Coming Saturday: Muni Service Cuts

You don't have to wait long to wait long.

Starting tomorrow, May 8, Muni will initiate 10 percent service cuts in a cost-cutting measure. The agency stands to save around $4.8 million for the rest of fiscal 2010 (which ends on July 1) and $28.4 million in fiscal 2011. These cuts became inevitable when the Board of Supervisors last month spurned transit activist David Pilpel's motion that they were illegal.

What do service cuts mean for you? Well, 10 percent service cuts translates into more waiting around, and more cattle-car conditions on the trains and buses that do arrive. And if you're lucky enough to get a seat, no, that liquid is probably not water.
