SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— A lot of people don’t think of San Francisco as a 24-hour city, but city Supervisor Scott Wiener disagrees. The lawmaker has taken preliminary steps to improve late-night public transportation options.
“We have a very robust late-night economy. It’s a $4.2 billion economy,” Wiener said, citing a 2011 Economic Impact Report conducted by the city economist. “We also have a lot of workers who go to work very early in the morning.”
Wiener knows that the city’s public transportation system does little to serve that 24-hour nature with few late-night transit options.
He is introducing a resolution to form a working group that will draft a plan to increase those overnight options.
