San Francisco Municipal Railway

The San Francisco Municipal Railway is the public transit system for the city and county of San Francisco, California. In 2018, Muni served 46.7 square miles with an operating budget of about $1.2 billion. In ridership terms, Muni is the seventh largest transit system in the United States, with 210,848,310 rides in 2006 and the second largest in California behind Metro in Los Angeles. With a fleet average speed of 8.1 mph, it is the slowest major urban transit system in America and one of the most expensive to operate, costing $19.21 per mile per bus and $24.37 per mile per train. However, it has more boardings per mile and more vehicles in operation than similar transit agencies. Muni is an integral part of public transit in the city of San Francisco, operating 365 days a year and connecting with regional transportation services, such as Bay Area Rapid Transit, SamTrans, Golden Gate Transit, AC Transit, its network consists of 54 bus lines, 17 trolley bus lines, 7 light rail lines that operate above ground and in the city's lone subway tube, 3 cable car lines, 2 heritage streetcar lines, the E Embarcadero and F Market.

Many weekday riders are commuters, as the daytime weekday population in San Francisco exceeds its normal residential population. Muni shares four Metro stations with BART. Most bus lines are scheduled to operate every five to fifteen minutes during peak hours, every five to twenty minutes middays, about every ten to twenty minutes from 9 pm to midnight, every half-hour for the late night "owl" routes. On weekends, most Muni bus lines are scheduled to run every ten to twenty minutes. However, complaints of unreliability on less-often-served lines and older trolleybus lines, are a system-wide problem. Muni has had some difficulty meeting a stated goal of 85% voter-demanded on-time service. All Muni lines run inside San Francisco city limits, with the exception of several lines serving locations in the northern part of neighboring Daly City, the 76X Marin Headlands Express line to the Marin Headlands area on weekends and major holidays. Most intercity connections are provided by BART and Caltrain heavy rail, AC Transit buses at the Transbay Terminal, Golden Gate Transit and SamTrans downtown.

Bus and car stops throughout the city vary from Metro stations with raised platforms in the subway and at the more used surface stops, to small shelters to signposts to a yellow stripe on a utility pole or on the road surface. 70% of stops are spaced closer than recommended range of 800–1,000 feet apart. Muni is not an acronym; the Muni metro is called "the train" or "the streetcar." Most San Francisco natives use'Muni'. The E Embarcadero and F Market & Wharves lines are referred to by Muni as a "historic streetcar line" rather than as a "heritage railway."Muni's logo is a stylized, trademarked "worm" version of the word muni. This logo was designed by San Francisco-based graphic designer Walter Landor in the mid-1970s. Bus and trolleybus lines have number designations, rail lines have letters and the three cable car lines are referred to by name only. Except for cable cars, cash fares are $3.00 for adults. Clipper card and MuniMobile fares are $2.50 for adults and $1.25 for seniors and people with disabilities.

Proof-of-payment, which fare inspectors may demand at any time, is either a Clipper card, MuniMobile, Muni Passport, or paper transfer. One fare entitles a rider to unlimited vehicle transfers for the next 120 minutes. Cable cars are $8 one way, with no transfers, unless the rider has a Muni Passport or a Muni monthly pass; as of July 2019 monthly passes cost $81 for adults, $40 for low-income residents, or $40 for youth and the disabled. Passes are valid on all Muni lines—including cable cars—and the $98 adult pass allows BART transit within San Francisco. Other passes and stickers are valid on all Muni lines, including cable cars, but not on BART. Cable car fare is $8 per trip, with no transfers accepted. "Passports" are folding scratch-off passes that can be purchased by mail, or at various places throughout the city. As of September 2018, Passports cost $23 for a 1-day pass, $34 for a 3-day pass, or $45 for a 7-day pass, with discounts for using Clipper card or MuniMobile. Muni has implemented a dual-mode smart card payment system known as Clipper.

The transponders have been in use since at least 2004, replaced most paper monthly passes in 2010. BART, Golden Gate Transit, VTA, AC Transit, SamTrans, SMART and San Francisco Bay Ferry utilize the Clipper system. Fares can be paid with a mobile app called MuniMobile since 2015; the app is developed by moovel, who have built mobile ticketing apps for a number of other transit agencies such as Caltrain and TriMet. The app is planned to be deployed until around 2021 when the next generation Clipper card mobile app is planned to launch and replace agency-specific ticketing apps. Muni operates 14 express lines, 5 Rapid lines, 12 Owl lines, which run between
