Transit Effectiveness Project Overview

The Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP) is a program to improve reliability and provide quicker trips for Muni customers. As part of the Muni Rapid vision, and in conjunction with other Muni programs, the TEP will be the blueprint for making Muni a great transportation choice for our residents and visitors. More about the TEP.

At the current stage of the TEP, staff is developing proposals to improve reliability and travel time along eight heavily-used Rapid bus routes and rail lines. Learn more about the Rapid proposals.

TEP Pilots

The 76X Marin Headlands pilot was implemented in November as part of the Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP). The Church Street transit-only lane pilot will be implemented as soon as temperatures stay above 55 degrees and there is no precipitation for at least 72 hours.  For an update on the TEP and these pilot projects, review the latest TEP implementation presentation to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Directors.
