Muni to hold hearings about expanded service on two lines

Muni will hold public hearings next month on proposed changes to two of its most heavily-used transit lines.

The agency is recommending making permanent a complimentary bus line to its N-Judah light-rail service. Since June, Muni has been running its NX-Judah Express bus during the morning and evening commutes as a way to relieve congestion and speed up service on the N-Judah, which carries more than 45,000 passengers daily.

The bus route was originally conceived only as a pilot project. However, due to the success of the line, the agency will propose making the service permanent at a public hearing during its board of directors meeting on Dec. 6 at 1 p.m. in City Hall.

At that same meeting, Muni will also propose increasing service on its F-Market line, the historic streetcar route that carries more than 18,000 passengers daily from the Castro to Fisherman’s Wharf.

The agency wants the F-Market to run every five minutes between 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Increasing the frequency will reduce overcrowding and pass-ups, according to the agency.
