The head of the city's transit agency spoke about subway plans, a new fare program and the future of the K Ingleside.
San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Director of Transportation Jeffrey Tumlin gave a presentation about Muni service at a community meeting on Monday where he outlined his vision for improving service across the city and on Ocean Avenue.
Citing the decimation of the transit agency’s revenue stream by the COVID-19 pandemic, Tumlin held up the $115 million in federal funding received in March which is being used to fill more than 1,000 job vacancies for the restoration transit lines cut during 2020.
“We are still facing the worst financial crisis in our agency’s 110-year history,” Tumlin said. “Two of our three sources of revenue — transit fares, and parking fees and fines — completely collapsed.”
