1 ABOUT THIS STUDY The Tenderloin-Little Saigon Community-Based Transportation Plan The Greater Tenderloin Community Study Milestones October Community based organizations (Tenderloin Housing Clinic and Southeast Asian Community Center) join the project team November Convened Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) of city agency representatives and community participants Ongoing Focus groups, stakeholder interviews, attend existing community meetings February Community workshop to identify and prioritize needs June Community workshop to prioritize possible solutions August Develop funding and implementation plans Study Purpose Partner with community-based organizations to conduct community-based transportation planning Work with community to identify and prioritize transportation needs Work with community to develop plans that can be funded (and implemented) within next few years

2 PREVIOUS STUDIES Many transportation-related studies have been prepared in the Tenderloin since 1997 Previous Studies North of Market Planning Coalition - Tenderloin 2000 Survey and Plan (1992) Department of Public Health - Tenderloin Pedestrian Safety Assessment (1997) St. Anthony s Foundation - Community Plan (2001) Tenderloin Housing Clinic - Paths to Safer Streets (2002) Department of Public Health - Tenderloin Pedestrian Safety Plan (2003) Department of Parking and Traffic - Pedestrian Safety Plan (2005). Key Findings from Past Studies Transportation issues are a major safety and quality of life issue Pedestrian environment can be dangerous, uncomfortable, and hostile There is a tension between the needs of cars and pedestrians. Cars seem to have been put first. Data We Collected / Analyzed Transit crowding Transit reliability Pedestrian conditions Pedestrian safety Traffic circulation scheme Traffic volumes and congestion Bus Stop Conditions Pedestrian Volumes

3 HOW TENDERLOIN RESIDENTS GET AROUND The transportation profile of the Tenderloin is unique within San Francisco Tenderloin Residents Own Fewer Cars than the Average San Franciscan What We Heard from You Many people reported that they don t drive and don t own a car Many people reported that they walk for most of their trips How Tenderloin Residents Get Around 59% 3% 18% 20% Auto Transit Walk Bike 100% 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% How Tenderloin Residents Get Around Tenderloin Residents vs. All San Franciscans Auto Transit Walk Bike Tenderloin Citywide Key Technical Findings 82% of Tenderloin households do not have a car Most trips made by Tenderloin residents are by walking Tenderloin residents travel patterns are very different from the average San Franciscan Tenderloin residents are much more likely to walk, bike, and take transit Tenderloin households are much less likely to own a car People who work in the Tenderloin are more likely to drive than are Tenderloin residents

4 TRANSIT Transit reliability is the main problem with transit in the Tenderloin Frequency of Muni Service What We Heard From You The biggest problem with transit is bus bunching and buses not coming on time. Bus stops are unpleasant and unsafe places to wait. Transit fares are expensive for low income individuals. Bus drivers can be impatient with elderly passengers. Key Technical Findings Supply of transit is good Muni service is frequent relative to other San Francisco neighborhoods Regional transit routes (BART, Golden Gate Transit) are nearby 24-hour service is available The Muni routes serving the Tenderloin are less reliable than in other neighborhoods. % of Capacity Crowding on Muni Routes Serving the Tenderloin AX 16BX L Route % of Capacity at Maximum Load Point Muni Standard (85%) Average of All Muni Routes (63%) Muni Standard (80%) Average of All Muni Routes (66%) Reliability of Muni Routes Serving the Tenderloin % of time at scheduled headway % of time headways are spaced correctly AX 16BX Route 38L Buses are more crowded in the Tenderloin than in other neighborhoods. Many bus stops have cleanliness problems Though Muni offers a Lifeline Fast Pass to low income individuals for $35, many people don t know about it

5 PEDESTRIAN CONDITIONS AND SAFETY Making walking safer and more pleasant Awkward Intersections and Poorly Marked Crosswalks Contribute to the sense that cars dominate the neighborhood Pedestrian Conditions and Amenities Sidewalks are often narrow or obstructed by large objects Pedestrian Collisions What we heard from you Improve pedestrian safety and security Traffic seems too fast Concerns for personal security Sidewalks need more maintenance The neighborhood seems oriented for cars and commuters instead of residents Better lighting of the sidewalks is needed Key Technical Findings The number of people walking in the Tenderloin is quite high The land uses and building types in the neighborhood support walking Most intersections have basic pedestrian amenities Pedestrian scale lighting is missing The Tenderloin has a higher rate of pedestrian collisions than other San Francisco neighborhoods There are no particular hot spots where pedestrians are involved in many collisions Pedestrians and cars each cause about half the collisions. The most common causes of car collisions with pedestrians are running a red light, speeding, or unsafe backing up Muni shelters don t provide much space for waiting passengers

6 TRAFFIC CIRCULATION Tenderloin area streets are primary routes to/from freeways and downtown One-Way Traffic Circulation System What We Heard from You Traffic conditions reduce pedestrian safety traffic speeds seem high Streets seem unsafe due to traffic Cars don t always yield the right of way to pedestrians in intersections Neighborhood streets need a better balance between cars and pedestrians, transit riders, and bicyclists Key Technical Findings Tenderloin streets are designed to serve pass-through traffic traveling to and from freeways and downtown Nearly all streets are one-way pairs designed to increase speeds Traffic congestion in the Tenderloin is minimal Of law violations, cars are most frequently cited for speeding, running red lights, and unsafe maneuvering

7 PARKING On- and off-street parking spaces Existing Off-Street Parking Spaces Bicycle Circulation What We Heard from You Reduce double-parking Some loading zones are unnecessary As new housing is is added, more parking is is needed for new residents Employees who drive to to work in in the Tenderloin typically park in in lots off On-street lotsspaces should be prioritized for small business patrons On-street spaces should be prioritized for small business patrons Key Technical Findings Key Technical On-street parking Findings is reduced during commute periods by tow-away lanes On-street parking is reduced during commute periods by tow-away Because lanes the Tenderloin is close to downtown, significant numbers of commuters Because the park Tenderloin the neighborhood is close to downtown, significant numbers of Some commuters blocks park have in high the neighborhood numbers of loading/unloading spaces Some blocks have high numbers of loading/unloading spaces What We Heard from You Bicycle riding on the sidewalk is a common interference with pedestrians More bicycle lanes would help to reduce sidewalk riding Key Technical Findings No bicycle facilities run directly through the Tenderloin

8 WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT? Tradeoffs are inevitable when making changes to improve transportation. Improvements to one mode of transportation may negatively impact another mode. Place place a dot where you think the balance should be struck. Prioritize parking spaces for shoppers Prioritize parking spaces for commuters Faster travel for cars Faster travel for transit Ease of driving in the Tenderloin Ease of walking in the Tenderloin

9 WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT? Tradeoffs are inevitable when making changes to improve transportation. Improvements to one mode of transportation may negatively impact another mode. Please place a dot where you think the balance should be struck. Maintain all traffic lanes for cars Dedicate some lanes for buses or bicycles Room for on-street parking spaces More room for Muni bus stops Room for on-street parking spaces Shorter crossing distances across intersections

10 HOW DO YOU USE MUNI? We would like to know more about how you use Muni. About how many days a week do you use Muni? What are the two Muni routes you use the most? 38 Local 38 Limited 5 Fulton 19 Polk 31 Balboa 27 Bryant 16 Express Other Route

11 PRIORITIZING TRANSPORTATION NEEDS Place a dot on the three most important transportation needs to address in the Tenderloin Dots Need Pedestrian safety Pedestrian conditions Reduce speed of car traffic Reduce amount of car traffic Description Take steps to reduce the frequency and severity of pedestrian collisions in the neighborhood Take steps to make walking more pleasant and appealing in the neighborhood Take steps to reduce speeds of cars traveling on neighborhood streets Take steps to reduce the amount of car traffic in the neighborhood Improve reliability of transit Reduce cost of transit for low- income people Improve bus stops Improve conditions for bicycling Increase availability of onstreet parking Reduce crowding on Muni Take steps to reduce bunching of buses so they arrive at stops more evenly spaced. This makes the amount of time you wait more predictable. Increase the availability of Muni s Lifeline Pass, which allows lowincome people to purchase a regular monthly pass for $35 Take steps to improve the condition, comfort, security, and amount of information at bus stops Improve conditions for bicycling to improve cyclist safety and reduce the number of cyclists that ride on the sidewalk Better manage parking to reduce double parking and make it easier for customers of Tenderloin businesses to find on-street spaces Take steps to improve the capacity of Muni routes as they run through the Tenderloin, as well as reducing bus bunching, which contributes to crowding.

12 PRIORITIZING POTENTIAL PROJECTS Some money may available in the next few months. What should we ask for? The ideas listed below have all been mentioned in previous community studies of the Tenderloin. Please place dots next to the projects that you would like to see happen soon! Dots Project Improve lighting of the sidewalks Make intersections safer with more curb bulbs and ramps Re-time traffic signals to favor transit and slow cars Install red-light running cameras at some stop lights More cleaning of sidewalks and bus stops Expand availability of Lifeline Fast Pass for low-income individuals Pave the Geary / O Farrell bus-only lane with color to keep cars out Install NextBus Muni real-time arrival information at stops to tell how many minutes until the next bus arrives Other Ideas? Write them here.

13 PROBLEM AREAS What transportation-related problems do you see in the Tenderloin? What are the specific places that pedestrians conditions and safety need to be improved? Which bus stops are the most crowded or feel least comfortable? Where does traffic seem to speed? Please indicate problem areas on the map. Do you see something we missed? Do you have something to add? Please describe it here.

14 TENDERLOIN WISHLIST What transportation-related improvements you would like to see? Use a dot to indicate the heart or center of the neighborhood. The next workshop will focus on solutions to problems. If you have an idea you d like us to consider, please describe it here, or indicate it on the map. Where is the heart of the Tenderloin?
