You’d think expanded transit would be good for your neighborhood. Not Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier, who yesterday moved to block a study of extending the popular historic streetcar to Fort Mason, a project that would provide much needed transit options to Marina residents and visitors alike.
This project, which Rescue Muni supports, would extend the streetcar through the Fort Mason tunnel and provide rail service to the Marina and the western half of Fisherman’s Wharf. It would also make possible a future extension of historic streetcar service to the Marina Green and possibly the Presidio, as recommended by our Service Expansion committee nine years ago.
If you disagree with Supervisor Alioto-Pier’s claim that this project is “a monster without a head” and would like to see it funded, and particularly if you live in District 2 (Marina and Pacific Heights), please write to her office!
