Muni to Get $45M State Grant to Buy New Light-Rail Cars

Muni to Get $45MState transportation officials have awarded San Francisco $45 Million in funds to help improve SF’s Muni system. It will replace and expand the current light rail vehicles, which would increase efficiencies by shortening travel times, and would also keep the system in a state of good repair.

The grant, awarded by the California State Transportation Agency from cap-and-trade funds, will pay for 10 of 64 new trains the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency plans to purchase to expand its light rail fleet, officials said.
