San Francisco Muni officials are working on a smart phone app that would make it easier for people to decide what type of transportation to take.

It would provide real time information on cost, distance and travel estimates for all forms of transportation.

The app would help people see when the next taxi would be and how much it would cost, or how long it would take to drive somewhere and where there was parking.

Muni officials are talking to several private technology companies to design the app.

They hope to have it available next year.
