SFMTA Open House: L Taraval Improvements

From SFMTA:

Join us at an open house to learn about proposed improvements for the L Taraval!

The L Taraval Rapid Project includes pedestrian safety and transit priority proposals that will make it safer for people walking, and increase the reliability of Muni. A suite of improvements are proposed along Taraval St, including:

  • New or extended boarding islands and sidewalk extensions to improve safety for people walking and waiting for Muni
  • New traffic signals and transit-only lanes to reduce Muni delay
  • Consolidating stops to improve route reliability
  • Replacing the tracks, worn overhead wire and trolley poles along the L Taraval surface route to provide a smoother, quieter, more comfortable ride

Join staff at any time during the open house to ask questions and share your thoughts on proposed improvements.

Learn more about the project and take our project survey online.
