The report provides an overview of extensive inventories and evaluations of Municipal Railway (MUNI) services, and principal features of a recommended short-term improvement plan and program. The main thrust of the recommendations is aimed at more efficient use of existing public transportation resources. Recommendations include comprehensive modifications of MUNI routes and headways; a transit priority street program to facilitate transit vehicle movement on congested streets; an extension of the J streetcar line to improve operating efficiency; site plans and design criteria for a new bus maintenance facility needed to reduce operating costs; a set of basic goals, standards and criteria for MUNI service; and various management actions which would improve the quality of service. The work described represents only the first of several phases of a complete planning, operations and marketing program. (Color illustrations reproduced in black and white)
