Muni is now aware that they must expect to keep diesel buses past their design life and have also found that funds granted for mid-life rebuilds require that the buses be kept longer still. [188][189], The SFMTA is also studying a bus rapid transit route on the Geneva-Harney corridor on the southeast side of the city. As the fleet replacement cycle begins again in 2013, Muni has arranged for life-extending rebuilds of 142 buses, by count over 30% of the fleet.
