New study will look at alternatives to public transit 

With Muni cutting back service by 10 percent in May, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (TA) will undergo a study to determine what transportation options are available in The City outside the traditional modes of public transit.

The study will offer up analyses of possible alternative transportation models in certain parts of The City that are particularly underserved, as well as the potential for public regulation and management of these practices. It will also take into consideration a new pilot program that allows taxi medallions to be sold for $250,000.

Requested by Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, the report is expected to be completed by May. An overview of the study will be presented tomorrow at the Plans and Programs Committee of the TA, a local planning and financing agency that manages The City’s transportation tax.
