More Muni Money

At the end of June, San Francisco welcomed $41 million in funding from the state for the city’s Muni system. The money comes from California’s Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program, which is funded by cap-and-trade auction fees.

“This allows us to move forward with a major expansion of Muni’s fleet, with the purchase of additional light rail vehicles, replacing the entire fleet with new, state of the art Siemens vehicles,” said Mayor Ed Lee. “This investment from the cap-and-trade program will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help take vehicles off congested streets, while keeping San Francisco’s transportation system one of the most diverse and greenest transit fleets in the nation.”
