Create a separate loading zone for commuter shuttles in Noe Valley to reduce congestion
This petition made change with 318 supporters!
San Francisco has been a transit-first city for more than 40 years. By an order of magnitude, commuter shuttles serve the transportation needs of many more residents than the parking that is impacted when new white loading zones are created. Establishing new white loading zones as needed to facilitate the flow of traffic should take priority over the preservation of existing parking that serves private automobiles.
Commuter shuttles over 35 feet in length are required to travel on state-designated arterial streets. In the Noe Valley neighborhood, 24th Street is the only east-west arterial, so shuttle activity is concentrated on that corridor. Currently, a shared Muni zone at 24th & Church is the only eastbound shuttle stop on 24th Street.
We, the undersigned, agree with the SFMTA’s findings that the current shared stop is not long enough to accommodate the number of shuttles and Muni buses in the morning, leading to Muni blockages and safety issues. We strongly support the SFMTA’s proposal to establish a separate, longer shuttle white zone along 24th Street. Many possibilities have been considered, and this is the most practical solution to the problem.
