Nearly $15 million for Muni’s new central communications system could be allocated next week.
The funding would pay for a new public address and electronic display signs at Muni stations, an uninterruptible power supply system and an emergency alarm program.
The $14.9 million allocation will cover construction costs for the first phase of Muni’s Integrated System Replacement project, a $46.6 million undertaking that will replace five of the agency’s existing communications programs.
A committee of the San Francisco County Transportation Agency, a transit financing agency governed by the Board of Supervisors, will vote on the authorization on Tuesday. The money will come from Proposition K funding, a local sales initiative designed to support transportation infrastructure projects.
