Mission at Highland Bus Stop & Infrastructure Improvements

SFMTA.com/MissionHighland

Based on community feedback from residents in the neighborhood, the SFMTA will *not* be proceeding with the stop removal at Mission Street at Highland Avenue. However, proposed repaving on Mission Street between Appleton and Crescent avenues will move forward in mid to late-2024.

The SFMTA will revisit reliability and travel time improvements for the 14 Mission and 49 Van Ness Mission throughout the southern portions of these routes as a part of the future Muni Forward project which we are planning to kick off in the next few years.

Project Introduction

The SFMTA is partnering with Public Works to repave Mission Street between Appleton and Crescent Avenues. As a part of this project, we are proposing changes to bus stop spacing to improve reliability on the 14 Mission and 49 Van Ness Mission. This project would also improve vehicle access in the neighborhood. Proposed improvements include:

  • Repaving Mission Street between Appleton and Crescent avenues
  • Removing bus stops on Mission Street at Highland Avenue (both directions)
  • Converting the existing bus zones at Highland Avenue to new uses to serve the neighborhood, including four new metered parking spaces and a new commercial loading zone
