Project Details

To ensure that Muni system is in a state of good repairs, the SFMTA will rehabilitate and modernize 11 elevators in the entire subway systems the next four years. Once complete, the new elevators equipped with the state of art technology will greatly improve safety and reliability of Muni system, especially for seniors, people in wheelchairs and those who have special need.

Improvements of the new elevators:

  • New closed loop door operators will provide a new type of motorized mechanism that opens and closes the doors to make it safer and more reliable.

  • Custom door and cab sills provide metal tracks that guide the doors to open and close, with debris traps to reduce the door issues caused by foreign objects.

  • Elevator/Escalator Management System will use computers to allow 24/7 monitoring and remote troubleshooting of the equipment.

Currently the project is going through the bidding process. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2017.
