On April 20th, the SFMTA Board of Directors is voting on two Temporary Emergency Transit Lanes projects.
- Temporary high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes on Park Presidio and Lombard along the 28 route. This is an innovative partnership with Caltrans to provide transit priority on our city streets that also happen to be state highways. The current proposal allows private vehicles with two or more occupants to use these lanes, which will likely help but doesn’t go far enough. Given that will allow ride hails (which cause much of our traffic) to use them, we are asking for a minimum of 3 occupants in private vehicles.
- Temporary Emergency Transit Lanes on the 1 California. Based on community outreach, these lanes have been adjusted in terms of what hours they’re enforced. We think this is an important start but want to see a fuller project as downtown traffic returns.
We need your support for these transit priority projects!
Sign up below so we can coordinate with full instructions, talking points, and timing. The meeting begins at 1:00pm. We don’t know what time these items will come up, but will be watching and can let you know.
