The Geary corridor is home to one of the busiest bus corridors west of the Mississippi. SFMTA has been working to improve Geary service with popular initiatives like new low-floor buses and more frequent Rapid service. Yet, the almost 54,000 people who rely on the 38 Geary local, rapid and express routes experience crowded buses and uneven wait times. Additional improvements are needed to meet rising transportation demands.
Geary is also a high-injury corridor, meaning it hosts a disproportionate number of traffic-related crashes. In fact, you’re eight times more likely to be hit by traffic when crossing Geary than the citywide average. This is unacceptable.
The Geary Rapid project proposes investments between Market and Stanyan streets to address these issues. By implementing continuous dedicated bus-only lanes and treatments to address the most common causes of pedestrian collisions, the Geary Rapid project will make traveling the corridor a more reliable and safer experience for everyone.
