Asides, Muni / SFMTA

Proposed Change to the Inbound 71L

Proposed Change to the Inbound 71L. If you ride the 71L-Haight/Noriega Limited bus inbound to downtown during morning rush hour, Muni is interested in your comments on its proposed changes to the 71L route. The changes would apply only on weekdays, between 7:00 am and 9:00 am. The proposal is to have buses avoid congestion on Page Street by traveling south on Laguna, then turning northeast on Market towards downtown — probably stopping at Market/Gough, an intermediate point along the way. (You can check out our custom 71L map to see the current configuration of stops.) If you would like to weigh in on the proposal, a public hearing is being held on Friday, April 4 at 10:00 am, in Room 416 of City Hall. In the not-unlikely event that you are unable to rush over to City Hall at 10:00 am on a weekday, you can email James Lowe from the SFMTA with your feedback. [SFMTA]



One thought on “Proposed Change to the Inbound 71L

  1. This seems like a ‘duh’ and surely any Muni driver would be able to tell Muni management, “Hey, it’s ridiculously congested let’s choose another route.”

    I understand the theory of having the public weigh in on route changes, but route changes due to congestion avoidance should not require public hearings.

    Another great reroute ‘duh’ is the 27-Bryant toward Jackson & Van Ness. When it’s heading east on Bryant between 6th and 5th Streets, the afternoon/evening Bay Bridge on-ramp backup makes this block take nearly 10 minutes.

    Would it be so bad if it snaked down 6th to Folsom, then to 5th? Or whatever 4 equivalent routes could be created? I guess we need a public hearing first.
