SFMTA COMMUNITY MEETING – PILOT PROJECT TO TEST RED TRANSIT-ONLY LANES ON CHURCH STREET

Join your neighbors and staff from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) to share your input on a proposed pilot project to improve Muni service.

Beginning in September 2012 the SFMTA, which operates Muni, proposes a pilot project to test Muni and Taxi Only Lanes along three blocks of Church Street between 16th Street and Duboce Avenue. This proposal aims to reduce delays and improve service reliability for Muni’s J Church trains and 22 Fillmore buses by allowing Muni vehicles to bypass traffic congestion and access transit stops more quickly. Left turns would be restricted from Church Street at 15th and 16th streets during weekday daytime hours. This proposal is a component of the Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP), a comprehensive effort to improve reliability and provide quicker trips for Muni customers.

This meeting is for information sharing only. A formal hearing on the proposed pilot project will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, August 31 in room 416 of City Hall.
