Shaping SF Transit History Tour

2:49 PM PDT on September 16, 2014

Meet at 518 Valencia (near 16th)
$15-$50 donation requested
Tour ends near Embarcadero and Market

Discover lost freeways, ghosts of train routes, and a vivid account of how San Franciscans moved around and over this peninsula through time. Hear about the violent strikes that shaped public transit, the graft and corruption that conquered the Outside Lands, a history of bicycling, and about the ships and horses that once did it all before bridges, cars, buses, and railroads. It's a social, historical, and critical tour through the city's transportation past and present.

Shaping San Francisco co-director Chris Carlsson conducts this historical tour of San Francisco by bicycle. Bring a snack and water — we don't stop for food! Please email us to RSVP.
