Press Release: Bike Routes Moving from Ulloa to Vicente Street

Bike Route Moving from Ulloa to Vicente Street

In order to reduce conflicts between bikes, trains and vehicles on Ulloa Street, bike route changes are coming August 2020.

The bike lane on Ulloa Street between 15th Avenue and Forest Side Avenue will be moved to Vicente Street. This change is being made to address the current conflict between bikes in the bike lane passing next to L-Taraval stops while people get on and off the train. The project will also extend the existing bike lanes on Vicente Street an additional three blocks to West Portal Avenue in the eastbound direction. Finally, shared lane markings for bikes and vehicles, known as sharrows, will be extended on Forest Side from Vicente to Ulloa Street in order to connect with existing bike routes. These changes do no require parking removal.

These changes were approved by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Directors on June 15, 2018, as part of a proposal to retain the L-Taraval stop at Taraval Street and 17th Avenue.
