MUNI Again…meetings in March/April 2010

January 29, 2010

Someone gave us a heads up on Muni – it’s short of funds, it needs more cuts, and its having public meetings about it.

Here’s the MUNI letter:

————–

“Dear Community Leaders and Transit Colleagues,
The SFMTA Board of Directors confronts a challenging budget situation for both the current fiscal year and the next two-year budget cycle. After layoffs and other cost-cutting measures that began last November, the SFMTA still faces a current-year $16.9 million shortfall.
The solutions before the Agency and those impacted by its decisions are both painful and unpopular.
Proposed solutions include:
Reduced frequencies and shorter service hours for Muni
• Muni fare increases and parking fee and fine increases

Your opinion counts. Please attend one of the following meetings to learn more and to provide public comment.

FY 2010 Focus
Town Hall Meetings, One South Van Ness Ave. @ Market St., 2nd Floor Atrium
Saturday, Feb. 6 – 10 a.m. to noon

As of now, the proposal for reduced frequencies does not appear to affect the 36 Teresita bus service.  It does affect the K,L,M lines that pass through Forest Hill Station, and several others as well.
