Poll time: Worst Muni line
At Muni Diaries, we don’t particularly like to quote-unquote go negative. But perhaps it’s just the nature of the beast â€” a site meant to reflect the goings on of a public-transit system in a major metropolitan city will, at least from time to time, contain nuggets of negativity like this one.
Last night around 11 p.m., an Examiner story caught my eye. The headline “J-Church line called worst performer in City” is kind of hard to ignore, no matter how much wine you’ve had throughout the evening. (Our friend Greg Dewar of N-Judah Chronicles gets a quote in the article.) So I threw it up on Twitter. Of course, I was looking for reaction from the community, as I am with this post. People definitely have their opinions of which line performs worse than the others, and are quick to defend some lines from the verbal spears of other riders.
In your opinion, what’s the slowest, least-on-time line in the city? Let everyone know in the comments. And let’s try to be constructive here and offer the agency some solutions as well.
Below the fold are the responses we’ve received so far on Twitter, in the order they were received (we’ll update the post if we get more).
MonstersInSF the N Judah is WAY worse then the J.Ask everyone and their mamas who live along the N line.
mikeon I know that when I use to take the J line, it was often faster to just take the M than wait for the J to get to Balboa Park.
njudah (responding to MonstersInSF) that’s bullshit. Every study has the N running the best. The problem is they keep cutting off Ns for KLMs.
armchairperform worst Muni ride I’ve ever had was on the N Judah, beyond sardinecan, went fetal on the floor. I’m not usually like That.
puppchen N can be more of a clusterfuck than the J, but dilutes it with high volume. J just has lower-volume chronic lameness.
sfsmskater J Church not on the todo list for run time adjustments for the fall
rnaglejr I take exception to the M lately, very shaky, unreliable service. Don’t like.
immunoqueen The N seems so much more infrequent/tardy than the J, especially in the morning. The N sucks in the afternoon commutes too.
