The long-talked-about topic of allowing back-door boarding on Muni buses will become reality as soon as this summer, according to a post on SF Transit Rider Union‘s website.
“SFTRU recognized that all-door boarding will create faster trips for riders, improve reliability, increase fare compliance, and save the agency money,” said Robert Boden, SFTRU board member. “We are pleased that Muni is listening to riders.”
The greatest benefit to Muni riders will be shortened travel times, especially given Muni’s average speed of 8 miles per hour.
