those calls. It's sort of like if you launched a Movie Phone-type service them sent a bill to movie theaters to cover your costs :-/
