Geneva-San Jose Intersection Study

Project Overview

Intersection of Geneva Avenue and San Jose Avenue

The SFMTA is studying the area around the Geneva Avenue/San Jose Avenue intersection with the goal of developing short, medium and long-term improvements to transit access and safety for all users. Both Geneva and San Jose avenues are on the City’s Vision Zero High-Injury Network. This study will complement numerous projects underway in the immediate vicinity, including BART’s Station Modernization, the city’s Upper Yard Development and the city’s rehabilitation of the Geneva Car Barn. The study scope was developed in coordination with the Balboa Park Station Citizens Advisory Committee (BPSCAC) and District 11 Supervisor Avalos’ office.

Project Details


Balboa Park Station is one of the busiest transit hubs in the San Francisco Bay Area where four Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) lines connect to three Muni Metro light rail lines and eight Muni bus routes. In addition to this heavy concentration of transit and pedestrian activity, the intersection of Geneva and San Jose avenues handles high volumes of automobile traffic due to its proximity to I-280 freeway ramps and the demand for pick-up and drop-off activity, as well as the direct connectivity that both Geneva and San Jose avenues provide to neighboring destinations.

About the Study

This study will develop conceptual design improvements to address safety issues near the intersection. The analysis will include a focus on passenger access to Muni’s M Ocean View Line, which terminates within the Cameron Beach Yard on San Jose Avenue between Geneva and Niagara Avenues. This study will build upon past analyses and develop recommendations for improvements consistent with known plans.

Public Outreach

Three open house meetings are planned to receive feedback and input from the public.

  1. Informational Gathering – SFMTA staff will present a summary of existing conditions and ask for community feedback on how people travel though the area today and their ideas for the future.This feedback will be used in developing recommendations for both near-term and long-term improvement recommendations for the area. OPEN HOUSE WAS HELD ON OCTOBER 26, 2016.

  2. Conceptual Design – SFMTA staff will present preliminary concepts for safety improvements and M Ocean View terminal operations utilizing technical analysis and public input from the first public meeting

  3. Recommendations – Based on the input received at previous meetings and continued investigation of feasibility, SFMTA staff will present recommendations for short, medium and long-term safety improvements and M-Ocean View terminal operations.
