Muni service and route name changes coming in April

April_2015_changes

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:
J Church
L Taraval
N Judah
5 Fulton
9 San Bruno
14 Mission
28 19th Avenue
38 Geary
71 Haight Noriega
K Ingleside
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.
