Hundreds of S.F. Transit Stops To Be Eliminated

Municipal Railway officials in San Francisco recently unveiled a proposal to remove a certain amount of bus and street car stops.

Perhaps every bus rider has such experience that the bus on the most heavily used routes is always stopping to pick up and drop off passengers when he/she is hurrying to work or school. This week S.F. Municipal Railway officials made a proposal to eliminate some stops in order to speed up service.

""This will be controversial," said Muni chief Nathaniel Ford.

It also would be one of the cheapest ways to improve Muni's on-time performance, which hit a record-high 74.5 percent in the latest reporting period that covered the first three months of the year but still fell far short of the 85 percent on-time performance mark mandated by city voters 10 years ago.

The proposal is the next step in Muni's efforts to overhaul the transit system. Plans already are under way to steer more service to the most popular lines."
