Third Street is a major thoroughfare connecting Dogpatch, Bayview, and Hunter’s Point neighborhoods to Mission Bay, SoMa, and Downtown San Francisco. Residents and community members in Dogpatch, Bayview, and Hunter’s Point have raised concerns about delays and reliability of T Third light rail service on Third Street. The community has expressed desire to return bus service to the corridor ahead of signal improvements that will reduce delays when the Central Subway opens. At the request of Transportation Authority Board Member Walton (District 10), the Transportation Authority is leading the District 10 15-Third Street Bus Study to evaluate re-establishing the 15 Third Street Muni bus route.
This project is funded and led by the Transportation Authority in partnership with the SFMTA.
Cost and Funding
The Transportation Authority's Neighborhood Program is funding the District 10 15 Third Street Bus Study with $30,000 in Prop K sales tax funds. This study was requested by Transportation Authority Board Member Shamann Walton (District 10).
