San Francisco Civil Grand Jury Says Muni Central Subway Plan Needs to be Trashed
BREAKING NEWS– The San Francisco Civil Grand Jury released a report this morning trashing Muni’s current plan for the Central Subway project. The Central Subway plan would extend rail service to Chinatown, and has received backing from many San Francisco officials. The title of the Grand Jury report says it all-“Central Subway: Too much money for too little benefit.”
The Civil Grand Jury determined that the project needs to be redesigned. The Civil Grand Jury worried that the line would exacerbate Muni’s deficit, maintenance resources, and on-time performance rates. The grand jury also criticized the proposed rail line route, stating that the line could better serve both the Financial District as well as Chinatown if redesigned.
