Go for a ride? Awesome job Marie Jobling and all!

January 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

Great news: public transportation will be free for low and moderate income San Franciscans starting March 2015. San Francisco has a compact and strong network of advocates for older adults, and this is one of the results.  Let’s hope that more cities will follow!

Below is the email from Marie Jobling, one of the most committed advocates for the rights of older adults to live in their community.

Thanks to a year of advocacy from Senior and Disability Action (SDA) members in collaboration with Chinatown Community Development Corporation and many other community groups, low and moderate income seniors and people with disabilities will be able to ride MUNI for free!

The San Francisco Metropolitan Transportation Agency (MTA) voted unanimously on Tuesday, January 20 to approve this program. We applaude Tom Nolan and the members of the MTA for their efforts to reach this historic decision.

Free MUNI will begin March 1 and to participate, you must register!
