According to the SFMTA’s weekly Traffic and Transit alert:
Due to a reduction in ridership during the spring breaks for San Francisco State University and the San Francisco Unified School District, Monday, March 25 to Friday, March 29, Muni will implement minor daytime frequency adjustments. In addition, several commute routes will see permanent minor adjustments to provide greater efficiency for those schedules.
The SFMTA Strategic Plan calls for the Agency to make limited schedule adjustments during seasonal ridership lulls in order to be more efficient with public funds. The changes being implemented March 25 to 29 will be minor and reduce employee overtime and vehicle maintenance for the week—saving the Agency approximately $45,000. The first implementation of such changes made in December matched the reduced demand and saved the Agency $275,000. Similar schedule changes may also be put in place during the summer.
