Muni riders in San Francisco can expect big changes on their route, starting this weekend.

That's when a 10 percent service reduction goes into effect system wide.

The transit agency says it will begin running trains and buses less frequently, which mean passengers can expect longer waits and more crowded buses.

The agency says the busiest routes won't be affected during the peak commute hours.

Muni says the reductions will save nearly five million dollars this fiscal year.
