Reducing Crowding and Providing Service to Open Spaces

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

The 30 Stockton bus route extension to Crissy Field in the Presidio began service on September 19. In partnership with the Presidio Trust, Muni implemented this new lifeline connection to bring workers, families, residents and visitors from Chinatown, Tenderloin and SoMa neighborhoods to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area via public transportation.

Shifting from 40-foot to 60-foot buses on the 30 Stockton helps reduce crowded conditions through neighborhoods like Chinatown, a neighborhood that generates some of the highest rates of trips in San Francisco. Moving the terminal to its new location in Crissy Field provides increased space for these longer buses.

Direct access to parks via public transportation is vital for neighborhoods with the least access to open space in San Francisco. Visitors to the Presidio enjoy nature within the city, including miles of walking and biking trails, beaches, scenic overlooks with views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay and the city, as well as picnic and play areas. The 30 Stockton extension not only benefits park-goers, but serves as a lifeline for essential workers who work or live in the Presidio or nearby neighborhoods.
