SF Transit Riders Union: Rapid Transit Meeting

From SFTRU:

Rapid Transit Network for San Francisco

SFTRU’s long-term campaign is to implement a Rapid Transit Network throughout San Francisco. The RTN will be a core system of transit lines that offer the best reliability and quicker trips for transit riders. In particular, SFTRU is advocating improvements to the 17 most heavily used Muni lines (E, J, K, L, M, N, T, 1, 5, 9, 14, 22, 28, 30, 38, 49, 71), which SFMTA has identified as the “Rapid Network” in its Transit Effectiveness Project. This is a bold vision for our City as its population grows. With the implementation of a City-wide Rapid Transit Network, residents and visitors alike will be able to seamlessly navigate San Francisco, and the City will once again be at the cutting edge of public transportation.

Bus-Mounted Cameras for Transit-Only Lanes: More Please

|
It may be hard to tell, but mid-Market Street’s center lanes are supposed to be free of private automobiles. That’s right — all of those drivers on the trolley tracks, blocking buses from using boarding islands, are probably there illegally (it depends on the block). While this new Stanley Roberts segment about transit lane enforcement with bus-mounted […]
