Introduction

Golden Gate Avenue is a busy pedestrian street that serves numerous important transportation functions for San Francisco, including the 7X Muni and Golden Gate Transit Route 92 bus lines. Golden Gate Avenue is also a Vision Zero High Injury Corridor with some of the highest pedestrian and bicycle collision rates in San Francisco.

As part of the SFMTA’s Golden Gate Avenue Safety Project, the agency reduced the number of traffic lanes and constructed an eastbound buffered bike lane on Golden Gate Avenue between Polk Street and Market Street. This project was completed in December 2017. 

Cost and Funding 

This project was supported by the Transportation Authority's Neighborhood Program at the request of former District 6 Supervisor and Transportation Authority Board Member Jane Kim.
