muni_generic.jpgA public hearing to discuss reliability problems with the San Francisco Municipal Railway system is scheduled to take place at City Hall on Monday.

Supervisor Scott Wiener said the hearing will cover Muni’s lack of reliability, lack of adequate maintenance, and need for increased investment, according to a statement from Wiener’s office.

“Muni’s performance has deteriorated, including a 57.2% on-time rate in August, many missed runs, broken down vehicles and other problems that have undermined reliability,” Wiener said.

Monday’s meeting of the Board of Supervisors Government Accountability and Oversight Committee is scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. in City Hall Room 263.

    No better way to stifle public participation by waiting until the morning of the hearing to publicize it. Keep it up, Scott, and you’ll be mayor someday.

    This won’t actually accomplish anything, because the problem isn’t just funding, it’s institutional. Muni runs on a culture of half-assery, because honestly, they can get away with it. All the hearings in the world, and all the investigative journalism the newsroom budget allows, can’t change that fact.
