Chronicle: Park service wants F-line extension

Rescue Muni supports the extension of the F-line through the Marina and into Fort Mason. The National Park Service agrees, and has released a draft environmental impact statement for the extension, hoping to launch time to carry passengers for America’s Cup in 2013. Fort Mason attracts 1.7m visitors a year, who mostly travel by car. Funding for the project is not clear, but would not come from Muni’s operating budget, according to MTA’s spokesman Paul Rose.
