  20. 20. Systems for Transportation Goals
  21. 21. Presidio Parkway (A)~ Emphasis on "not a freeway"~ Replace Doyle Drive Seismic Stability Aesthetics~ Timeline: Temp. roadway complete Project complete by 2015
  22. 22. Geary St. BRT Plan (B)~ Geary currently does not accommodate 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
  23. 23. Van Ness BRT Plan (C)~ Improve from Van Ness (at Lombard) to S. Van Ness (at Mission)~ Separate buses from traffic~ Improve stop shelters~ Pedestrian safety Reduce crossing distances Traffic signals approaching BRT~Timeline:
  24. 24. Central Subways Plan (D)1.7 mile extension of MUNI T 3rd line~ 4 new stations~ 2nd phase of SFMTA’s Third St light rail transit project~ Cleaner, faster~ Timeline: Design, right of way finalized Begin operation 2018-19

  27. 27. Factors contributing to the development of the transportation system• terrain• limited space• earthquakes• public outlook
  28. 28. TerrainTwin Peaks is located in the center of San Francisco city
  29. 29. • 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
  30. 30. 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
  31. 31. 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
  32. 32. The 1906 earthquake measured a 7.9 on the moment magnitude scale
  33. 33. Transit First Policy• The transit first policy was adopted by the city of San Francisco in 1973
