S.F. Muni free youth bus passes could cost $13M

Posted on October 18, 2011

SAN FRANCISCO — According to an agency study, a San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (Muni) plan to provide free bus service to every city resident between the ages of five and 17 would cost at least $13.2 million annually, The Examiner reported. That total is almost twice as much as an earlier projection. The program also wouldn’t be compatible with the region’s Clipper card.

The study also found that the extra passengers would require Muni to expand its peak-time service by 25,000 hours to 37,000 hours, at the cost of $6 million. Additionally, the agency would have to purchase new vehicles to deal with capacity issues. For the full story, click here.
