Summary Information

This study examined a proposed 2.2 mile transit priority corridor in San Francisco that would incorporate many features of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) including transit only lanes, transit priority signals, reduced stop frequency, and other bus stop and pedestrian improvements.

The 22 Fillmore Transit Priority Project included both service changes and capital investments on 16th Street, from Church Street to Third Street. The transit priority and pedestrian safety improvements included transit-only lanes, transit bulbs, new traffic and pedestrian signals, and new streetscape amenities. San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) planned to paint the transit-only lanes with red paint to clearly delineate the lanes. The proposed corridor also included extending the overhead contact system (OCS) on 16th Street from Kansas Street to Third Street to allow for zero-emission transit service into Mission Bay.

The SFMTA engineering staff developed capital costs for the project scheduled to open in 2019.

The table below provides the costs for each of the phases and elements of the project features including the number of units and the unit costs for each feature. The SFMTA engineering personnel also developed maintenance costs for the project. Each maintenance item included the unit cost, units, number of units, and year of implementation. A benefit-to-cost analysis arrayed all construction and maintenance costs by year and discounted them to present value.
