The greatest concern is the ever increasing cost of the Central Subway Project, now projected to be $176,000 per foot of construction all for less than 2 miles of track. The estimate has ballooned from a projected $648 million (in November 2003) to $1.578 billion today.

The project, already behind schedule, is slated to be completed by 2019. By that time, the cost could triple and San Francisco taxpayers would be on the hook to make up the difference.

Letter to
To all elected representatives of San Francisco
We, the undersigned, strongly oppose construction of the Central Subway. This politically-initiated and grossly-overpriced boondoggle promises few benefits for the people of San Francisco.

Instead it would saddle Muni with millions of dollars a year of additional operating and maintenance costs, thereby hampering efforts to improve transit service and maintain affordable fares.
