Making San Francisco's Muni Faster is Easy, So Let's Do It (Video)


Sometimes Simple Solutions are Best
Our friends at StreetFilms have made a great video about San Francisco's Muni and how to make it more efficient. Basically, if you make boarding faster by using a prepaid boarding system called proof-of-payment, the whole network of buses has to spend a lot less time at each stop and the faster speeds can attract more people to transit. Low-floor buses can also help speed-up boarding. These simple lessons can also apply to many other transit systems around the world, so I hope the people in charge are seeing this (if you know someone who could make this happen, please forward this clip). We need better transit to reduce carbon emissions and clean up the air. Via StreetFilms. See also: How Cyclists and Buses Should Share the Road (Educational Video)
