On a late Monday afternoon, nextbus.com predicted the 26-Valencia would arrive in 21 minutes at the Mission District Muni stop. The next one, it promised, would come in an hour and a half.
“There’s more frequency going to Los Angeles on Southwest,” said Henry Hartefeldt as he waited for the Valencia 26.
“At times I don’t need it, it’s there. But when I need it, it’s not,” there said Harteveldt.
As of Saturday, the bus that began in 1892 as one of the city’s oldest trolleys will end its 108-year run.
