Muni route 76 has been expanded to include Saturdays and Sundays, and will be renamed the 76X Marin Headlands Express, the trasportation agency said. The route will begin at the Montgomery BART station in San Francisco and make limited stops in the city.

“This is an exciting advancement for our commitment to reducing the carbon impact of these parks on the Bay Area, and our dedication to serving the public,” Golden Gate National Recreation Area superintendent Frank Dean said in a release.

As part of limiting the stops in San Francisco, the 76X discontinues the portion of the route south of Market Street to Caltrain to address reliability issues, the agency said.
The 76X is a 24-month pilot program.

    The 76X regularly ran on weekends during the 1980s. The driver was also on the 31AX route until his retirement. He made gobs of OT by having a M-F split shift and did the 76X totally as OT. Managed to buy several apartment buildings with the OT money. He was also a really nice guy and would hold his bus if he saw one of his regulars on their way to the bus stop.
