The Van Ness Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project is a package of transit and pedestrian safety improvements. To implement the full benefits of the project, sidewalk and roadway reconfigurations will be necessary, including proposed parking changes and left turn restrictions.

The SFMTA is taking the required legislation to public hearing. Parking is proposed to be removed to accommodate the BRT design elements such as center boarding islands and pedestrian bulbs. Most left turns are proposed to be removed to facilitate better traffic flow and reduce delays to transit and traffic, and also to minimize the removal of parking by eliminating left turn lanes.
