SFMTA Meeting: Operator Convenience Facility Project

From SFMTA:

Please join us at a community meeting to learn about Muni’s Operator Convenience Facility Project. This city-wide initiative aims to provide accessible facilities and meet the health and safety needs of our Muni Operators throughout the city, while reducing schedule interruptions due to unplanned stops. The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the project details and to work with communities to address  questions and concerns. Two of the proposed locations that will be discussed are the  Hudson Ave. & 3rd St. location for the 54 Felton terminal and the second is the 3rd & Fitzgerald location on the 29 Sunset route.
