MUNI Transportation Effectiveness Hearing 10/23

MUNI has three planning initiatives underway that directly affect the Polk Neighborhoods. The Geary Rapid Transit project is well under way. The Van Ness Rapid Transit project is in the middle stages of hearings as is the Transit Effectiveness Project.

Over the past year, the Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP) has been looking at ways to make Muni more efficient and attractive to riders. Everyone is invited to attend an upcoming community meeting to learn about the TEP's key findings and ideas and help shape the City's plans to improve Muni service.

In early 2008, there will be another series of meetings to present final recommendations.

The next community meeting in the Polk area will be: Tuesday, October 23, 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, 99 Grove St. at Polk St..

For more information, e-mail, or call (415) 701-4599. Spanish and Chinese speakers may call (415) 226-1313.

The meeting sites are wheelchair accessible. Assistive listening devices and materials in large print will be available at the meeting. To request real time captioning, a sign language interpreter or other accommodations, please call (415) 226-1313. Providing at least 72 hours advance notice will help to ensure availability.
