SFCTA Van Ness Avenue Bus Rapid Transit Project San Francisco, CA

A collaborative effort among the consultants and staff from several San Francisco agencies, this project involves a feasibility study for a bus rapid transit (BRT) system along Van Ness Avenue, and preparation of a joint EIS/EIR. The project alternatives involve center running (center or side platforms) and side running bus lanes, all of which will include low floor buses, far side stops, and a signal priority system. Five Muni bus routes and seven Golden Gate bus routes currently operate along Van Ness Avenue, with approximately 51 buses per hour in each direction during the peak hour.

CHS Consulting Group was responsible for directing the traffic, transit, and parking analyses of the project. CHS also worked with the SFCTA staff on the travel forecasting task, and with SFMTA staff on the transit operations and SYNCHRO traffic simulation analysis for the project corridor, including five parallel streets. CHS coordinated with MUNI staff on the modifications to MUNI bus operations along the corridor, and with P&V on the VISSIM micro-simulation analysis. This project is currently in the EIR/EIS phase.
