Better Market Street Survey is Live

After two well-attended open houses, City planners seek yet more input on the new concept design for Better Market Street — the transformative overhaul of our busiest downtown corridor. Take a moment to learn more about the current proposal and share your thoughts today with this 10-15 minute survey.

What do you think?

SF Bicycle Coalition members flooded both open houses earlier this month to talk directly with City planners on every detail of Better Market Street from the new, sidewalk-level bike lane idea to Muni service to desired landscaping. On a long table, a map of the full, 2.2-mile long corridor was displayed for attendees to write or draw the improvements they want to see. Once again, there was strong support for near-term improvements at key intersections along Market Street.

SF Bicycle Coalition member Paul Valdez records his comment for near-term improvements at Market and Sansome.

Dozens of presentation boards lined the room to share proposals on everything from the sidewalk-level bike lane to turn restrictions.

This was the first public meeting since 2013, so there was plenty of new information to share. Overall, feedback was positive, and, more than anything, people are excited to see this project move forward.

Starting with this survey, there will be plenty more ways to get involved as Better Market Street moves forward. Make sure to complete the survey today and stay tuned; we know it’s going to take a lot of members to win the truly bike-friendly Market Street of our dreams.
