Muni Routes Serving City Schools

Time to plan your route back to school! Did you know most schools are within a five-minute walk of a Muni stop?

BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY TIPS

September is Pedestrian Safety Month, a good time to remember to slow down and pay attention. Our Vision Zero partners at the San Francisco Department of Public Health share additional safety reminders each year and have a lot of great resources on their Safe Routes to Schools page. Read our blog post, Keeping Our Kids Safe - One Tip at a Time, for more tips and resources.

Travel back to school safely by walking on sidewalks and obeying traffic signs and crossing guards. Download a Back to School Safety Tips sheet here.

Plan Your Trip

It's easy to ride transit to or from school. Every middle and high school in the San Francisco Unified School District is served by at least one Muni route. There's even a special "school trippers" service, the supplemental Muni routes that begin after school hours and serve middle and high schools throughout the city. 

There are two ways to start planning your Muni ride to or from school:

  • Find your school on the list below to explore the nearest bus routes and rail lines available. 
  • Visit “Routes & Stops” to see a map and schedule for all SFMTA services. 

Additional Resouces and Safety Info

SFMTA does not provide buses for fields trips. Please contact the SFUSD to request a field trip bus

The Free Muni for Youth Program provides low to moderate income city youth between the ages of five and 18 (students enrolled in Special Education Services are eligible until the age of 22) with a special Clipper Card to help them meet their transportation needs whether it be in the morning or afternoon. Since Free Muni for Youth was started in March of 2013, nearly 27,000 students have enrolled into the program. If you have not had time to sign up for the Free Muni for Youth Program, and are between the ages 5-17, you still get a discounted fare of $1.00 to ride on Muni with a valid ID.

Another way we work to make student travel safer is by using the Muni Transit Assistance Program. Since launching in 1996, MTAP works with and trains members of the community in conflict resolution who then ride on specific routes with the purpose of diffusing and deterring any conflicts, acts of vandalism, and who assist the bus operators as needed.

Whether it’s establishing 15-mile-per-hour school zones, improving crosswalks or constructing bulb out transit stops, the SFMTA is constantly working to improve service and increase safety for all riders. As Muni’s fleet is gradually replaced by larger and more efficient vehicles and Muni Forward projects lead to service increases and overall transit improvements throughout the city, Muni will continue to provide both the children and school district will service well into the future.
