Muni's on-time performance hit a record high during the third quarter of last fiscal year. But it still falls short of a voter-mandated 85 percent on-time rate.

From January through March, Muni vehicles recorded a 75 percent on-time record, according to Wednesday's San Francisco Examiner.

That's a two-and-a-half percent improvement over a year ago.

It's the highest on-time mark Muni has ever achieved. An analyst for the MTA says service changes that took effect in December made the bus and train system more efficient.
