Hey, good Muni news — Mayor Gavin Newsom announced today that Muni will restore 61 percent of the service cuts you saw in May (see the story by Streetsblog San Francisco, SFGate, and SFAppeal). The poor lines that got cut (which you all so eloquently eulogized in our Muni Obituaries) aren’t coming back, but you will see changes, including more weekday and weekend service hour, less wait time for Owl Service, and restored light rail vehicle service.
How did this happen? SFMTA says it identified $15 million in one-time allocations from county and regional agencies, and operational savings like reducing stand-by hours for operators.
How has your Muni experience been since the service cuts, and which service are you most looking forward to having back? Sound off in the comments, please.
