Maps show old routes despite Muni changes

Muni passengers trying to determine their routes on the agency’s transit maps may want to view the material pretty closely before making any travel decisions.

The agency is still in the midst of replacing its 1,070 transit maps to reflect the major system changes that went into effect Saturday.

The overhaul to the bus and light-rail system was the largest in 30 years, and it included service reductions on some lines and additions for others. Thirty-seven of the 74 Muni bus lines experienced some reduction, including shorter routes, reduced frequency or slashed hours, according to the Municipal Transportation Agency, which oversees Muni.

Now that the changes are in place, the agency is working to replace its maps, which are located at various bus shelters and transit stations.

Work on the maps will cost $9,200, according to Muni spokesman Judson True. The agency hopes to have all the maps replaced during the next three weeks.

The service changes have gone relatively smoothly, according to Muni passengers and transit officials, but the work for the new maps is still a priority.

“Crews are busy getting this work done to help our customers understand the service changes,” True said.
