Starting Saturday, June 10, the SFMTA will be adding Muni service on several lines to address crowding, wait times and to support increased summer tourism. We’re also making some stop changes to serve more customers and make the service more accessible and reliable. 

Increased Service 

To address crowding and reduce pass-ups, we’re adding service on the 1 California between Clay and Drumm streets and California Street and Presidio Avenue – where demand is highest – on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

We’re also going to be starting service earlier on the 1X California Express, at 7:30 a.m. instead of 8 a.m., in response to customer feedback, as well as adding stops at Cherry, Spruce and Laurel streets and Presidio Avenue.  

We’re also extending the evening service to the Presidio at 30 Stockton seven days a week. The last trip from the Sports Basement will depart at 8:30 p.m. instead of 8 p.m.  

On the 5 Fulton Owl we’re extending the terminal from McAllister and Jones streets to 4th and Market streets, which will provide a connection to Market Street for customers. 

Additionally, to better support summer tourism, we will add supplemental Muni bus service on weekend afternoons for the F Market & Wharves between the Ferry Building and Fisherman’s Wharf from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. 

Other upcoming changes include frequency increases on the following lines: 

  • 28 19th Avenue – Weekdays and weekends from 10 minutes to 9 minutes during peak morning service and from 12 minutes to 10 minutes during midday  
  • 38R Geary Rapid – Weekdays from 7 minutes to 6 minutes all day 
  • 44 O’Shaughnessy – Weekdays from 12 minutes to 10 minutes 

Stop Changes 

On the 15 Bayview Hunters Point Express, we’re improving access to the shops, banks and supermarket at the Southeast Center by moving the northbound bus stop at 3rd and Evans Street from north of Evans to south of Evans.  

On the 27 Bryant, we’re improving accessibility and reliability by upgrading flag stops to bus zones on Leavenworth and Turk, Post, Sutter, Bush and Pine streets, inbound, and on Bush and Leavenworth outbound. And we’re adding inbound and outbound stops at Valencia and 24th streets to restore the connection there for customers. 

All of the service changes described here are cost neutral. This means that we are shifting available operators and vehicles to Muni lines that need more service to reduce crowding or provide better connections elsewhere.

We’re also prioritizing safety on Muni. If you experience or witness customer or operator harassment on Muni, report it directly to the SFMTA by calling 311 or using the 311 mobile app or the Muni Feedback form (SFMTA.com/MuniFeedback).
