The California Public Utilities Commission is weighing a decision to penalize San Francisco’s Metropolitan Transit Agency for alleged violations of key safety regulations on its light-rail system, including defective tracks and a malfunctioning automatic train control system.
I have been saying for years that MUNI has ongoing safety issues. Even though I am a San Francisco MUNI Accident Attorney, I am not alone! It’s obvious now to many that MUNI has been dragging its feet on fixing persistent problems. Safety should be the number one concern of any public transit system.
The following vehicles make up the San Francisco Municipal Railway (a.k.a. MUNI): buses, LRVs, street cars, cable cars and electric buses. MUNI vehicles are often involved in serious accidents, causing injury or wrongful deaths to pedestrians, motorists, motorcyclists, bicyclists and MUNI riders alike.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a MUNI accident, please call me and I’d be happy to speak with you free of charge to explain your options.
