48 Quintara-24th Street Safety
Project Update - March 2023

After conducting a community survey from late January to late February, we heard from nearly 200 community members who ride the 48 Quintara-24th Street or live near it. We received a strong signal from respondents who would prefer a reroute of the bus in its final blocks. 79% of respondents preferred an option that would move the bus off Tennessee Street and onto Illinois, 20th, 22nd and Maryland streets, and remove parking on a section Illinois Street. See the full survey results and and next steps. 

Project Introduction

Due to safety concerns involving the turn from 3rd Street onto 20th Street, where there have been several collisions involving buses over the past year and a half, the 48 Quintara-24th Street was rerouted in July 2022 to Tennessee Street. Tennessee Street is already designed for transit where the 55 Dogpatch also currently operates. 

We have heard from some members of the community about their concerns about the current routing of the 48 Quintara-24th Street. In response to community feedback, we are conducting a survey to collect a more comprehensive understanding of what the community thinks about the limited alternative solutions than the existing routing. While community feedback is an important component of decision-making when planning bus routes, safety is always our top priority.
