Public invited to weigh in on Muni Transit Effectiveness Project

Two hearings will take place next month to update the public on the environmental review process of Muni’s long-awaited, never-employed Transit Effectiveness Project.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which manages Muni, completed the TEP in 2008, the first time in a generation that the agency reviewed its service operations with the intent of changing its existing system. The TEP laid out recommendations for speeding up the most-heavily used lines and redirecting resources away from lesser-used buses.

However, recommendations from the TEP have never been fully implemented due to funding constraints, but the agency is taking an important step forward with its preparations of an environmental impact report — a state requirement for an undertaking of this size.

On Dec. 6 and 7, the EIR will be presented at a public hearing as part of the scoping process of the review. The public will get a chance to weigh in on the impacts of the TEP during those hearings, which will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the SFMTA’s headquarters on 1 South Van Ness Avenue.
