Muni’s on time rate nudges up Q4 2011

April 2nd, 2012

Muni’s on time rate was slightly more timely than usual, now 71.7% for 2011 Q4 compared to Q3’s 71.1%. This ratio continues to fall short of the voter mandated 85% on time rate from 1999’s Prop E. The record for best on time rate based on Prop E’s measurement was set in July 2010: 75%.

All aboard by any door

March 19th, 2012

Starting July 1, Muni will legalize all door boarding on buses. Thanks to Clipper, all door boarding will be a practical solution and reduce boarding times further. A 1 mph increase in Muni’s operating speed could save the SFMTA $76m a year.

N-Judah rail service offline for 6 weekends

February 10th, 2012

Starting Feb 24th, the N-Judah line will have bus service substitution for 6 weekends while rail and rail beds are replaced and upgraded along Carl Street and at Church and Duboce streets. J service will also be impacted. This is part of a long list of rail improvements that the SFMTA has been working on. A few weeks ago, the cross rails at Church and Market were replaced.

J-Church dead last among LRV lines (again)

May 6th, 2009

J ChurchThe service standards reports (pdf) are out, and once again the J-Church has the lowest on-time performance of any rail line in San Francisco (64.9% in FY 2009). Supervisor Bevan Dufty, who represents the area served by the J, has requested a Controller’s audit.

Overall on-time performance was up the last quarter, to 72.7% (page 4 of pdf). Muni has never come close to the 85% on-time service mandated by Proposition E in 1999.

Muni on time reliability up to 72%

March 3rd, 2009

SFMTAToday the SFMTA will publish service standards results showing improved on-time performance, according to the Chronicle. On time performance has improved to over 72%, up 3 percentage points from last quarter, but still far short of the 85% on time required by the voters in Proposition E passed ten years ago.

The report will be discussed at today’s SFMTA Board meeting.
