San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency officials today unveiled the design for new Muni Metro platform display signs and are asking for the public’s feedback on how they look.

The signs, which are larger than the current ones and will offer a full-color display of real-time arrival information, are scheduled to go up at the stations in 2014, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said.

Examples of the signs are available at the agency’s website at

Muni officials will also be at various stations early next month to discuss the changes with passengers.

The officials will be at the Castro Station on June 4, the Embarcadero Station on June 5, the Powell Station on June 6, the Church Station on June 7, and the West Portal Station on June 8. Passengers can also pick up a comment card at these locations and return it to a station agent.

“The SFMTA is committed to improving our customers’ experience and this is one more tool to help further that goal,” Ed Reiskin, the agency’s director of transportation, said in a statement.

“From larger screens to clearer, more colorful displays, we feel the new design is an improvement.”
