Presidio Yard Modernization Project RAISE Grant Data Repository
The Presidio Yard Modernization Project will rebuild and transform a century-old bus facility into a modern, state-of-the-art transit maintenance facility for the SFMTA's electric-powered trolleys and buses. The new bus facility will be more resilient to earthquakes and improve the efficiency and reliability of the transit system by significantly reducing downtime and maintenance costs. The vision is to improve the Yard and its surroundings. A modern Presidio Yard will support reliable transit service by improving maintenance and working conditions, getting buses back into service sooner. It will also improve street safety around the facility with updates to adjacent arterials to reduce traffic-related injuries and encourage walking, bicycling, and taking transit. As the facility is in a central location along a heavily traveled transit route, the project will explore potential joint development and mixed use opportunities with an innovative vision of leveraging joint development to generate additional revenues for the SFMTA and help fund Muni operations.
A RAISE grant will fund an inclusive planning and design process that will be guided by the principle that community-informed decisions result in better outcomes. The planning, design, and other predevelopment activities include a geotechnical study, economic feasibility analysis of joint development, conceptual designs, public engagement, and environmental review.
