Is it possible that Muni Metro could become faster and *gulp* make more sense? Pinch me, please.

According to Streetsblog SF, SFMTA is set to conduct a final round of double-berth testing on Muni Metro trains this weekend. Double-berthing is when two trains board in the same station at the same time.

From Streetsblog SF:

“[SFMTA Director Ed] Reiskin said Muni officials will demonstrate the feature on Saturday morning for officials at the CA Public Utilities Commission, who must sign off before Muni finally allows two trains at once to board passengers within its underground stations.”

If this weekend’s test is approved, Muni could start regular double-berthing service as soon as December 13.

Progress!
