Permanent Slow Streets

Project Introduction

Slow Streets path to permanence map

Permanent Slow Streets is an effort to convert the existing temporary Slow Streets into permanent features in their neighborhoods. The Slow Streets team will vet each existing Slow Street and determine if there's community support for permanence. If support exists, the Slow Street will undergo the 'path to permanence' process, which entails additional outreach and design, and finally the approval process to maintain the Slow Streets designation.

For more information on the Slow Streets program, visit the main webpage at SFMTA.com/SlowStreets.

Slow Streets in Step 2

Community outreach processes are underway for the Slow Streets in Step 2, see below for more details. Virtual open houses are currently or will be live soon to inform the community about the path to permanence process and to gather feedback on potential additional traffic safety treatments on the Slow Street in their neighborhood. Additionally, the Slow Streets team will host a number of virtual meetings to talk about these streets and their permanent Slow Street design. Event details for the virtual office hours can be found in the "related events" section on this webpage or on the virtual open house webpage for each Slow Street currently in Step 2.

Page Slow Street

 Page Street between Gough and Stanyan is transitioning into Step 2 in the permanence process via the Page Slow Street Project. The Page Slow Street will extend and expand the 2019 Page Street Bikeway Pilot Project to allow more implementation and evaluation of temporary traffic changes (including on Haight Street near Octavia Boulevard) and public engagement prior to finalizing and approving more permanent measures. More information coming soon!  

The following corridors are not on the path to permanence but may be included in the future:

  • Holly Park Circle 
  • Cayuga Avenue
  • All Phase 4 Slow Streets 
  • Slow Streets in District 4 - Permanent Slow Streets will be explored as part of the SFCTA District 4 Mobility Study 


This program was made possible in part by Proposition K Sales Tax dollars provided by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority.
