The transit agency says cutting the number of stops would be one of the cheapest ways to improve on-time performance, which actually hit a record-high of just over 74 percent recently.

However, that still falls short of the 85 percent performance goal mandated by voters a decade ago.

Muni says the 30-Stockton and 1- California are among the most heavily-used routes. It says buses waste lots of time pulling in and out of stops in traffic.

Muni has more than 4,000 stops city-wide, sometimes two on the same block.
