A cable car at California and Market Streets.

Muni is an integral part of public transit throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, operating 365 days a year and connecting with regional services such as Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), SamTrans and AC Transit. Many weekday riders are commuters, as the daytime weekday population in San Francisco exceeds its normal residential population. Muni shares some metro stations with BART, which can lead to confusion amongst visitors. Travelers can connect to San Francisco International Airport and Oakland International Airport via BART.

The Muni network consists of the following lines:

Selected and/or alternate routes operate 24 hours a day; during the overnight hours (between 1:30 am and 5:30 am), most parts of the city are connected by "owl" buses that usually operate with 30 minute headways.

Muni offers more frequent service than most other public transit agencies in the United States.[citation needed] Most bus lines are scheduled to operate every 5 to 15 minute headways during peak hours, every 5 to 20 minutes mid-days, about every 10 to 20 minutes from 9 pm to midnight, and roughly every half hour for the late night "owl" routes. On weekends most Muni bus lines are scheduled to run every 10 to 20 minutes. However, complaints of unreliability, especially on less-often-served lines and older (pre-battery backup) trolleybus lines, are a system-wide problem.

All Muni lines run roughly inside San Francisco city limits, with the exception of several lines that serve some locations in the northern part of neighboring Daly City, and the 76-Marin Headlands line to the Marin Headlands area, a popular hiking and biking destination, on Sundays and various holidays. Most intercity connections are provided by BART and Caltrain heavy rail, AC Transit buses at the Transbay Terminal and Golden Gate Transit and SamTrans downtown. Limited stop bus lines run along the most congested routes, and stop only at the major intersections and transfer points along the way, covering most or all of the route and not deviating from it. Limited buses on most lines run in both directions at commute times, and some run on weekends as well. On trolleybus lines, the limited buses are diesel, allowing them to pass local buses.

Name

Muni is short for the "Municipal" in "San Francisco Municipal Railway" and is not an acronym; thus, when it is written in plain text, only Muni (not MUNI) is correct. However, many San Franciscans, including some of those who work for Muni, write it MUNI, and so this has become widely accepted. The Muni Metro is often called "the train" or "the streetcar" along with many others.


"Muni" in popular usage usually refers to both the streetcars and the buses as in "Do you know where the nearest Muni stop/station is?" Some natives believe it is a usage error to refer to Muni as "the Muni"; when used, it generally refers to the Muni Metro.


Some people use the term streetcar or trolley for cable car or vice versa. The terms actually have distinct meanings; if one asks a driver for directions to the trolley when one really wants a cable car, one may receive the wrong directions. There have also been observed uses of the term bus for light rail vehicle, indicating that the term bus may be becoming generic in current local usage. a historic postcard showing electric trolley-powered streetcars in Richmond, Virginia, where Frank J. Sprague successfully demonstrated his new system on the hills in 1888 A streetcar is a railway vehicle designed to carry passengers on tracks, usually laid in city streets. ...

The F Market & Wharves line is referred to by Muni as a "historic streetcar line" rather than as a "heritage railway." One could reasonably argue that the cable cars are also a "heritage railway." The F Market & Wharves line is one of several light rail lines in San Francisco, California. ...


Route names

All Muni routes, except the cable cars, have two parts to the name, and are most often referred to by both. For example, the "1-California." The word(s) on the end refer, in general, to the street encompassing the plurality of the line. This does not mean that the line runs solely on that street (e.g., the 1-California runs on Sacramento and Clay Streets east of Pacific Heights). Bus and trolleybus lines have number designations, rail lines have letters and the three cable car lines are typically referred to by name only (Powell/Mason, Powell/Hyde and California). However, Muni maps abbreviate the cable route names to PM, PH and C, and they are given route numbers like the buses for use within Muni operations, 59, 60 and 61, respectively. Direction on bus, trolleybus, and rail lines is identified as "inbound" or "outbound". Generally speaking, the inbound direction is toward downtown and the outbound direction is away from downtown. Inbound and outbound directions for crosstown and neighborhood lines is less intuitive. The sidewalk on Fillmore Street, looking north from Bush Street. ...


Express bus lines run to downtown in the morning and from downtown in the evening, with the exception of the 9X Bayshore Express. All express bus lines have an "X" suffix to the numeric part of the line name, to identify it as an express route (except for the 88-BART Shuttle, which has a short express portion; nevertheless, it is identified on the official Muni Map in red, the express color). If there is an additional letter before the "X," it identifies the location of the local zone, in decreasing distance from downtown (i.e., "B" will have its local stops and terminus closer to downtown than "A"). Thus, the 1BX-California "B" Express has a local stop zone along California Street in Pacific Heights and Inner Richmond, farther east than the 1AX-California "A" Express's Outer Richmond local zone. All limited bus lines have the one-letter suffix "L" added to the numeric part of the line name as well as the suffix "Limited" to the end of the name. For example, the 38L-Geary Limited follows the same route as the 38 Geary, but with more widely spaced stops.

Fares

Fares are $1.50 for adults and $0.50 for seniors over 65, youth aged 5-17, and disabled persons. Fares were increased in 2003 in the face of municipal and state budget cuts, and again in 2005. Proof-of-payment (POP) is handled through a transfer slip, either a piece of newsprint-like paper, torn to indicate expiration time (buses and streetcar) or machine-printed on thicker tag stock at subway stations and a few outdoor stops such as the one at San Francisco State University, any of which can be checked by fare inspectors. These transfer receipts allow travel on any MUNI vehicle for at least 90 minutes but no more than 2 hours from the time of issue. Frequent riders can get a monthly pass for $45 for adults ("Fast Pass"), $35 for low income residents [3], or $10 for youth and seniors. Persons with disabilities who have obtained a Regional Transit Connection discount card may purchase a $10 disabled monthly sticker. Fast Passes are valid on all Muni lines, including cable cars, as well as on BART rides entirely inside San Francisco (between Embarcadero and Balboa Park). Other passes and stickers are valid on all Muni lines, including cable cars, but not on BART (with the exception of BART-Plus[4] ticket types).

Express lines only run during peak hours, with the sole exception of the 9X; during mornings they run towards downtown (the Financial District) and during the evening they run away from downtown. All express lines have an "X", "AX", or "BX" following the line's number. Longer lines are divided into A and B Expresses. The B Express line is shorter and has stops that are closer to downtown, while the A Express makes stops further away from downtown and will make few or no stops in the area where the B Express stops.

The 14, 28, 38, and 71 lines all have buses providing limited service along their routes. They make fewer stops than the standard line in order to provide for faster travel, but stops are interspersed at greater intervals along the entire line (as opposed to the expresses, which make frequent local stops near the origin and destination, but not in the middle). All limited buses have an "L" following the line's number. The 14L and 38L run all day long and on weekends, unlike most express buses.


Owl service runs from 1 am to 5 am.

Muni operates about 1,000 vehicles: diesel, electric, and hybrid electric transit buses, light rail vehicles known as Muni Metro streetcars that run both under and above ground, PCC streetcars running on the F Market heritage line, and the San Francisco cable car system which is a tourist icon for the city. Many buses are diesel-powered, but more than 300 are zero-emissions trolleybuses powered by overhead electrical wires. The electricity to run all of Muni's trolleybuses and streetcars comes from the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park.

History

Muni has its origins in the period following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Up until then the city had been served by a number of commercial horsecar, cable car and electric streetcar operators. Many of these had been amalgamated into the United Railroads of San Francisco (URR) company. However the city acquired the still-independent cable car operator Geary Street, Park & Ocean Railway and converted the line into an electric streetcar line in 1912.

Muni soon started on a large building program.

These improvements plunged Muni into direct competition with the URR on the entire length of Market Street. The two operators each operated their own pair of rail tracks down that thoroughfare, which came to be known as the "roar of the four."

In 1970, construction began on the Muni Metro system below Market street, the same time when Muni was having a severe diesel bus crisis. This crisis was resolved in 1999 with 45 NABI buses from AC Transit.[10]. In 1982, the Cable car system was shut down for 18 months for rebuilding, and there was massive line reorganizations due to diesel bus issues. During the late 1990s, with aging equipment and allegedly poor management, Muni developed a reputation for declining service. San Francisco residents responded in 1996 by organizing Rescue Muni, a transit riders association. Muni's previous Boeing-Vertol streetcars were criticized as being unreliable, and were replaced by newer Italian Breda streetcars. Muni's previous non-ADA compliant Flyer trolleybuses were replaced with ETI Skoda[11] trolleybuses in the early 2000s; the trolleybus manufacturer is now defunct.[12], although some Flyer buses are being retained by Muni for historical reasons.[13] Muni's current livery consists of a silver/red motif.

A light rail vehicle on the T Third Street line. The T line, the sixth Muni Metro line, opened on April 7, 2007.

Construction on a sixth light rail line from the Caltrain Depot to Visitacion Valley (and Bayview/Hunters Point) was completed in December 2006. The new line, named the T Third Street, consists of 19 new high-platform stations at street-level, including at least one within walking distance of Monster Park. The line was supposed to connect the Bayshore Caltrain station with light rail, but Caltrain failed to notify Muni of a pending reconfiguration to the Bayshore station, which calls for a modification to the new light rail line. This will force the light rail line to terminate at Sunnydale Avenue for a few years, but it is hoped that the new Muni line will eventually connect to the Bayshore station.[16][17] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 600 pixelsFull resolution‎ (2,272 × 1,704 pixels, file size: 1. ...

A further underground expansion for the T-line is being planned. Dubbed the Central Subway, four proposed new underground stations at Moscone Center, Market Street and Stockton Street, Union Square, and Chinatown are being studied for a possible target date of 2016. A future extension into North Beach and Fisherman's Wharf or to the Marina District and The Presidio may be built in a third phase. This project is expected to cost approximately USD $1.4 billion.[18]. A very critical problem with the proposed subway is that the stations will be much narrower and shorter in comparison to existing Muni Metro stations on Market Street; ridership projections reveal that the line will run at near capacity from the start of operations with little or no ability to increase capacity. Some activists have criticized these long-term plans as catering to the needs of visitors at the expense of city residents, asserting that Muni's resources would be better spent on a seventh light rail line running along (or under) Geary Boulevard into the densely populated Richmond District. Currently, a bus rapid transit ("BRT") line is being planned for Geary Boulevard, possibly as a precursor to a light rail line.

Expected smaller changes to service include rerouting the 22 Fillmore and extending either the 30 Stockton or 45 Union-Stockton into Mission Bay when the area becomes developed, and a new E Embarcadero historic streetcar line is expected to begin operation along the Embarcadero from Fisherman's Wharf to the Caltrain station at 4th and King Streets in 2007, with a possible future extension into Mission Bay.

Additionally, there are plans to expand trolleybus service in several parts of the city. Several extensions to existing trolleybus lines are planned, including 14 Mission service to the Daly City BART station, 6 Parnassus service to West Portal Station, 33 Stanyan service across Potrero Hill to Third Street, 45 Union-Stockton service to the Letterman Digital Arts Center in the Presidio and 24 Divisadero service into the former Hunters Point shipyard. Other expansion plans include electrification of some diesel bus lines, with the most likely lines for conversion being the 9 San Bruno, 10 Townsend and 47 Van Ness. Electrification of the 10 Townsend line would likely be joined by an extension of the line across Potrero Hill to San Francisco General Hospital. Other lines that may be electrified are the 2 Clement, 27 Bryant, 43 Masonic and 71 Haight-Noriega.[19] Platforms One Island, One Side Parking Monthly Reserved, Daily ($2), Extended Weekend, Midday ($2), Carpool ($2) Bicycle facilities 20 Lockers Other information Opened November 3, 1973 Accessible Daly City Station is a Bay Area Rapid Transit station located in the northern part of Daly City, California. ...

Overall, the Muni system is not expanding. However, the average speed of Muni vehicles has been slowly declining over the years due to increasing vehicular congestion.[citation needed] Therefore, Muni has launched plans to make its transit vehicles move faster through the city. The Transit Effectiveness Project launched in May 2006 to take a comprehensive look at the entire Muni system to see where service can be improved or streamlined to provide faster and more reliable service. 25 years have passed since the last comprehensive review and travel patterns have changed, traffic congestion has increased, operating costs have risen and on-time performance has dropped. Automatic passenger counters will help to provide an accurate picture of where riders get on and off. In addition, bus rapid transit is currently being proposed on the Geary and Van Ness corridors. This article is about high-capacity bus transit systems. ...
