Muni Forward

Muni Forward aims to make getting around San Francisco more reliable and safer. Through improvements to Muni service and transit projects, Muni Forward makes upgrades where they are needed most to provide excellent transit service.

For more information about Muni Forward, click here. The full Muni Forward Implementation Workbook is located here.

Service Improvements:

Providing a whole new level of more frequent and reliable service, Muni Forward’s implementation and expansion of the Muni Rapid Network of core routes serves nearly 70 percent of all Muni customers. Additionally, service improvements are helping to reduce crowding and improve system-wide neighborhood connectivity.

As Muni replaces and expands its fleet of buses, light rail vehicles and paratransit vans, it will go from having the oldest fleet in the nation to the newest -- and one of the greenest -- by 2019.

Transit Priority Projects:

On 40 miles of San Francisco streets, Muni Forward improvements that prioritize transit riders are on the way. These Transit Priority Projects help to improve reliability and increase the safety and comfort of customers on Muni’s most heavily used routes by addressing the root causes of delay.

Projects feature street design changes such as transit-only lanes, new traffic signals that keep the light green for Muni, consolidating some closely spaced stops and adding safety improvements for people walking.
