Allocation of outbound trains on weekday morningsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Transit First San Francisco : One Thread
Does anyone ride the outbound M Oceanview on weekday mornings? If so, perhaps you've also noticed the conspicuous absense of these trains while many L, K, J, and N cars, not to mention countess "out of service" cars, go by. The result mostly is exasperated and late San Francisco State students, faculty and staff, crammed like sardines into a lone M car that finally comes along 20 minutes later than it should. Just this morning (12/8) there were no Ms between 8:40 and 9:10 am, though the schedule reads "every 10-12 minutes." Four "out of service" cars went by in that time, and bushels of Js and Ns. No explanation was given over the PA system or electronic banner.
