A San Francisco community group is trying to push the idea of a free Muni system.

On Monday, the group called "Power" will ask riders at Mission and Geneva whether they would like Muni to be free. They plan to display the results in two large jars marked "Yes" and "No."

Power members say thousands of San Franciscans, especially low-income families and students, rely on public transit but cannot afford recent fare increases .
