We’re planning a full week of events to bring fun to transit and solidify the self-identity of being a proud transit rider.
We’ll be getting in touch with everyday transit riders throughout the workweek via street-side outreach hubs. Drop by one of our tables at Muni, BART and Caltrain stops to share your #WhyIRide stories, join in the commute cheer, and grab some snacks!
Show up to show your support for robust transit in San Francisco! The Kick Off, hosted by Supervisor Aaron Peskin, will include VIP speakers as well as regular riders like you and me. Come learn more about transit week and what San Francisco Transit Riders is working on to improve mobility in San Francisco!
Think you know everything about SF transit? Come test your knowledge at trivia night! Each bar below will host a special transit-themed portion of their regularly scheduled programming.

When enough riders speak up, the City listens! Muni is planning to improve the 8 Bayshore, and we’re going to make sure the riders are heard. Sen. Scott Weiner will kick off our evening, we’ll discuss the biggest issues facing riders of the 8 Bayshore, and we’ll follow up all the talking with some action: writing messages the city will listen to. Together, we can push the city to make real changes to the 8 Bayshore that we want! (Food will be provided.)

We’ll be joined by the Warriors organization to kick off our crawl at the Sea Star at 3rd St. and 20th St. at 6:00pm. At 7:15 we’ll start heading out to Stop 2, Il Parata, a San Francisco institution - a dive bar with an affinity for DJs and dancing. They have basic bar food on offer, and a ton of room, including a hidden second back patio with a fountain. (If we lose you here, you’ll end up paying cover charge to enjoy their monthly salsa party!) Around 8:30 we’ll head to Stop 3, the legendary Lucky 13 - rumors of their demise have been greatly exaggerated. Impressive beer list, pool table, and a small side patio.
We’ll have flyers (with information about us and about the 22 Fillmore upgrades) for folks to hand out as a conversation starter with other bar patrons, and with folks we meet at the bus stops and on the bus.
We’ll be riding the San Francisco Bay Ferry from the Ferry Building to Jack London Square in Oakland. On board you’ll have the chance to interact with a planner from the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) and enjoy fabulous views of San Francisco, the Bay Bridge and Oakland. Once we arrive at Jack London Square, we’ll meet up with our friends at Transport Oakland to learn about their transportation priorities for Oakland and how they’re pushing to make them a reality.
Join us for the final Sunday Streets of the season! We’re taking over a full streetblock chock-full of activities to engage families about all things transit.
