Dee Andrews climbed aboard the J-Church Muni Metro this week, glanced around and voiced words rarely spoken about San Francisco’s public transportation system: “It’s beautiful.”
Andrews, 65, a longtime city resident, had just boarded one of Muni’s new light-rail cars for its inaugural run on the J-Church line.
The car Andrews rode in is among five that have been put into service so far. By the end of the month, said John Haley, the Municipal Transportation Agency’s transit director, “We intend to start putting one new car each week into service.”
Gray and white with a wide red stripe wrapped around them like a ribbon, the new cars offer a different look for Muni.
