First of two hearings on Muni budget to take place this Saturday 

The first of two chances for residents to sound off on Muni’s proposals to raise fares and reduce service will take place this Saturday at the agency’s headquarters.

Facing a $16.9 million mid-year deficit, the agency has incurred the wrath of seniors and disabled people regarding a revenue-generating proposal to double discounted Fast Pass prices from $15 to $30, and a cost-saving measure to reduce transit service by 10 percent has pretty much ticked off everyone else.

The agency’s headquarters at One South Van Ness Avenue will provide a venue for angry citizens on Saturday morning, with a public hearing on the budget scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon. The meeting will take place at the second floor atrium.

A second hearing is scheduled for the following Tuesday, at the same location. That meeting will last from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
