Over the past several months we’ve been busy talking to Muni riders, business owners, community groups and residents about our pedestrian safety and Muni reliability proposals along Mission St. Thank you if you were able to meet with us in person, or if you shared your comments online. Thousands of people weighed in, and feedback was widely supportive of the proposed improvements! 

Our Meeting Round-up feature highlights different SFMTA public meetings that will be held within the coming two weeks. These meetings give you the chance to share your ideas and provide us with helpful feedback. Join us at our next meeting to learn more about SF's changing and complex transportation system.
