SFMTA Open House for Muni 8X-Bayshore Express Improvements

From SFMTA:

Muni is working on multiple fronts to make getting around San Francisco safer and more reliable for our customers. As part of this effort, we’re improving transit corridors throughout the city, including the 8X Bayshore Express. Proposed improvements along Geneva, Visitacion, and Bayshore are designed to reduce travel time by 9 minutes in each direction.
Proposed changes will:
  • Improve pedestrian safety at intersections with pedestrian sidewalk extensions
  • Improve route reliability by optimizing transit stop locations at seven intersections
  • Make boarding the bus quicker and more comfortable by adding transit sidewalk extensions
  • Establish one mile of transit-only lanes on Geneva Avenue
Join staff at any time during the open house to ask questions and discuss these improvements.
