Mission and 4th streets.

When thinking about creating a better transportation system in San Francisco over the next 50 years, which values like equity, safety, sustainability and economy vitality are most important to you?

We’re asking that question with on-street pop-up tabling events around the city and an online survey as part of Connect SF, an effort between city agencies to create a vision for transportation in San Francisco over the next five decades.

For the first phase of Connect SF last fall, we asked San Franciscans to draw their dream subway map to help create our Subway Vision.

This summer, we’ll expand our effort by working with the new Connect SF Futures Task Force, which is made up of neighborhood leaders, transportation advocates, community groups, regional voices, civic leaders and business representatives.

From Friday, March 31 to Friday, April 7, the SFMTA is closing off a small segment of northbound Octavia Street, from Linden to Hayes streets, for the Octavia Open Street events that will experiment with opening this block for people who want to walk or bike more in the neighborhood. Through our ongoing community outreach work on the Octavia Boulevard Enhancement Project, we’ve heard a clear and consistent neighborhood interest in creating more public space and creating livability improvements near Patricia’s Green. 

People sitting in chairs and bicycles parked in a public space next to Patricia's Green park on Octavia Street near Hayes Street.

This open streets event won’t just help us evaluate how a closure like this would work. It will highlight the overall public realm opportunities along this popular boulevard for everyone in the area.

March 29 Update: The next major step for the Geary projects (both the Geary Rapid project and the Geary Boulevard Improvement Project) is a hearing at an SFMTA Board of Directors meeting this summer to complete local environmental review approvals. Then, once the Federal Transit Administration has signed off on the final environmental impact statement, the Geary Rapid project team will complete the outreach described below to finalize design details. Implementation of the Geary Rapid improvements is expected to start next year. 

We’re gearing up to start the first set of Geary transit upgrades later this year.

In the coming months, we will launch further outreach for the Geary Rapid Project, which focuses on early improvements on the stretch of the 38 Geary route between Market Street and Stanyan streets. In the meantime, we will finalize the design and construction of longer-term improvements for the Geary Boulevard Improvement Project.

With the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) approved unanimously by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) Board in January, lead management of the project is transitioning from the SFCTA to the SFMTA, which will design and implement Geary improvements as two separate projects.
