Mission Bay Updates
SCHEDULE ADJUSTMENTS COMING AUGUST 29TH
Several adjustments to the MB Shuttle schedules will start on Monday, August 29th to improve reliability.
The new Timetables are now available (see links below).
Here's a quick overview of adjustments:
1. The BART stop for early morning LOOP service will be located in the white passenger loading zone on 5th Street just before Market Street. (This is a loading zone between the side entrance to San Francisco Centre and the corner) Shuttles will stop here to load and unload riders between 6am and 7:05am only. After 7:05am, all shuttles stop on Mission Street.
2. We've added time to runs after 8am and after 5pm to reflect new traffic conditions. The EAST route buses will also avoid Townsend Street after 5pm. Caltrain riders will get off the shuttle at 4th & China Basin (across from the Library). If there are no Caltrain riders, drivers may deviate from the route and return to Mission Street either via the Third St. Bridge or 7th Street, depending on traffic. Morning EAST route buses will also return to Mission Street via Third or Fourth Street.
While these schedule adjustments will improve our overall performance, they don't solve some of the other issues which have arisen. We're looking at options to address the bottlenecks occuring around 4th & Townsend, as this area will be severely constrained for the foreseeable future. We're looking at solutions that re-route buses as well as the possibility of operating from a different BART station. As always, your feedback is both wanted and welcome! The 'flex routing' East buses will be using over the next few weeks should inform us as we plan for the future.
