Muni Wants Corporate Shuttles to Pay to Use Bus Stops

The huge corporate shuttles that drive up to your Muni stop and get in the way every morning might finally have to pay to use Muni’s bus stops. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “Muni wants to share 100 of its stops with the growing swarm of private commuter shuttles, give priority to its own buses and charge a fee to the private operators.”
These corporate shuttles currently use about 250 Muni stops, according to the Chronicle story. The proposed test plan will only last for 18 months, and there hasn’t been a decision on how much the fee will be.
We’ve definitely heard increased complaints from you about these corporate shuttles. Remember when a vigilante Muni rider told the Facebook bus to get out of the way?
This proposal will be presented to the MTA Board of Directors this Friday. We’ll keep you updated.
So, do you think Muni’s new proposal is enough?
