Daly: Muni buses nasty and you want to lay off cleaners? 

The latest camerawork of Supervisor Chris Daly, apparently now a documentarian, could very well be a horror flick.

Daly exhibited video footage of the interiors of Muni buses in a transit agency yard, presumably after the buses had completed their runs, at the Board of Supervisors' Budget and Finance Committee on Wednesday.

The images weren’t pretty: Strange liquids, dirty syringes, graffiti, a chicken bone – you name it. If it’s something that grosses you out, it was on the seats, floors, windows and so on.

Daly said he showed the footage publicly to show what Muni cleaners are up against in their daily jobs. He fears there will be fewer cleaners to wipe up the mess if the Municipal Transportation Agency goes ahead with planned layoffs to help close its budget deficit.

Fellow Supervisors John Avalos and David Campos and State Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, are also protesting the layoffs.

“We are taking these cuts without aggressively pursuing revenue alternatives in the near term,” Daly said at Wednesday’s meeting.

On the car cleaners, MTA spokesman Judson True said the agency can’t do much about stopping riders from making a mess, but will not put out vehicles that are not clean.
