So Mayor Gavin Newsom has proposed looking at the possibility of making Muni totally free! This is a fantastic idea in my opinion. It would improve reliability and ridership. The big questions, of course, is where will all that lost revenue be made up, and how will they pay for the equipment and staff that will be needed to handle the increased ridership? It may not happen, but I think it's fantastic that Newsom is talking about it. More on this later.
