Part time drivers hit the streets

Starting today, the SFMTA is using part time drivers to fill routes. Under negotiation under 2010’s Prop. G and Muni’s union, the SFMTA can hire part time drivers even when full time driver positions are available.  The agency can expect to save nearly $900,000 with this move, hiring 25 part timers total. Riders can expect to see additional service for rush hour service on lines such as the 1-California, the 8-Bayshore and the 31-Balboa express.
