Muni raising fares---again

Automatic Indexing
Automatic fare increases

Muni is raising fares again,
though fares only cover 19% of its expenses in a billion dollar budget (page 10). 


Note also that it makes $331 million a year on parking fees and fines, which is why it must continue to prey on everyone who drives those wicked motor vehicles in the city.

Note too on page 10 that Muni makes millions on advertising placed on Muni vehicles, which includes the ads covering bus windows that demonstrate the contempt the agency has for its passengers. 

Muni makes less than $500,000 on those ads, but they have to keep running them in a billion dollar budget because, you understand, they might have to cut service without that money.

61% of its budget (page 11) goes to pay for its 6,263 employees, though that head count is for 2015 and is surely higher now.
