Due to road closures, officials are strongly advising individuals who need to travel downtown to utilize public transportation. This presents a potential opportunity for Barton Muny to regain riders. Many residents of San Francisco will heavily rely on public transit during what is considered a Super Bowl week for public transportation. Some individuals stopped taking transit due to the pandemic, but now see a chance to reconsider their decision.
As traffic is expected to worsen, public transit may prove to be a faster option. However, there are concerns about safety and reliability.
