Muni Approves $6.6M for 71-Haight-Noriega Line
A big bag of money is coming to the 71-Haight-Noriega line, with the goal of shaving off six minutes for each round trip. The San Francisco Examiner reports that the SFMTA approved $6.6 million as a part of the “Muni Forward” effort to add pedestrian improvement and improve service reliability.
More from the Examiner:
The project will eliminate a number of bus stops and add pedestrian bulb-outs along the route, officials said.
According to the SFMTA’s website, the upgrades will add to the streamlined commute offered by the recently completed transit-only lane on Haight Street and will complement a planned service increase for the 71, which is expected to go into effect next year.
Construction will begin in the spring, SFMTA spokesperson Paul Rose told the Examiner.
