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,â€ said Robert Boden, SFTRU board member. â€œWe are pleased that Muni is listening to riders.”
The greatest benefit to Muni riders will be shortened travel times, especially given Muniâ€™s average speed of 8 miles per hour.
