L Taraval Improvement Project Work Forecast May 17 to May 28, 2021

Service Affected
Neighborhoods Affected
Details of Work Performed:
  • L Bus serves regular stops: As we are wrapping up the major infrastructure improvements on Taraval Street, the L bus is now serving the regular stops between Embarcadero and the SF Zoo. Starting Saturday, May 15, all subway stations will reopen for the N Judah and KT Ingleside Third train service, the L customers will have an option of transferring between L bus and KT train at West Portal station. The L bus will not serve Forest Hill Station anymore. Transfer to 44 O’Shaughnessy to access that station.
  • Reduced Staging Area: The SFMTA's contractor is hard at work cleaning up and reorganizing the staging area on the Lower Great Highway. To minimize the inconvenience for the neighbors and drivers, we will shrink the footprint and open one block between Santiago and Taraval streets on May 28.
