Muni shows off first light-rail vehicle fixed with stimulus cash 

The first Muni light-rail vehicle repaired with the help of federal stimulus funds will be unveiled Thursday.

Over 140 of Muni’s light-rail vehicles, which are used on the agency’s six Metro lines, are scheduled to be repaired by a $56 million agency program. Of that total, $9 million comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The federal funds will help provide for upgrades aimed at improving safety, reliability and maintenance standards on the vehicles.

Nathaniel Ford, executive director of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which operates Muni, will hold a press conference Thursday at 11:30 a.m. to show off the first light-rail vehicle repaired by the program. The gathering will take place on The Embarcadero, between Mission and Market streets.
