In February, the SFMTA collected requests from shuttle service providers and resident suggestions on what stops should be included in the pilot through an interactive website and open houses. We reviewed requests from shuttle service providers and suggestions from residents to develop a pilot network of zones that is a combination of:
- Zones requested by shuttle service providers
- Zones requested by residents
- Alternative zones within a few blocks of requested zone locations
- New white zones in locations where demand is high but sharing with Muni would likely disrupt Muni service for inclusion in the pilot network
Zones with Muni service every 10 minutes or less, most zones along Muni’s busiest routes and lines, and flag stops (stops that are in the street, away from the curb) on the bicycle network were not included in the proposed pilot network of shared bus zones.
