5 Fulton Rapid Project

Project Introduction

Muni is working on multiple fronts to make getting around San Francisco safer, more reliable, and more comfortable for our customers. As part of this effort, we’re creating a Rapid Network that will improve the frequency and reliability on lines and routes that carry 70% of customers, including the 5 Fulton. Several changes are proposed along the 5 Fulton corridor. These changes will build on those already implemented as part of the 5L Fulton Limited pilot project, including optimizing bus stop locations, adding transit bulbs and right turn pockets, replacing all-way STOP-controlled intersections with traffic signals or traffic calming measures, adding pedestrian bulbs and ladder-style crosswalks, and more.

These adjustments include route restructuring, frequency improvements, and vehicle type changes, which will direct resources where they are needed most, reducing crowding and improving connections to regional transit.
