    Took my first ride on one of Muni’s new LRV4s yesterday. A lovely ride, but of course, it was stuck in manual mode and crawled through the tunnel.

    Does anyone know if they’re looking to do anything about the door opening/closing speed? Given the number of stops on those lines, the extra seconds every time are quickly going to add up to a lot of slower rides.

  • LRVs are slower than the bus when they operate in mixed traffic and stop every two blocks. I welcome the bus substitution on Taraval when the train is down or during track work.
