Awesome person and Muni rider @cripsahoy, who writes A Streetcar Called Taraval, today describes her recent tour of Muni’s LMC (Line Management Center). Among other interesting tidbits, we liked this:
The trains are managed by one employee with the lines separated across four LCD monitors. He has a printed schedule and some more reference materials on the desk in front of him. As he watches the vehicles cross the screen, he calls operators and tells them to turn around trains and answers calls from stations about other train timing issues.
Read the whole post at A Streetcar Called Taraval and learn a little more what it’s like to manage the mess we call Muni.
