Muni Forward: Enhancing Safety and Access
Increasing Pedestrian Safety
We’re working to ensure pedestrian safety enhancements are implemented to reduce serious pedestrian injuries and fatalities.
- Vision Zero: San Francisco has committed to Vision Zero, a goal to achieve zero traffic-related pedestrian deaths by 2024. We’re working closely with the city and WalkFirst to implement pedestrian safety features in most of our plans for transit infrastructure.
- Rapid Network: Our transit reliability enhancements along the Rapid Network will increase pedestrian safety on 25% of San Francisco’s high-injury network, in coordination with the City’s Vision Zero policy.
New and Improved Fleet
We're rehabilitating our fleet of buses and trains to provide a cleaner, quieter, more comfortable ride, with less vehicle downtime for repairs. This includes:
- Replacing our entire bus fleet over the next five years, having already received 112 new buses
- Doubling the size of our rail fleet, with the first batch of trains arriving in 2016.
- We recently collected public input on key features of the new trains. Learn more and view the results.
We’re making sure everyone who wants to ride can safely get on and off our buses and trains, including:
- Upgrading the escalators at entrances to Muni and BART
- Adding and replacing elevators at Muni Metro stations to increase accessibility
- As part of Central Subway, we're planning to construct a new elevator traveling between the concourse and the Muni platform levels of Powell Station
- Constructing new accessible platforms to provide safer boardings:
We're adding better signs and updating our system map to make finding and navigating the Muni network easier:
