Chronicle: Fare Collection is up

Old cable car transferImproved fare enforcement and more people deciding to save money and stress by taking transit has boosted Muni’s bottom line, with cable cars raising the biggest slice, bringing in a whopping $14.5M, or 21% more over the last 6 months. Muni could really use the money too, with a projected $90M shortfall over the next 18 months.

Rescue Muni is monitoring the budget situation and will publish how the numbers will add up to in a future posting.
