SFMTA Open House: Muni 71-Haight/Noriega TEP Improvements

From SFMTA:

Muni is working on multiple fronts to make getting around San Francisco safer, faster and more reliable for our customers, because less time spent waiting for transit means more time for the things that matter.

As part of this effort, we’re creating a Rapid Network that will improve the frequency and reliability on lines and routes that carry 80% of customers, including the 71. Several changes are proposed on Haight Street between Stanyan and Laguna Streets.

Proposed changes could include:

•  Modifying transit stop locations at three intersections.

•  Adjusting transit stop spacing to three to four blocks.

•  Adding a designated signal for transit vehicles at one intersection.

•  Replacing all-way STOP-controlled intersections with traffic signals at four intersections.

SFMTA will be hosting an open house to discuss these proposals on June 23 at 6:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church at 22 Waller Street.

Staff will be on hand to answer questions and discuss these changes. There will be no presentation.

For those who are unable to attend, or would like to provide comments online, there is an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/71rapidnetwork-survey
