The Bay Citizen found that only 60 percent of Muni vehicles run on time, which is probably no surprise to riders who take the bus on a regular basis. “On time,” according to the city charter, means a Muni vehicle arrives at a stop no more than one minute early or four minutes late. So which lines are the most/least on time?

Earlier this month, The Bay Citizen found that SFMTA has not been accurately reporting its on-time performance. Today’s interactive chart looks like more data to support the previous report.

According to this report, the top five on-time Muni lines (the 88 being the most on-time):

  1. 88-BART Shuttle
  2. 1AX
  3. 36-Teresita
  4. 31BX
  5. 1BX

And the worst? The least on-time Muni lines (the 76-Marin Headlands being the least on time):

  1. 76-Marin Headlands
  2. L-Taraval
  3. M-Ocean View
  4. KT-Ingleside/Third Street
  5. F-Market Wharves

You can check out how your line performs in an interactive chart on The Bay Citizen’s website.
