Passing of board member Daniel Murphy

January 7th, 2022

We are sadden to write of the passing of our vice-chair Daniel Murphy.

As vice chair of Rescue Muni, he co-authored 1999 Prop E which founded the SFMTA. He chaired the SFMTA CAC for many years and pressed for a fact-based approach to improving service for SF transit riders. He spend hundreds of hours presenting findings and issues directly to the SFMTA board every month. He had an intelligent sense of humor that made people listen to his thoughts and ideas on transportation advocacy.

Daniel’s passing is a loss for Rescue Muni and he will be missed. His contributions to San Francisco were incredible and will never be forgotten.
