SFMTA cleared to make cuts 

The cash-strapped San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency can move forward as planned and implement its service cuts without conducting an environmental review.

The Board of Supervisors voted 7-4 on Tuesday to reject an appeal of the Planning Department’s determination that the SFMTA, which oversees Muni, does not have to undergo the often-lengthy environmental impact report due to its declared fiscal
emergency.

The SFMTA has approved a 10 percent service reduction, set to take effect May 1, to help bridge its budget gap. The agency is facing a $19 million deficit for next fiscal year.
