Newsom announces major changes for Muni
February 26, 2008 12:34 PM
Mayor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday at Jack Adams Hall a proposal to overhaul several Muni bus and train routes to help improve Muni's on-time performance.
“What [is] a better place to announce this project [than SF State] where students use two of the busiest routes in San Francisco?” Newsom said.
The proposal is called the Transit Effectiveness Project. it comes at time when Muni's on-time performance has been at a stagnant 70 percent. “[This is a] big deal,” Newsom said. “People want to see higher on-time performances."
The project would include eliminating not just bus stops but bus lines themselves.
“We have to make drastic changes in order to make dramatic changes,” Newsom said to SF State students.
Improvements include an all day service for the 28-Limited bus and improvements with the 28 buses and M Line.
According to the proposal, the J-Church line would travel to the outer portion of the M-Ocean, connecting the Mission and Noe Valley to SF State.
“We want the 28 bus to be better managed with more street supervisors,” said Julie Kirschbaum, project manager for TEP.
Improvements will slowly be making its way starting in July 2009.
