28 19th Avenue (Lincoln Way and Junipero Serra Boulevard) and 28L 19th Avenue Limited and M Ocean View
Muni’s 28 19th Avenue and 28L 19th Avenue Limited bus routes together carry about 17,500 daily customers on an average weekday. The route’s study corridor is 3.4 miles of 19th Avenue between Lincoln Way and Junipero Serra Boulevard. The M Ocean View Line also travels through a portion of the study area.
Within the study corridor, 28 19th Avenue and 28L 19th Avenue Limited together serve over 8,500 customers on an average weekday and the M Ocean View Line serves an additional 5,400 customers at the stops located along 19th Avenue at Holloway Avenue and Winston Drive.
Within the study area, the 28 19th Avenue local service operates at an average speed of 9.9 miles per hour during peak periods. The main sources of delay are closely spaced bus stops and traffic congestion.
Travel Time Reduction Proposal Overview
In order to reduce transit travel times and improve reliability, the SFMTA proposes a toolkit of measures within the study area. The proposals include:
Together, the proposed changes are anticipated to reduce the travel time of the 28 19th Avenue local service by more than 5 minutes in each direction (11 minutes total) within the study area (25 percent reduction), improving the average operating speed to 12.2 miles per hour and improving service reliability. The proposed changes are anticipated to reduce the travel time of the 28L 19th Avenue Limited by 1.5 minutes in each direction (3 minutes total) within the study area (nine percent reduction), improving the average operating speed to 12.7 miles per hour. Transit signal priority improvements are anticipated to save an additional 40 seconds in each direction for the 28 19th Avenue local service and 1.5 minutes each direction for the 28L 19th Avenue Limited. Other changes such as operational improvements and network enhancements would further improve travel times along the corridor and add valuable customer amenities such as NextBus displays. The travel time savings would also reduce operating costs on the line and allow for service to be cost effectively increased.
San Francisco’s Pedestrian Safety Task Force, created through Executive Directive 10-03: Pedestrian Safety In San Francisco, identified several high injury density corridors that encompass less than seven percent of City streets but account for over half of serious and fatal pedestrian injuries, including 19th Avenue. The transit bulbs and pedestrian bulbs recommended as part of this travel time reduction proposal can improve pedestrian safety and could be further enhanced with additional pedestrian safety treatments.
