Public transit in San Francisco will be reduced dramatically on Saturday, May 8, 2010, when Muni service cuts take effect. Unlike the changes made last December — which included rerouting some lines and increases in service — these cuts only reduce frequency and shortened hours, but will not change routings.
All lines will have some reduction in service. Overall it’s about a 10% cut in service which at peak times on high ridership lines will mean longer wait times and more crowding while many community service lines — such as the 35 and 37 — will no longer run after 9:30 PM on weeknights.
Look for pamphlets titled “Muni Schedule Changes” in Muni Metro stations and onboard vehicles in the next week and be sure to know what’s happening on your line ahead of time.
