The Geneva-Harney Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line is a proposed service envisioned to provide existing and future neighborhoods along the San Mateo-San Francisco County border with a bus connection to the border area’s key regional transit system hubs. The corridor extends from Balboa Park BART/Muni Station in the west to Hunters Point Shipyard in the east, including a connection to the Bayshore Caltrain Station. The study conducts conceptual feasibility planning and design work and initiates a cross-jurisdictional, community consensus-building process to prepare the bus project for the environmental clearance phase.
The Geneva-Harney BRT Feasibility Study is conducted via partnership between the San Francisco County Transportation Authority and local and regional partners. The Transportation Authority leads the inter-agency coordination effort with all affected land use jurisdictions and transportation agencies to develop local consensus on the proposed designs and service.
Technical Partners Advisory Committee
The Study is supported by a Technical Partners Advisory Committee, comprised of the following agencies:
- San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA)
- San Francisco Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII)
- San Francisco Public Works (SFPW)
- San Francisco Planning Department
- San Francisco Office of the Mayor
- City of Daly City
- California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)
The project is also guided by a Community Advisory Committee, comprised of residents and workers of San Francisco, Brisbane, and Daly City who use the Geneva-Harney Corridor.
OVERALL STUDY OBJECTIVES
- Develop and illustrate feasible design options for bus rapid transit in the Geneva-Harney corridor.
- Develop an interim solution for faster, more reliable transit on Geneva.
- Gauge community support in Daly City, Brisbane, and San Francisco for new bus service in the Geneva-Harney corridor.
- Begin community and agency dialogue on BRT and routing alternatives in the corridor, noting benefits and tradeoffs.
COORDINATION WITH RELATED PROJECTS
Several related transportation and land use projects are advancing at the same time as this study, including Bayshore
Several related transportation and land use projects are advancing at the same time as this study, including Bayshore Station Relocation Study, the Brisbane Baylands development project, and the Visitacion Valley/Schlage Lock development project. Planning processes for those projects are ongoing and the project plans and designs may continue to evolve. This study will coordinate with related projects to ensure that the designs developed in this study are compatible with the other efforts. One of the functions of the proposed Technical Partners Advisory Committee (TPAC) is to ensure that this coordination occurs.
