Project Details, History or Features 

Key Improvements:

  • Bus stops at signalized intersections will be moved across the street to reduce instances of buses needing to stop before and after a stop light, improve traffic safety and reduce pedestrian conflicts.
  • Between O’Farrell and Union Streets, these changes would increase the distance between stops from 1-2 blocks to 2-3 blocks, which will increase service reliability. 
  • Where possible, sidewalk widening and shelters are proposed at bus stops to improve customer waiting areas.
