Muni service and route name changes coming in April
Who said Muni doesn’t fix itself? Oh, we probably said it. But never mind that!
On April 25, the changes you see above will take effect. Some involve increased service on certain lines, while the others are a shift in Muni’s nomenclature. From SFMTA’s Muni Forward website:
This April, 2015, the SFMTA is adopting the term “Rapid” for Muni’s Limited-stop routes, currently called Limited or “L” routes. The new Rapid routes will encompass all the benefits of the Limited lines, but will see significant increases in frequency and reliability in the coming months as the routes receive additional investment in transit priority improvements.
The Rapid Network
Muni Rapid bus and rail lines form the backbone of the Muni system, and include the following corridors:
9 San Bruno
28 19th Avenue
71 Haight Noriega
M Ocean View
SFMTA is also changing the names of several routes, including the one with the BEST VIEWS of San Francisco. The 33-Stanyan will be re-christened the more-apt 33-Ashbury/18th.
So there you have it. Muni is gonna fix itself, y’all. Baby steps. Baby steps.

idk how i feel about this…
So, the 33 Stanyan is going back to the name I grew up with, 33 Ashbury.
Lipstick on a pig…
The 8X will be called the 8, the 71 will be the 7… Few more but I forgot
Bringing back the 7.
Are the routes not listed in the “New Route Numbers and Names Coming, Too” section on this flyer staying the same as they were before April?
FYI: There’s an image of all the name/number changes if you click into the post.
Should the 48-Quintara-24th Street’s name and number stay the same as it was now? Because the number 48 is one of my favorite numbers, and I don’t think the route name and number should be changed because I don’t feel its future route alignment will go to the more popular places.
