  • Concrete pavement roadway base work is planned for the weeks of October 28 and November 4 on Geary Boulevard between Scott and Divisadero streets. During active roadway work, the outbound 38/38R bus stop at Divisadero will be temporarily relocated west. Look for “Board Here” signs nearby.

Starting today: O'Farrell and Larkin bus stop relocated

Beginning Friday, October 25 the inbound 38 Geary bus stop at O'Farrell and Larkin streets will be permanently relocated to the east side of the intersection.

By moving bus stops to the farside of intersections, buses can take advantage of transit signal priority, which makes them more likely to catch a green light. At this intersection, the sidewalk will also be extended at some corners to improve safety for people walking.
