When a raucous meeting about plans for the L-Taraval Improvement Project did not go as the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) had hoped, they went back to the drawing board to reassess the plan and have now scheduled another meeting.
Press Release from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), August 1, 2019.
The SF Municipal Transportation Agency is holding two meetings in August to show the public final details of the Geary Bus Rapid Transit plan slated to begin construction in the fall.
Three light-rail train stops and 36 more parking spaces may be permanently removed from
Taraval Street, between 15th and 46th avenues, if the SF Municipal Transportation
Agency’s (SFMTA) board of directors approves a final plan for the L-Taraval streetcar line
at its Dec. 5 meeting.
Letters to the Editor of the Sunset Beacon.
The SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) presented to the public on Oct. 18 its

and local merchants are ignored as being minor disruptions to the agency’s self-proclaimed higher ideals.
In the ballot pamphlet supporting their position, the 10 supervisors said, “Proposition E
will make Muni much more accountable for service delivered. It will take strong steps to
reduce traffic by finally making transit a real alternative to the automobile, and it will
ensure Muni is fully funded to meet the City’s transit needs for years to come.”
None of those goals have come to pass.
