    Re: Muni’s Many Mini Meltdowns

    You never hear the Mayor or anyone in City government talk about specifics when it comes to MUNI. It’s always in platitudes. TEP or percentage gains in efficiencies. Why don’t they ever ask why the 38-Geary runs 3mph out of downtown when it has dedicated lanes? Or why the subway breaks down 52 times a year while you’re on it. Or why one bus stop is 50 feet away from another bus stop.
