The Van Ness BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) project will be at two hearings tomorrow — speak up if you can! After considering four alternatives, city agencies have agreed on one “locally preferred alternative” with buses running down the center of Van Ness.
Walk SF supports this design, which means faster public transit and safer conditions on a critical corridor through the city.
The design also includes: Fewer cars and calmer traffic on Van Ness; wider sidewalks at corners (bulb-outs); pedestrian countdown signals at all intersections; pedestrian lighting; elimination of almost all left-hand turns, which are dangerous for people crossing the street; opportunities for greening; and more comfortable bus stops.
