What was also left out of the proposed MTA Budget was the need to expand the size of the MUNI fleet. Our city has a growing population and ridership, and MTA wants to keep the same number of vehicles to serve a growing need. That is why buses are crowded and often switched back to accommodate greater numbers of riders. Instead of expanding the fleet, money is thrown at projects like the Central Subway which will bear useless fruit. This is supposed to be a Transit First city which the Transit Effectiveness Project subverts with its elimination and alteration of bus stops and routes to the detriment of the elderly and disabled.
