More on T-Third and Muni Metro

April 13th, 2007

T-ThirdFriday’s Chronicle has an update on the T-Third / Muni Metro story. Muni is prioritizing I-280 traffic ahead of transit riders:

Officials have decided not to use a special traffic-signaling system that gives streetcars priority to move through the Fourth and King intersection. They fear that would create a major tie-up for vehicles heading off of and onto Interstate 280 down the block, said Muni spokeswoman Maggie Lynch.

But I-280 traffic or not, are the efforts to speed the trains through Fourth and King, Embarcadero, Castro, etc. making a difference? Comment here.

If you’re planning to ride, check NextMuni before you go to your stop.
