We’re fighting for public transit that works

We need a public transit system that is fast, reliable, and easy to use. We need a system that connects every neighborhood in the city, so people everywhere can access all that San Francisco has to offer. Close to 250,000 people rely on Muni every day, and many more will need to count on transit if we are to hit our climate and sustainability goals. Join our movement to change the future of public transit in San Francisco.

Our Impact

Let’s Keep Winning in 2022!

We only win with your support. We’re funded by a combination of private grants, corporate sponsorships, and most importantly: members! In addition to giving us the political clout we need to make a difference, members provide over 25% of our budget. Those are funds we can use immediately where they’re most needed, like to develop campaigns to bring back Muni routes or to fight for the funding Muni needs.

It’s Past Time to Fund Muni

It’s Past Time to Fund Muni

This fall, San Franciscans are being asked to make difficult decisions regarding Muni. Choices around restoring routes versus adding frequency provide no clear win for riders. While discussions about how to distribute limited resources to restore Muni service are important, addressing Muni’s severe financial deficit must be at the core of any solution that creates a more reliable, accessible and world class transit system for riders.
