T for Trouble?
The T-Third line (live google map) is now in revenue service, but even after months of testing there are some kinks to be worked out. Have you had trouble with this line or is it an improvement on the old 15-Third bus? Also, are you running into delays on the rest of the light rail system? What should be done to move vehicles through the 4th and King intersection? Comment on our Yahoo Group.

Newsom: City Commissioners Should Ride Muni
Mayor Newsom this week urged the MTA to rescind free parking privileges for city commissioners in the Civic Center Garage and instead give them free Muni passes (usable all month). This is consistent with San Francisco's Transit First Policy. Rescue Muni applauds this idea and urges the city to go beyond this and offer all city employees transit benefits instead of free parking.

Lots of discussion this week over a suggestion by Mayor Newsom to stop charging fares on Muni: Chronicle, Chronicle again, Examiner, SFist. Any elimination of fares would require Muni to find over $100 million a year in new revenue. (Mayor Brown and then director Emilio Cruz discussed the idea back in 1996.)
