Chu, Taraval chief, to discuss safety upgrades

Stepping off a Muni light rail vehicle can be an adventure at times, especially in the Sunset District, which has miles of above ground tracks that run on bustling city streets — a situation that has drawn the attention of Supervisor Carmen Chu, whose district includes much of the western neighborhood.

Earlier this year, Chu requested that Muni take a look at the conditions of transit passengers in the Sunset, which is home to two well-traveled metro lines, the N-Judah and the L-Taraval. One of Chu’s main goals was to find ways to increase signage on The City streets that alerts drivers to yield to departing transit passengers.

At 1:30 p.m. today, alongside Paul Chignell, captain of the Taraval Police Station, and various Muni officials, Chu will reveal which measures they are taking to improve safety. The press conference is scheduled to take place at the intersection of Judah and La Playa streets.
