Projects and planning
The Capital Programs and Construction Division works closely with our contractors on various projects throughout the city to both enhance the safety and reliability of our transit system and to improve the transit system for future generations of San Francisans. To reach that goal, we must perform construction not only on the streets, but on overhead lines and subways as well. This construction can cause temporary inconvenience to the public, although we always plan the project well in advance to minimize the impacts. Here are some updates on the SFMTA’s major construction projects:
The Central Subway Project will extend T Third Line service from 4th and King streets to Chinatown. With stops in South of Market (SoMa), Yerba Buena/Moscone Center, Union Square and Chinatown, the Central Subway will vastly improve transit options and significantly reduce travel times. The project has completed environmental review and final design and is now under construction. It is expected to open for customers in 2019.
The Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP) is an 18-month effort to comprehensively review and evaluate the current Muni transit system and recommend measures to make service more attractive to the public and more economical to operate. A partnership between the SFMTA and the City Controller, the TEP is designed to strengthen Muni's ability to respond to current travel needs, provide a blueprint for future service, apply best practices to service delivery, and promote the system's long-term financial stability. Data collected by the TEP project is available. You may submit comments on the TEP project (PDF).
There are various rail, overhead wire and station improvements that the division conducts to ensure safe and efficient operation of Muni vehicles and safe passage for Muni customers.
Urban Planning Initiatives (UPI) is an SFMTA program that coordinates closely with the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) focusing on transportation planning for major developments and programs in San Francisco.
Key projects led by UPI include:
The Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass Program is testing a pass that would also be valid on BART within San Francisco. This information is for the benefit of customers already part of the project. Registrations have closed.
The following projects are conducted by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority in partnership with the SFMTA:
