Muni fares resume today

May 1st, 2007

On Monday, Gov. Schwarzenegger authorized emergency funds for Bay Area transit agencies, including Muni, to operate fare-free in the wake of the literal meltdown in the Macarthur Maze. Those funds covered only one day of service, however, so Muni fares resume as normal today. Replacing the Dali-esque melted freeway will, according to news reports, take somewhere between eight weeks and infinity. Apparently you can’t buy steel freeway girders at Home Depot. Who knew?

So don’t leave home today without your Fast Pass or your buck-fifty.
