San Bruno Ave Multimodal Improvement Project

Project Overview

9 San Bruno bus in service along San Bruno Ave

The San Bruno Ave Multimodal Improvement Project includes pedestrian safety, transit priority and parking management proposals that will make the street safer for people walking, increase the reliability of Muni, and address parking availability in the neighborhood. This project has been approved by the SFMTA Board of Directors.

Near-term improvements like painted safety zones and stop consolidation will roll out ahead of the full project, likely this summer 2017. Sign up for project updates to stay in the loop on progress!

Why San Bruno Ave?

Crowded San Bruno Bus

1) Muni service along San Bruno Ave can be slow and unreliable

  • Leads to longer waits at the stop and crowded buses

2) Congestion on San Bruno Ave leads to Muni delays 

  • Too many double parked vehicles

3) The street is dangerous for people walking and biking 

  • 36 pedestrians and vehicle collisions have happened in the past seven years
