Geary Boulevard, Geary and O'Farrell streets are home to one of the busiest bus corridors west of the Mississippi. Over 52,000 people rely on the 38 Geary local, rapid and express routes to get where they need to go.
But uneven wait times, overcrowded buses and inconsistent travel times are a daily reality. These issues persist even with frequent service – provided by longer 60-foot buses – scheduled to run every 2.5 minutes during rush hour, and near-term upgrades to bus lanes implemented recently under Muni Forward.
Geary is also a high-injury corridor, meaning it hosts a disproportionate number of traffic-related crashes. In fact, crossing Geary you’re eight times more likely to be hit by traffic than the citywide average. This is unacceptable.
The Geary Rapid project will address these issues and make traveling for everyone on the corridor more efficient and reliable and safer for everyone.
