Who Says the SFPD Doesn’t Really Patrol MUNI Buses?

Lots of transit riders say they never see the SFPD earning its $19 million a year patrolling MUNI in San Francisco, but check out this Neoplan AN460 Diesel seen on Market Street today - it was filled with cops and there were three others just like it close by.

In fact, there were so many officers aboard there was no room for anyone else, as these four, forlorn, forsaken, would-be passengers illustrate. Click to expand:

Obviously, the S.F.P.D. does more than just ride a few buses now and then, but Supervisor Bevan Dufty‘s questioning of just how all that money gets earned seems appropriate.

  1. You can see the SFPD on the T on certain occasion, but they mainly double as fare inspectors

    Muchas, thanks for your comment. I’ll have to get on the T one of these days.

    I know for a fact that uniformed officers are assigned to ride MUNI on a regular basis, but I don’t know how the value of what the SFPD does got assigned to be $11 million or $19 million or whatever…

  3. Just saw another one today on the N. Got on at Noe and Duboce
