Muni Transit Assistance Program
About 57,000 children attend a school in the San Francisco Unified School District; and about half of them will be using Muni to get back and forth. And one way we work to make student travel safer is by using the Muni Transit Assistance Program.
Since launching in 1996, MTAP works with and trains members of the community in conflict resolution who then ride on specific routes with the purpose of diffusing and deterring any conflicts, acts of vandalism, and who assist the bus operators as needed. These individuals are part of the Security, Investigations and Enforcement Division in our agency's Sustainable Streets Division.
