The goal of the Treasure Island Supplemental Transportation Study is to understand resident and worker transportation needs, outline recommended short-term public transit improvements, and plan for supplemental transportation options. 

Outreach included a survey, advisory workgroup, and focus groups.

The study supports the Treasure Island Transportation Program.

Recommendations from the study could include (and are not limited to) an on-demand shuttle, shared van, and/or ride-share subsidy to support transportation for residents and workers on the island. 


The objectives for supplemental services are connectivity, safety, community, affordability, and action. 

  • Connectivity: Improve quality and availability of transportation options to/from key destinations in San Francisco, especially for residents and workers.
  • Safety: Ensure transportation options to/from Treasure Island are safe for all community members.
  • Community: Address the community’s essential service access needs especially for low-income residents and workers.
  • Affordability: Maximize cost effectiveness for transportation users and providers and leverage existing resources.
  • Action: Prioritize strategies that have opportunities for quick and sustained implementation.


The top strategies identified through the survey, workgroup, and focus groups are:

  • Community Ambassador program
  • Microtransit shuttle pilot
  • Expanded Muni service
  • Improve bus shelters
  • Marketing and communications for existing and new mobility services 

These strategies will be prioritized and developed with implementation steps.
