Accessible Pedestrian Signals

An Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) is a pedestrian push button that communicates when to cross the street in a non-visual manner, such as audible tones, speech messages, and vibrating surfaces.

Current & requested locations: APS Intersection List


To request that the SFMTA install an APS at an intersection, a requestor may submit the intersection, their name and contact information, and the format in which the requestor wishes to receive a response to the SFMTA online or by phone:

Within 90 days, SFMTA will provide the following information in the requested format:

  1. The relative priority of the requested intersection as compared to other requested intersections.
  2. Whether any work is being planned at that intersection.
  3. Whether an APS is likely to be installed within the next three years.
  4. The name and phone number of a contact person at SFMTA to answer questions about the request.

For most intersections already equipped with pedestrian signals, SFMTA will complete installation of an APS at funded locations as soon as reasonably possible after receiving funding for the requested location.
