Major Muni service changes to begin Saturday

December 4, 2009 9:20:27 AM PST
Starting Saturday, Muni begins a sweeping overhaul of service for nearly every bus and light rail train the agency operates. It's the first change in 30 years.

In total more than 65 percent of the Muni system will be affected.

Six routes are being eliminated while five lines will see service increases. Several others will be shortened, rerouted, or have wait times increased.

Muni is making the changes to save more than $3 million to help balance a $129 million deficit.
