Muni doesn’t have enough mechanics, and its vehicles break down more than those of other agencies, according to this week’s SF Weekly cover story by Joe Eskenazi. Comparing to other agencies across the country, Muni employs fewer mechanics per vehicle, and statistically, its buses and trains “fail significantly more than those are other agencies.”
Eskenazi details how maintenance issues are recorded and processed for Muni vehicles, and makes a case that Muni should have installed a barcoding system to keep track of parts and inventory. Efficiency and automation are also problems for the agency, according to the SF Weekly report.
