City aims to quiet tour buses 

Back in March, The San Francisco Examiner was first to report that The City was exploring ways to silence tour buses, as well as address other bus-related complaints.

At Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, board President David Chiu is expected to request the city attorney to draft legislation that would prohibit the use of loud amplification speakers.

The ban is similar to a law passed in New York City earlier this year that requires tour bus operators to tell passengers about the sights through head phones, not an open-air sound system.

The legislation would also address other concerns, such as idling and parking.
