Coordinated Action to Speed Up Buses

Digital Discourse


Market Street in San Francisco, Ferry Building visible

San Francisco has seen great success in prioritizing buses on local roads, delivering up to 31% travel time savings up to 60% ridership growth. But in many places, where transit agencies have little say about roadway design, it has been slow or impossible to deliver transit-priority projects such as dedicated bus lanes and transit signal priority. In 2021, the Bay Area Transit Transformation Action Plan promised bold action on increasing priority for public transit in our roadways, which has inspired a new focus on the institutional reforms, funding, and leadership needed to deliver faster and more reliable buses. SPUR will release a policy report detailing specific recommendations to get these projects moving. Come learn about both SPUR’s recommendations and forthcoming state and regional efforts to get buses out of traffic.
