30×30: The Rapid Rider Network

30×30 our vision of a network of rapid transit lines that run end-to-end in 30 minutes by 2030. This network would connect every neighborhood with frequent, rapid Muni service.

To achieve this vision, we’re organizing riders to speak up for transit-first improvements on the street. We need to speak up for the routes we want to see as part of this network.

 

Local Funding

SFMTA has been facing a structural deficit for years, in large part because expenses grow far faster than revenues. Underfunding has led to crumbling infrastructure, causing breakdowns that strand riders. Equipment that’s out of date is also more expensive to try to maintain, compounding Muni’s problems. Underfunding has also led to staffing shortages, meaning SFMTA hasn’t kept up with hiring and training the people we need to keep Muni running.

Join our members’ Working Group to explore where we can find – and fight for – new funding sources to bring us the transit system we need.

Regional Policy

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTC) sets transportation policy for the 9 county Bay Area, and distributes funding to the 27 or so transit agencies around the bay. The system is opaque and isn’t responsive to riders. 

Our members’ Regional Policy Working Group will help define our regional agenda. The goal of this group is to raise the voice of riders in San Francisco at the MTC: How can we allocate regional funds to best serve riders? What are our priorities around regional fare and service integration? How do we address uneven ridership and representation across the region?

Reaching Riders

Our Community Organizing team has been focusing primarily in Districts 6, 9, 10, and 11. We’re meeting with community and neighborhood groups to talk about transit and learn about people’s biggest concerns. We’re getting out on the streets and talking to riders directly, to get them talking and thinking about how to improve their ride.

We’re also working in schools through the Spare the Air Youth program of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

As more people get vaccinated and we can move around more, we’d love to have your help talking to riders at farmers’ markets, Sunday Streets, and busy transit locations. Stay tuned!
