San Francisco Muni riders are getting a boost in Muni service starting this Saturday.

The Municipal Transportation Agency is increasing frequency on some of Muni’s heaviest lines and adding new amenities to transit shelters. With more than an average of 700,000 daily boardings, the transit agency said this is its biggest service increase in decades.

SFMTA Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin said as complex as it is running a transit system, it was clear what riders wanted:

“It’s really pretty simple in terms of what they want. What they’re looking for is a bus or a train that’s going to show up with reasonable level of reliability and a vehicle they can actually get on when it does show up.”…

SFBay reported earlier this month that Muni lines like the 10-Townsend, 14-Mission, 28-19th Avenue and 38-Geary will have more frequent service during the morning and evening commutes (Full list of service increases and route name changes)… (more)
