Effective immediately, MB Shuttles will increase seating capacities from 8 to 11 seats per run. Seats on one side of the bus will maintain 6′ of distance from the next rider; seats on the other side will provide for 3′ of distance, which is the metric UCSF shuttles have been using for a few months. This gives riders a choice if a shuttle bus is at its 8-capacity of either waiting for the next one, or being seated 3′ apart for the 10-12 min. ride. As more and more riders are vaccinated, the risks, when remaining masked and diligent, continue to decrease.
Remember: all riders must be masked both at the bus stop and while on the bus.
We continue enhanced cleaning protocols that include:
- Using CDC-recommended products and processes to clean and disinfect buses daily
- Buses are cleaned before each shift (morning and evening)
- We’re following ventilation recommendations from the A/C and vehicle manufacturers for maximum air circulation-refreshing during service
The SFCTA is finalizing its recommendations for Congestion Pricing. The proposed Congestion Pricing Zone includes Mission Bay, and would charge motorists between $7 and $14 when crossing one of the boundaries. The boundaries include Van Ness, 14th St., Mariposa, Fulton, Division and Laguna, plus exits from the Bay Bridge.
- The majority of fees (75%) would be paid by San Franciscans, whether they are residents, employees, service business (such as plumbers, personal services, professional services, visitors to the area) and others. Every San Franciscan will be affected.

In January, SFMTA installed ‘transit only’ lanes on 4th St at the bridge, and prohibited left turns from 4th St onto Berry.
Results from the preliminary evaluation are in, and these changes have been effective and no further modifications in the area are needed.
- Delays to transit decreased by 63% at 4th & Berry
- T Third St. trains are 2.5 times more likely to travel through the intersection without having to stop for a red light; and when they do have to stop, the wait time is 70% less.
- Overall T Third trains have been delayed by congestion less than 1% of the time.
Traffic patterns have shifted and we’ve adjusted the Timetables for both East and West routes accordingly. These changes begin Monday, February 8th. There are no changes to CCA or Transbay-Caltrain routes at this time.
Please check out the minor changes to the schedules:

The air you breathe while riding BART is filtered more effectively than that in the typical office or indoor setting like a grocery store or pharmacy, with an entire train car’s air being replaced about every 70 seconds.
Because the coronavirus spreads through droplets in the air when a person coughs, sneezes or even just talks, air filtration is key to stopping transmission. Wearing a mask is a first line of protection; BART’s Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system provides another safety layer.
“The BART fleet’s ventilation systems provide passengers with about 4,000 cubic feet per minute of air per car, or about 50 air changes per hour, which is substantial when compared with other public spaces,” said Daniel Cheng, Senior Vehicle Systems Engineer. “All the air is filtered before entering the passenger area.”
Overall, the air in BART trains at a given moment is about 75% filtered and 25% fresh air drawn from outside the car (it’s 80/20% on legacy trains and 70/30% on Fleet of the Future trains).
