If a study into extending Muni’s F-Line service to Fort Mason moves forward, it will do so without any funding from The City’s transportation tax dollars.
On Tuesday, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, the city body governed by the Board of Supervisors, elected to move forward with a five-year planning outline that does not include any funding allotment for studying the F-Line extension. The TA manages The City’s transportation tax dollars.
Originally, $500,000 had been set aside for the F-Line study as part of the TA’s five-year prioritization program, but due to concerns raised by Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier, the funding was dropped.
The National Park Service, which is conducting the study alongside Muni, has posted $1.5 million for the report, but still needs $500,000 to complete it — a funding gap that was supposed to be provided by local sources.
