Volunteers set to inform public on Muni changes

With widespread service changes looming, Muni is increasing its efforts to get the word out to the public.

Starting Tuesday afternoon, hundreds of volunteers, clad in bright orange caps and vests, will flock to various transit stops to disseminate information about the December 5 service changes, which constitute the biggest shakeup of Muni’s operating schedule in 30 years.

The volunteers will hand out information pamphlets, answer questions, and provide alternate route suggestions to curious passengers, according to Debra Johnson, the Municipal Transportation Agency’s director of external affairs.

Some lines, including the 5-Fulton and the 38-Geary, will benefit from service increases, but many routes will see their service cut, including six lines that will be eliminated all together.
