SFMTA Commuter Shuttle Program Update - April 15 Public Hearing and April 19 MTA Board

Dear Neighbors,

Thank you for your continued interest in the SFMTA Commuter Shuttle Program.  The Commuter Shuttle Program was approved in March 2016 by the SFMTA Board and has been in effect since April 1, 2016.  The 2016-2017 Program includes measures to keep larger shuttles on designated arterials and off smaller streets, reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and emissions, as well guidelines that ensure a safe and efficient transportation network for everyone on San Francisco Streets.  Click here to read more about the details of the 2016-2017 Commuter Shuttle Program

The SFMTA is proposing changes to some of the shuttle zones in order to comply with the new Program Guidelines and we would like to let you know of some upcoming hearings where you may provide your input on these proposed changes.

1. On Friday, April 15, the SFMTA will be holding a Public Hearing to receive any input on the following proposed shuttle zone changes. The Public Hearing is the first opportunity for the public to add input – either in person or via email.  The Public Hearing will take place in City Hall Room 416 at 10 am – click here for the agenda. The SFMTA Board will make a decision on these proposed changes with community input received at this hearing later this Spring or Summer.
