Mayor Ed Lee to Streetsblog: TEP Is Top Muni Priority
PHoto by Steve Rhodes
TEP contains recommendations of a years-long study that aimed to make Muni more efficient by line changes, bus stop consolidation, and other strategies for each Muni line.
Lee told Streetsblog’s Bryan Goebel:
“The Transit Effectiveness plan and program has to be implemented all the way. There are some fantastic ideas that have been presented, some great policy reflective of the TEP. I would like those things aggressively implemented.
“I also think that they have to quickly come up with financial schemes that would get their revenues up and make sure they’re not losing any money.”
The new mayor has made some controversial remarks about Muni, calling Muni an embarrassment, then telling the Bay Citizen that the transit system is doing fine. SF Appeal’s Susie Cagle even made a cartoon featuring the new mayor to illustrate Muni’s recent woes. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for Streetsblog SF’s interviews in the coming days to find out what else Lee has to say about our public transit.
