Connecting San Francisco's Northeast Neighborhoods

White Paper August 14, 2013

The northeast neighborhoods of San Francisco — North Beach, Telegraph Hill, Russian Hill, Fisherman’s Wharf and the edges of Chinatown — have some of the city’s highest densities of residents, workers and tourist activities. Yet there are currently no major plans to increase transit capacity serving the area. SPUR convened a community workshop to assess transit needs in these neighborhoods. The group's findings included strong interest in extending the T-Third light rail line to a North Beach station, to the Fisherman’s Wharf area and possibly to other neighborhoods.
