Steps to Take
(updated January 21, 2015)
1.) Dont give up on Prop A. Thanks to vague and non-binding ballot language, there is still an opportunity to use the $500 million in new transportation money productively. San Francisco has some very specific transportation improvement needs (See "19 Steps to a better Muni" on the SaveMuni Home Page). Those promoting Prop A were clearly more focused on maximizing special interest votes than in actually making it easier to move about San Francisco. However, the ballot measures is worded in a way that makes it possible for the SFMTA to do the right thing by putting the bond funds to optimal use. Help make sure that the Mayor, Supervisors and SFMTA Board members know this.

To bring Muni to peak operating condition will require the active participation of Muni riders, Muni drivers and others who care about the system. To get this job done will take work, networking and coalition-building. Please join us in helping to make transportation in San Francisco faster, easier, less crowded and more reliable.
