Those traveling on the corridor are advised to stay alert and allow more travel time during construction. Polk Street, one block east of Van Ness Avenue, is a recommended alternative for people traveling by bicycle in the area.

At times, Muni bus stops along Van Ness Avenue and its side streets need to be relocated to perform construction for the Van Ness Improvement Project. You can stay up to date about bus stop changes along the project area, and the rest of the city, by visiting the SFMTA’s Temporary Stop Relocations Map. The map marks the original location of any relocated stop. When you click on the stop’s marker, you will find additional information including a description of where the temporary stop is now located and the duration of the relocation.

On the week of October 7, the northbound Muni bus stop at McAllister is scheduled to move from just south of the Van Ness Avenue and McAllister Street intersection, to just north of that intersection, between Golden Gate and McAllister streets. SFMTA.com/TempStops
