David Chiu calls for Muni hearing amid uncertain future of transit boss 

As Muni head Nathaniel Ford remains in the running to take a job in Washington, D.C., its uncertain who will be running the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency in the future.

Amid this uncertainty, as Ford was briefing the MTA directors in closed session about his intentions, Board of Supervisors President David Chiu called for a hearing on the transit agency, long plagued by funding shortfalls and unreliable service.

Chiu’s hearing is broadly on “the state of affairs at the MTA.”

“This is a hearing in which I am asking for the MTA to provide us with an update on their budget, on ongoing labor negotiations, on the agency’s priorities across all modes – pedestrian, bicycling, taxis and cars – as well as a report on key performance indicators such as recent customer surveys and on-time performance data from the agency’s service standards,” Chiu said.
