This video is part of the series “Can S.F.’s next mayor save Muni?” quizzing San Francisco mayoral candidates on their public transit policies. Reporter Jerold Chinn and photographer Steven Rhodes conducted the interviews. Check back daily for more videos interviews.

Assessor-Recorder and San Francisco mayoral candidate Phil Ting wants Muni riders to join him in “resetting” Muni. He is behind the online community known as Reset SF, where residents get a chance to share their ideas with Ting on improving city government transparency.

One of the central topics of Reset SF is Muni and how to improve service and reliability. Ting has held several town hall meetings around the city to hear about ways of improving Muni lines such as the 1-California and 38-Geary bus lines.

Muni problems need to be solved today not further down the road, said Ting. He said he has the solutions to just do that. Find out what they are.
