    Above map shows bus stops that are changing and nearest alternative boarding locations. Stops that are not shown will remain the same.

    The Geary Rapid Project aims to improve Muni’s 38 Geary and 38R Geary Rapid bus service and bring much-needed safety improvements to the Geary corridor between Stanyan and Market streets. As a part of any bus stop change, SFMTA considers factors such as distance between stops, average ridership, accessibility of next-closest stops and transfers for each bus stop. These changes include removing or consolidating closely-spaced stops to improve travel time and reliability, while maintaining access. Refinements have been made in response to extensive outreach and community member input

    At a later date, the Larkin inbound stop at O'Farrell will move to the east side of the intersection, so buses there don’t get stopped at red lights as often.
