S.F. MUNI to undergo comprehensive review

Posted on August 7, 2008

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) announced revised staff recommendations of the Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP), the first comprehensive review of Muni in a generation.

SFMTA Executive Director/CEO Nathaniel P. Ford Sr. and City Controller Ben Rosenfield reviewed the revised recommendations put forth by SFMTA staff with the project’s Policy Advisory Group, which is made up of key Muni stakeholders who have met regularly over the course of the TEP.

The SFMTA plans to seek approval of the revised staff recommendations from the board of directors at its September 16, 2008 meeting. Reliability improvements, delay reduction efforts and related pilot projects will continue in the months ahead, while route and line changes could be implemented as early as July 2009, depending on the required environmental assessment.

In February 2008, TEP staff began a four-month review of the draft TEP proposal by Muni customers, community members, employees and other stakeholders. During the outreach period, the TEP team conducted 11 public workshops, over 50 community briefings and 40 employee roundtable discussions. The project experienced 20,000 unique hits to its Website and received over 4,000 comments.

The revised recommendations continue to emphasize efforts to improve Muni’s reliability, reduce travel times, and create a comprehensive and improved route network that better reflects the changing travel patterns in San Francisco.

A TEP overview, the revised recommendations, and extensive route-by-route data and maps can be found on the project website at www.sfmta.com/tep.
