ATTN: There is currently an IB/Eastbound svc gap on the #KIngleside & #MOceanView lines due to earlier #SubwaySvc delays in the Westbound direction. We are working to close this gap as quickly as possible. (More: 10 in last 48 hours)

Slow Streets - Bayview
Project Introduction
Slow Streets Phase 4 Update (05/12/2021): After additional review, the SFMTA will not be implementing the proposed Slow Streets in the Bayview. Instead, we will refocus on traffic calming treatments to better address the needs identified in our outreach.

The goal of the SFMTA’s Slow Streets program is to provide more space for socially distant essential travel and exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the city, nearly thirty corridors have been implemented as a Slow Street. For more information on the Slow Streets program, click here

The program is designed to limit through traffic on certain residential streets and allow them to be used as a shared space for people traveling by foot, scooters, skateboards, and bicycles. On these Slow Streets, signage and barricades have been placed to minimize through vehicle traffic.  

  • Slow Streets are temporary restrictions to through traffic.  
  • Residents can still drive to their homes, receive deliveries, be picked up or dropped off, and more.  
  • These are not full street closures, and city services like trash pickup and street sweeping will remain.  
  • On a Slow Street, the space in the roadway is shared between people on bikes or on foot, and people driving or riding in cars.
