It will significantly improve transit service in one of the busiest bus corridors in San Francisco.

The two-mile BRT line will operate in dedicated lanes along U.S. Highway 101/Van Ness Avenue, a key route for commuters traveling between the Golden Gate Bridge and downtown San Francisco.

The project includes nine side-platform stations with low-floor bus boarding and passenger shelters, as well as traffic signal priority, pedestrian improvements, and the purchase of new buses.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is receiving approximately $45 million through the FTA’s Capital Investment Grant (CIG) program, as well as $30 million in FTA Bus and Bus Facilities funds toward the $223 million project.

The remaining cost is being covered by other federal, state, and local sources.
