More Muni changes coming this month
As though to suggest that April 2015 service boosts and route name changes were merely the appetizer to this grand meal, SFMTA has announced a second course of nifty newness as part of its Muni Forward program.
SF Examiner reports:
SFMTA will increase service in a number of Muni routes, in no small part aided by a previously announced new 37 buses.
But those increases also come on the heels of another, less well-known upgrade: The restructuring of the 5-Fulton line, which will be voted on Tuesday, Sept. 1 by the SFMTA Board of Directors.
For the math- and calendar-challenged among you, September 1 is TODAY.
But wait! There’s more!
Some of the new Muni Forward changes are sporadic: The 43-Masonic will extend its route to Fort Mason, the 7X-Noriega Express will extend to The Embarcadero, and the 9R will see its service go from a sluggish 12-minute frequency to a speedy 8-minutes per bus. The K-Ingleside, 9R-San Bruno, 22-Fillmore, 21-Hayes, 43-Masonic and 24-Divisadero will all see an increase in frequency.
The changes will go into effect on Sept. 26, 2015.
