David Chiu To MTA Board: Speed Up MUNI Buses

October 21, 2008 — David Chiu called on the Municipal Transportation Agency, which oversees MUNI, to approve the proposed “Transit Effectiveness Project” without delay at today’s MTA board meeting in San Francisco.

The Transit Effectiveness Project is a citywide proposal to increase bus capacity by 20 percent on the busiest routes in the city and speed up express bus routes.  The Transit Effectiveness Project plan no longer includes cutting the vital 39 Coit community route in North Beach. 

As a Fast Pass holder who rides MUNI to work, David Chiu is the only candidate in the race for District 3 Supervisor to publish a plan to fix MUNI and turn our transit network into a world class system.
