(This has been updated to add a third endangered bus line) The San Francisco Chronicle reported today that, due to the extreme financial crisis precipitated by the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting decline in Muni ridership, up to 20 of the least-used bus lines might be scrapped as soon as this summer. Those include the 35-Eureka, […]
The 44-O’Shaughnessy has the dubious distinction of falling within MUNI’s top ten routes experiencing delays for various reasons. Muni will make three more improvements over the next few months at two locations along the 44 O’Shaughnessy route. Read this post from the San Francisco Standard to find out why and what is being done […]

This project is focused on accessibility improvements to assist J Church customers transferring at Market Street and Duboce Avenue. Learn more about the project and how to make your voice heard at the SFMTA J Church Transfer Improvements webpage.
MUNI rail service will resume in August, but the J Church will stop at Market Street, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. The shortened route is meant to speed service in the tunnel and above ground, as explained on the website and excerpted here: Our subway system moves our highest volumes of […]
The inefficiency and unreliability of the J-Church has commuters up in arms. Supervisor Mandelman has been working with SFMTA and the community –Upper Noe Neighbors had an open house November 18 — to work out solutions to the problem-riddled Muni line. Read about it here.
Upper Noe Neighbors will host a second open house regarding changes to the J Church on Monday, November 18, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Upper Noe Rec Center, 295 Day Street. Attendees will be able to view project information stations hosted by project staff and provide feedback on proposed improvements for the J […]
The best and worst on-time performing Muni bus lines, ranked Last week Curbed SF examined SFMTA’s latest data dump about Muni light rail’s on-time performance—or rather, its lack thereof. By comparison, Muni bus service is far more reliable than its trains. And yet, not a single bus line in the city is even close to Muni’s stated […]
On a fairly typical late Tuesday morning in Glen Park, a huge truck full of pet chow made its delivery to Critter Fritters. How it managed to make its way onto Chenery Street wasn’t captured in a photo, unfortunately. It was just too much for the narrow commercial street, with parked cars on both sides (and […]
It’s worth reading the legislation Mandelman and others are introducing in the Rules Committee under the 30-day rule (see below under Mandelman Legislation). Awarding contracts without competitive bidding seems a little odd, though the rest could conceivably improve homelessness services that much more. There will be a Zoning Variance Hearing Wednesday, January 23, 9:30 […]
The SFMTA and SF Public Works will host a community meeting regarding the re-grading of Miguel Street (at Chenery) on Tuesday, September 11, at 6:30 p.m., at the Glen Canyon Recreation Center in Room 2. The Glen Park Association Transportation Committee has been working with neighbors and the city to get information on this process, […]
SFMTA and SFPW are sponsoring a meeting about the regrading of Miguel Street. Traffic problems have been exacerbated by the route of the 35 Eureka bus line on Miguel, which has a very steep grade with abrupt changes. Residents have voiced concern about the situation for quite some time. Tuesday, July 31 6:30 – 7:30 […]
Here’s an article that debunks received wisdom about “distracted walking.” The results of a study appear to exonerate distracted pedestrians as the cause of vehicular accidents, but caution against complacency. https://www.curbed.com/2018/6/21/17477026/distracted-walking-pedestrian-deaths-crosswalk

These service improvements include: Larger buses for more elbow room Increased number of buses to decrease bus […]
