5. Balboa Park Station Pedestrian and Bicycle Connection Project (Discussion/Action) Frank Markowitz and Kim Walton
Frank Markowitz, Senior Planner, stated that the Balboa Park Station Capacity study was divided out from the Balboa Park Station Pedestrian and Bicycle Connection project in order to qualify for Proposition K funding. The three goals of the capacity study are: 1) analyze long term needs and options for station properties, entrances, and rail yards; 2) assess the feasibility of proposals from the Better Neighborhood Plan; and 3) support fast track projects, such as lighting, weather protection and signage.
Kim Walton, Transit Planner II, stated that the Balboa Park Station Pedestrian and Bicycle Connection Project study is funded with the 2005 and the 2007 Safe Routes to Transit grants. The study will focus on projects that may include bicycle and pedestrian safety, lighting, landscaping and street furniture. The Technical Advisory Committee includes participants from BART, Caltrans, the City’s Planning Department, the SFMTA Bicycle Program and other departments. Carter Burgess and Fehr & Peers are the consultants identified for this study. The study will start November 2008 and is expected to be completed by July 2009.

Gail Stein, Manager, Real Estate, stated that Clear Channel developed the Inventory, Maintenance and Complaint Database System (IMCDS) website to track and improve shelter cleaning and maintenance. The IMCDS website at sfbusshelters.com will go online in November 2008. Jana Lord, Supervisor, Northern California Division, Clear Channel, gave a demonstration of the new website.
7. All Door Boarding Pilot. (Discussion/Action) Joy Houlihan
Joy Houlihan, Deputy Director, Safety, Security and Enforcement, stated that the All Door pilot project expedites passenger boarding. The Finance Department has noted a seven percent increase in revenue for FY09 of which two and a half percent is directly attributed to the fare evasion program. The Security and Enforcement Division is looking to expand the project to include major bus transfer points after the next group of fare inspectors are hired early in 2009. Chairman Wieser suggested random bus line deployment for fare evasion patrol.
