Fall semester brings transportation changes
August 18, 2010 -- Those returning to SF State for the fall semester will find transportation changes that could affect the daily commute.
Changes for the fall semester include:
Muni M-Line: Light rail service between West Portal and Balboa Park Stations, both outbound and inbound, has been suspended throughout the summer because of a construction project to upgrade St. Francis Circle. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is operating an alternative service via bus from West Portal Station (outbound) and from Balboa Park Station (inbound) to the campus. Buses from West Portal stop at the University’s main entrance at 19th Avenue and Holloway, just in front of the Station Café. Buses to West Portal stop on the east side of 19th Avenue, just north of Holloway.
The SFMTA anticipates that it will resume M-Line light rail service in early September. It will post information about service resumption in its stations. More information about the project, including a complete description of all available Muni services, can be found at: www.sfmta.com/stfranciscircle
SF State shuttle: To improve the commute between the Daly City BART station and campus, the University has worked with BART and SFMTA to relocate the SF State shuttle stop at the station. Shuttles will now stop in the first bus bay on the station's east side (where the Muni 28-line previously stopped). The 28-line buses will stop just behind the shuttles, allowing SF State commuters to easily take either the 28 bus or the shuttle. For more information about the SF State shuttle, visit: www.sfsu.edu/~parking/text/shuttle.html
Parking on 19th Avenue: Those who drive to campus, should note that the SFMTA has made the east side of 19th Avenue between Holloway Avenue and Winston Drive a no parking zone. Cars parked in this area may be ticketed and/or towed. For more information on campus parking, visit www.sfsu.edu/~parking/text/parking.html
