We’re busy improving service and building new infrastructure to continue moving Muni Forward. Watch a short video to learn how. Check out the capital improvements and service changes that are already underway to learn more about what we’ve got cooking.
Capital improvements are projects that maintain or improve infrastructure, like roadways and transit lines. Muni is investing money back into the system by delivering capital projects that improve the overall transportation system in San Francisco. Check out our interactive map to see all the capital improvements we have in store across the city.
These capital improvements—also known as Transit Priority Projects—are designed to address transit delay, improve reliability, and increase the safety and comfort of customers along our most heavily used routes. These projects include a variety of treatments that specifically address the root causes of delay and passenger frustration, like traffic congestion, transit stops that are spaced too close together, narrow travel lanes, and slow boarding times. Project elements include lane modifications, traffic signal and stop sign changes, transit stop changes, parking and turn restrictions, pedestrian improvements, and many others.
AT SFMTA WE’RE WORKING HARD TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR MUNI RIDERS TO GET AROUND SAN FRANCISCO AND GIVING OUR RIDERS WHAT THEY VALUE MOST—THEIR TIME!
In January 2015 we began our service increases by launching the new 55 16th Street line connecting 16th Street Mission BART to the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay.
In April 2015 we rolled out our new “Rapid Network,” prioritizing frequency and reliability along San Francisco’s most heavily used routes. We also launched the second of a series of four planned service increases which directly benefited 165,000 customers! These service increases included increases in bus frequencies, longer AM hours, additional 40’ buses, and Sunday service for the 38R.
In September 2015 we launched our third round of service improvements. This included brand new buses to make for a smoother and more comfortable ride, increased frequency and shorter wait times between buses on some of our most heavily used routes, larger buses on our crowded Express routes, expanded service hours in response to what we’ve heard from riders, and updated routes with new expanded connections across San Francisco. These Muni improvements are expected to provide more frequent transit service to 140,000 Muni riders.
And in April 2016 we rolled out the fourth and most robust package of improvements, which included service increases and expanded hours on 30 lines spanning the city. April was also a big step at enhancing our Rapid Network with the launch of all day Rapid service on the 28R.
More service increases will be coming. Stay tuned!
