Taraval Street is part of the City's High Injury Network, with 46 pedestrian and vehicle collisions reported in the past five years. Taraval Street is also home to Muni's L Taraval, which carries nearly 29,000 riders each day, 10,000 boarding in the Sunset alone. The SFMTA is proposing pedestrian safety and transit improvements along the surface portion of the route to improve safety for people walking along Taraval and those getting on and off the train, while also increasing the reliability of the L.
For a detailed description of the project, an online webinar is available on the Muni Forward website.
The Unity Plaza will be an approx. 210-by-65 foot public open space west of the City College Terminal. The fully accessible plaza will be landscaped with trees and plants, and include benches, pedestrian lighting, special artistic pavement, a domed climbing structure and photography displays depicting the history of the area. The space will serve as an attractive pedestrian link between Muni's K Line stop on Ocean Avenue to its south, the expanded City College campus to its north and the new City College bus terminal.
