Located at Bryant and Mariposa Streets, Potrero Yard is an over 100-year-old bus yard, which is long past its lifespan and does not meet current seismic safety standards. The new state-of-the-art bus facility will not only improve maintenance and storage capabilities but support a greener, more sustainable and reliable transportation system for our community.
The Potrero Yard Modernization Project also gives San Francisco a unique opportunity to address a critical housing need. The project proposes up to 513 units of affordable and workforce housing, subject to funding sources and market feasibility. Plus, it includes retail opportunities at three key intersections with space for street vendors along 17th Street. Our design is rooted in being a good neighbor by minimizing shadowing on Franklin Square Park, providing a public restroom, offering views into the yard of Muni operations and including a strategy to achieve a LEED Gold rating.

The SFMTA selected the Potrero Neighborhood Collective (PNC) as the Development Team to refine the Project during the pre-development phase, and PNC is expected to design, build, finance, and maintain Potrero Yard as part of a Public Private Partnership (P3) with the City.
