This Week: Making 16th Street Work Better for Muni

The SFMTA is holding public meetings this week on a more transit-friendly 16th Street and a new residential parking permit area in NoPa. You can also take a ride with the SF Bicycle Coalition to see how well streets perform for bicycling in the Richmond District.

Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Wednesday: The SFMTA is putting on an open house about transit improvements for 16th Street that will speed up Muni’s 22-Fillmore with upgrades like transit-only lanes and bus bulb-outs, as well as bicycle improvements on parallel 17th Street. 6 p.m.
  • Friday: The SFMTA’s engineering hearing agenda includes a new residential parking permit zone — area Q — in the Alamo Square and NoPa neighborhoods. 10 a.m.
  • Saturday: Ride alongside Andy Thornley, the SFBC’s former policy director, for Andy’s Audits, an evaluation of San Francisco’s streets from the two-wheeled perspective. The first ride looks at the Richmond, the northwest corner of the city that Andy calls home. 1:30 p.m.
