SF Re-Ups For Shuttle Program

The SFMTA board will change the corporate commuter shuttle program, after agreeing to changes supported by the Board of Supervisors that will keep the program going for at least another year. The shuttles, which carry more than 8,000 passengers each day, are credited with taking thousands of cars off the roads but are criticized for their impact on Muni bus stops. The new plan will have the commuter buses use hubs instead of city bus stops, which would relieve the congestion at bus stops but critics fear could also deter commuters from using the shuttles and instead driving to work, adding to congestion on city streets and local highways.
