Safety Roadeo Winners Stand Together to Make Streets Safer

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

The entire agency came out last Saturday morning to focus on the skills that keep Muni's buses and the Go-4 vehicles used by parking control officers operating safely on our streets. Operators and parking control officers work hard to drive expertly and safely. With the traning division's support, they displayed these skills at the SFMTA's 31st Bus Roadeo.
