JOEL ON TRANSPORTATION
Better public transportation service and increased infrastructure is vital to meet the needs of San Francisco's growing population. It is necessary to fully fund MUNI and BART, but the agencies must be held accountable for how the money is spent and how efficiently they operate. Now is the time to take bold action to prepare for the future by investing in the subway tunnels we regret not building decades ago. This includes MUNI tunnels from West Portal down 19th Avenue to Daly City BART, Geary Boulevard from downtown to the ocean and from Chinatown to Fisherman's Wharf. We also need a new BART tunnel across San Francisco Bay.
