If you care about the 71-Haight bus line—and, frankly, who doesn't?—then you'll want to pencil Monday night at 6pm  into your calendar. That's when Muni will be hosting an open house to discuss changes to the line.

A recent study unsurprisingly concluded that the 71 "operates at less than optimal speeds during peak periods." So, as part of Muni's proposed Rapid Network, the line could see a number of improvements, including:

  • Replacing 4-way stop intersections with traffic signals at four intersections along Haight Street—at Clayton, Baker, Broderick, and Buchanan
  • Modifying bus stop locations at several intersections
  • Adding a designated traffic signal for buses at Haight and Buchanan
  • Removing stop signs at various intersections on Haight and replacing them with "traffic calming measures"

This coming Monday, June 23rd from 6pm to 7:30pm, SFMTA reps will be on hand to discuss the proposals and answer your questions. The open house will take place at the First Baptist Church at 22 Waller Street, at the corner of Octavia.

If you can't attend, you can still log your thoughts via Muni's online survey, which appears not quite ready for primetime yet. You'll probably want to check back in a few days.
