What Would YOU Ask New SFMTA CEO Ed Reiskin?

As you may have read elsewhere, Muni’s new CEO Ed Reskin started his new job today. Despite not having direct transit experience, Mr. Reiskin (who hasn’t owned a car since the 1990s) was picked primarily for his administrative skills and his ability to navigate City Hall.
It will be interesting to see how this works out, and what will happen, post-election (which has been convulsing for weeks now). We have an opportunity to make some changes and have Muni move past the Era of Ford, but what changes will happen and whether they are any good is anyone’s guess.
I am going to try and get a short interview with Mr. Reiskin once he’s settled in to his new office. In the meantime, what kinds of questions would you like to ask the new Muni/MTA boss? Or alternately, what issues would you like to see him make a priority moving forward?
Post your questions in the comments section and let’s see what happens!

    RescueMuni is going to have an open board meeting with Reskin next month, it would be great if you could join us for the Q&A.

    How can we make the system more reliable? Really, that is what it boils down to.
    Caltrain was super reliable when the baby bullets were first established (other than the unfortunate suicides that mess up the whole commute). I knew if I caught the 7:14 southbound train, I would be at my desk by 8:30. Lately, they have been having breakdowns, signal or switch problems, etc., and it is getting frustrating.
    The bottom line for me with MUNI is that because it is so unreliable, I have to add 10-20 extra minutes for every trip to an appointment if I don’t want to be late. At times, even that is not enough.
    Does anyone think you can plug in two addresses into the 511 trip planner or Google Maps and actually follow the instructions that are displayed? You can’t depend on the inbound M arriving at Castro station every morning at 6:36 am, as just one data point.
