Our Board of Directors meetings are usually held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. Tomorrow’s meeting will include an overview of the recommendations from the Late Night Transportation Working Group as well as a request to place the 2015 order for 98 new New Flyer low-floor biodiesel hybrid buses. The contract with New Flyer is for 200 buses and allows for us to acquire them through annual options. Tomorrow, staff will ask the Board to approve the option for this year.

The agendas are posted under “meetings” on the Board’s web page 72 hours in advance of the meeting. All regular meetings can be viewed on The City channel 78 or online at the SFGovTV2.

The SFMTA is working on making San Francisco transportation safer and more reliable. Community members are encouraged to attend the meeting and receive the latest information about the Muni Forward 14 Mission Rapid Project. The proposed improvements along Mission Street include: removing turn conflicts at busy intersections, adding transit sidewalk extensions and establishing transit-only lanes to reduce muni delays. As a part of this effort we are holding a public forum regarding the proposed changes along the corridor.

At our April open house we’ll be gathering input on the top two design options (.pdf) for transit-only lanes on Mission Street.

If you cannot attend, but would still like to provide feedback about the 14 Mission project, please take the online survey for the project.

This open house is an opportunity for the public to learn about upcoming safety improvements for the Upper Market corridor, from Castro Street to Octavia Boulevard, which is one of the city’s ‘high injury’ pedestrian and bicycle corridors. Staff will be on hand to explain the approach to the project and how the proposed safety measures are expected make Upper Market Street safer and more comfortable for everyone.

At this event, you can also provide feedback that will be incorporated into future Upper Market Street planning efforts.
