SFTRU Launches Campaign to Inform Riders About All-Door Boarding

SFTRU's brochure.

With Muni all-door boarding underway, other transit agencies are watching [2] and bus riders are catching on [3] — hopefully. To ensure a smooth transition to the new policy — which will help Muni maximize the benefits of faster boardings [4] and higher fare compliance — the SF Transit Riders Union [5] has created a brochure explaining the rules and etiquette of the all-door boarding system.

If you’d like to help get the word out, SFTRU is meeting up for its first “distribution party” tomorrow [6] at 3 p.m. at Buck Tavern (1655 Market Street @ Gough). SFTRU noted that they especially need volunteers who speak Spanish, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

The party will re-convene back at Buck at 7 p.m. to celebrate.
