    • Systems for Transportation Goals
    • Presidio Parkway (A)~ Emphasis on "not a freeway"~ Replace Doyle Drive Seismic Stability Aesthetics~ Timeline: Temp. roadway complete Project complete by 2015
    • Geary St. BRT Plan (B)~ Geary currently does notaccommodate muti-modal system~ Separate buses from traffic Outside-only lanes Center lane, 2 medians Center lanes, opposing buses separated by single median~ Timeline: Awaiting open house/ Draft plan by 2013
    • Van Ness BRT Plan (C)~ Improve from Van Ness (atLombard) to S. Van Ness (at Mission)~ Separate buses from traffic~ Improve stop shelters~ Pedestrian safety Reduce crossing distances Traffic signals approaching BRT~Timeline: End of year initial deadline Begin operation in 2017
    • Central Subways Plan (D) 1.7 mile extension of MUNI T 3rdline~ 4 new stations~ 2nd phase of SFMTA’s Third Stlight rail transit project~ Cleaner, faster~ Timeline: Design, right of way finalized Begin operation 2018-19

    • Factors contributing to the development of the transportation system● terrain● limited space● earthquakes● public outlook
    • TerrainTwin Peaks is located in the center of San Francisco city
    • ● There are 44 separate hills throughout the city of San Francisco● This hilly terrain adds some difficulty to creating a transit system throughout the city● The highest is Mount Davidson which peaks at 928 ft
    • Limited Space ● The city itself is a total of 271.9 sq miles ● This causes a need to develop a better transit and infrastructure system in order to develop ● Mission Bay is an example of redeveloping land to improve the city
    • Earthquakes● Causes damage to infrastructure and transportation systems● Frequent earthquakes● 62% chance of a 6.7 or greater earthquake by 2032● Earthquakes need to be taken into account when planning or improving transit within and around the city● Presidio Parkway is one example of increasing the seismic stability of the current transit system
    • The 1906earthquakemeasured a 7.9 onthe momentmagnitude scale
    • Transit First Policy● The transit first policy was adopted by the city of San Francisco in 1973
