Introduction

The Bayview Hunters Point Mobility Study focused on improving residents’ access to groceries, health appointments, after-school programs, and other important services. 

The study convened a Transportation Working Group comprised of local leaders, representatives from community-based organizations, and a technical team in 2012. After consideration of many options, working group members recommended a vehicle sharing and a volunteer driver program to best serve community needs. The working group developed a Business Plan in 2013, outlining the pilot implementation approach for a van sharing service.

The Transportation Working Group later formed a Community Advisory Board and implemented a van sharing pilot serving Bayview Community Business Organizations. The pilot ended in June 2017 but some of the mobility services have continued under the direction of Bayview Senior Services.

Project/Study Partners

The Transportation Authority led the study, partnering with the San Francisco Department of Public Health’s Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Zone initiative, B-MAGIC, a number of community-based organizations, and UCSF’s SF Health Improvement Partnerships. 

Cost and Funding 

This study was funded by Caltrans and San Francisco’s Prop K transportation sales tax funds.
