Muni buses will finally get air conditioning
Muni buses are getting air conditioning for the first time, for, you know, those 10 days of the year when you don’t need to wear a hoodie. The SF Examiner reports that 98 of Muni’s 880 buses will get air conditioning by September, and the rest of the fleet will have air conditioning installed by 2018.
John Haley, director of transit at the SFMTA, said that operators voiced a need to cool the air in the buses. The cost of installing air conditioning is about $5.1 million, SFMTA spokesperson Paul Rose told the Examiner.
I don’t know anyone with air conditioning in their homes, so I guess we’ll see you on the bus during our Indian summer?
