Attend a Special Meeting for the Civic Center
Please join us for this presentation on a project that will transform Van Ness Avenue over the next few years. The project calls for dedicated bus lanes separated from traffic from Lombard to Mission streets which will be used by Muni’s 49 and 47 lines and Golden Gate Transit. The dedicated lanes will flank center landscaped medians along Van Ness Avenue. All‐door boarding, elimination of most left turns, transit signal priority, and traffic signal optimization will help reduce travel time on the corridor by as much as 33 percent.
Meeting: Thursday, November 20, 2:00-3:00pm
Location: SFMTA’s Civic Center Conference Room (1 South Van Ness, Room 3074)
Open to All
The Van Ness Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will be the first BRT service in San Francisco. Its main goal is to create efficient and more reliable transit service along the Van Ness Avenue corridor between Mission and Lombard streets. Other goals are to promote pedestrian safety and accessibility, enhance the urban design, and strengthen the identity of Van Ness Avenue.
Van Ness BRT will improve transit reliability for the 47 and 49 Muni routes and provide reliable transit connections to transfer routes. Strengthening transit along this two-mile stretch of Van Ness will also positively affect the efficiency of connecting routes. The transit service and infrastructure changes are expected to reduce transit ravel times by over 30 percent. By 2035, with the implementation of BRT, ridership is projected to be greater than 60,000 passengers per day.
