This Week: SFMTA Set to Approve New Muni Line

The Streetsblog calendar kicks off 2015 with a solid addition to the transit system: Tomorrow, the SFMTA Board of Directors Tuesday is expected to approve a new Muni route that would connect 16th Street BART to Mission Bay. The year’s first SPUR forums and public meetings for the first round of SFMTA street redesigns in 2015 follow later in the week.

Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Tuesday: The first SFMTA Board of Directors meeting agenda of the year includes approval of the new 55-16th Street Muni bus line, a route that would connect the 16th Street BART station to the new University of California, SF hospital in Mission Bay. 1 p.m.
  • Wednesday and Thursday: Join SPUR’s Wednesday lunchtime forum to see what the Bay Area can learn from Zurich’s “novel approach to public transit planning.” Another forum on Thursday will showcase the best and worst of European rail station design. 12:30 p.m.
  • Friday: The SFMTA’s public engineering hearing agenda includes a new bike lane on Euclid Avenue between Masonic and Arguello, sidewalk bulb-outs on mid-Irving Street and Holloway Avenue, and more. 10 a.m.

    That’s a pretty impressive list of (minor) changes. Mission is getting corners daylighted at 18th, 19th and 23rd with a painted bulbout at on 18th in front of Duc Loi.

    Yeah, well, that’s good but how about improving the existing service as well? Lately I’ve had more than the usual problems with MUNI. Rude drivers (shut the door in my face when he saw I was hurrying to board and he hadn’t started up yet), buses never showing up so people have to try to find alternatives, the other day the driver missed my stop even though I pushed the button in plenty of time, overcrowdedness – people stuck in the middle can’t get to the door in time…
