Release date: May 3, 2012
*** Press Release ***
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which oversees all transportation in the city, including the Municipal Railway (Muni), today reminds customers of the citywide workshop on Saturday, May 5 that will cover transit travel time proposals for all eight corridors in the Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP). The eight corridors include the J Church, N Judah, 5 Fulton, 8x Bayshore Express, 14 Mission, 22 Fillmore, 28 19th Avenue and 30 Stockton.
The SFMTA is hosting a total of 10 outreach workshops for the next phase of the Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP), a joint effort by the SFMTA and the City Controller’s Office that aims to transform Muni so that people can get where they want to go more quickly, reliably and safely. The SFMTA has hosted nine community workshops that reviewed the TEP travel time reduction proposals and facilitated community discussions that will inform the final recommendations. Input from community stakeholders will also shape the TEP environmental review currently underway.
“The TEP has been and will continue to be a powerful prioritizing tool for improving Muni,” said Tom Nolan, Chairman of the SFMTA Board of Directors. “Public input will be vital to this process as the TEP provides a road map for Muni’s transformation during the coming decade.”
“The good work underlying the TEP provides us with the first opportunity in a generation to systematically improve Muni service,” said Edward D. Reiskin, SFMTA Director of Transportation. “As a Transit First city, we need to be smart about how we improve transit to make it an attractive, reliable choice for San Franciscans. The TEP is a significant part of how we’ll get there.”
The TEP travel time reduction proposals covered in the workshops include various traffic engineering and transit stop treatments. When combined with other initiatives such as new and ongoing Muni Operations improvements (e.g. all-door boarding) and transit signal priority, these proposals are expected to reduce Muni travel times by 15 to 30 percent and improve service reliability.
