Event Summary

Better Market Street is an ongoing, collaborative effort to redesign San Francisco’s most important street. As work continues, crews will begin work in the roadway and near Muni tracks on Saturday, October 14, and we will be temporarily moving above-ground transit off Market Street from October 14th through Saturday, October 28th during all hours of service. This will allow us to install underground electrical conduits for new traffic signals and construct new concrete crosswalks. As a result, the 5 Fulton, 5R Fulton Rapid, 6 Haight/Parnassus, 7 Haight/Noriega, 9 San Bruno, 9R San Bruno Rapid will be re-routed onto Mission Street and the 19 Polk, 21 Hayes and 31 Balboa will experience minor re-routes as well. Continue reading below for more details.

Street Closures

Market Street will be closed between 5th and 8th streets, however, transit and bicycles will be rerouted off Market between 3rd and 10th Streets. Cross-street traffic will still be allowed at the intersections at 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th, 9th and 10th.

Muni Reroutes

Muni will replace the F Market & Wharves Line with buses and reroute the F Market & Wharves Bus Substitutions, L Taraval Bus, N Judah Owl, 5 Fulton, 5R Fulton Rapid, 6 Haight/Parnassus, 7 Haight/Noriega, 9 San Bruno and 9R San Bruno Rapid routes off of Market Street and onto Mission Street in both directions. Additionally, the 19 Polk, 21 Hayes, and 31 Balboa routes will experience more minor reroutes in the Market Street area. See the table below the reroute details for each route.

Note: Be sure to receive real-time Muni service alerts via email or text by signing up through our Email and Text Subscriptions page.
