22 Fillmore Transit Priority Project

Project Overview

A 22 Fillmore bus at a bus stop on 16th at Mission

As part of Muni Forward, the SFMTA is planning transit priority and pedestrian safety improvements for the 22 Fillmore route along 16th Street, including transit-only lanes, transit bulbs and islands, new traffic signals, and several pedestrian safety upgrades. This project will correlate with several infrastructure upgrades along 16th Street, including repaving and utility work, and will also include extending the overhead contact system (OCS) from Kansas Street to Third Street to allow for zero-emission transit service into Mission Bay.

By the Numbers:

 Reduce travel time by almost 25% for the overall 22 Fillmore route
  • Dedicating transit-only lanes to allow buses to bypass traffic,
    reducing delay and making for a smoother ride.
    Increasing bus stop spacing from an average of one to two blocks
    to an average of two to four blocks.
  • Adding new traffic signals 
 2 more buses per hour = 20% more service
  • Increasing frequency during the AM and PM peak
    period for a less crowded and more reliable ride.
  • Expanding the overhead wire system
    and realigning the 22 Fillmore route
    for a direct, zero-emission transit connection between
    development at Mission Bay and the 16th Street BART Station,
    the Mission District, and Fillmore Street.

 14 intersections with wider sidewalks for safer pedestrian crossings and quicker bus boardings.
  • Extending the bicycle route on 17th Street for a safe
    and attractive parallel east-west connection for people
    on bicycles.

  • San Francisco’s Vision Zero policy seeks to eliminate all
    traffic-related fatalities by 2024. Muni Forward will play a big part
    in this effort by enhancing pedestrian safety at intersections with
    engineering measures like sidewalk bulbouts which increase
    visibility of people walking and shorten crossing distances.
