The SFMTA thanks everyone who attended the Virtual Community Meeting on Sept. 16 or provided feedback on the 43 Masonic and 44 O’Shaughnessy temporary emergency transit lanes. These lanes will help protect public health, particularly for those who continue to rely on transit to make essential trips, by reducing crowding and travel times for riders along the entire routes.
