The San Francisco County Transportation Authority Board—comprised of members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors—unanimously approved the Geary Bus Rapid Transit Project design and the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) at their meeting on Thursday, January 5, 2017.
The ultimate project design approved by the Transportation Authority reflected significant public input and culminated more than eight years of outreach by the project team to residents, community leaders, advocates and merchants from the Outer Richmond to Downtown.
Community feedback throughout the outreach process, which included over 260 stakeholder meetings, resulted in:
- Preserving a local bus stop at Collins Street and Rapid stop at Laguna Street;
- Retaining the pedestrian bridge at Webster Street;
- Preserving merchant parking in the Richmond District, including at Spruce Street, where all existing parking and loading will be maintained with a local-only bus stop; and
- Adding more safety improvements to intersections with high collision rates for pedestrians and cyclists.
