North Beach Examiner on Proposed Muni Changes Afoot in North Beach

The Examiner takes a close look at the proposed cuts on a couple of linnes with paltry ridership.

A little teaser from the story:

These cuts are two of many proposals being studied by Muni as part of its Transit Effectiveness Project, which, if implemented, would result in the most comprehensive bus rerouting done in my memory. And I’ve been here a long time. There isn’t a single line passing through or near North Beach (save the cable cars) that wouldn’t be affected in some way.

Take it away, Mr. Long.

Newsflash: Muni Needs More Money

It took a panel of experts

SFGate reports:

“One year ago, Mayor Gavin Newsom convened a panel of transportation and financial experts to hammer out a plan to find more money for the city’s struggling Municipal Railway transit system.

Today, with the group’s work nearly complete, the most politically plausible recommendations that emerged fall short of what’s needed to make significant service improvements anytime soon.”
