The 55 Dogpatch route began service in January 2021, after a public hearing in 2019 and SFMTA Board approval in December 2020.
The SFMTA worked with the community to determine possible alignments and stops for a new connection to the 16th Street Corridor called the 55 Dogpatch. The goal of this new route is to balance current rider needs, future development considerations and the steep grades of many streets in the area. The 55 Dogpatch is being designed to maintain and enhance transit connections to Potrero Hill and the Dogpatch.
This change is being coordinated with implementation of the 16th Street Improvement Project, which will shift the eastern portion of 22 Fillmore bus route to travel the length of 16th Street from Church to 3rd Street. Once this shift happens, transit connections between the 16th Street corridor and the Dogpatch/Potrero Hill area currently served by 22 Fillmore will be replaced by the 55 Dogpatch.
During the summer and fall of 2018 the SFMTA worked closely with the community to determine routing of the new 55 Dogpatch. We have completed the evalutation of an extensive survey and the results are in!
The winning route based on over 1,000 responses!
