Working Group Formed to Study Improving Late Night/Early Morning Transportation

Muni at night

In June 2014, the Office of Economic and Workforce Development and the San Francisco Entertainment Commission formed a Late Night Transportation Working Group comprised of local transportation providers, representatives from nighttime and early morning businesses, nightlife advocates, labor unions with employees who work late nights or early mornings, and other stakeholders interested in late night transportation issues.

Over the next six months, the working group will create a Late Night Integrated Transportation Plan to improve late night and early morning transportation options for San Francisco workers, residents, and visitors. At the end of the year, working group staff will present a report to the Board of Supervisors that identifies short-, medium-, and long-term strategies to improve late night and early morning transportation to and from businesses in San Francisco.

Below, you can find the working group’s schedule of meetings, relevant documents and the group’s full roster. Please send any inquiries about the working group — including requests to be notified about future meeting agendas — to latenighttransit@sfgov.org.

Understanding New Construction Projects in Your Neighborhood

New construction projects are bringing much-needed housing to San Francisco, but you may have questions or concerns about the impact that a particular project might have on your nearby nightlife business.

In order to address any concerns you might have, it’s important to engage with the developer of the project and the San Francisco Planning Department; engagement can be most effective if it happens as early in the planning process as possible. Thankfully, the Planning Department offers a number of tools that can help keep you informed about construction projects in your neighborhood.

Update: The survey has concluded. Thank you for participating.

Earlier this year, the Office of Economic and Workforce Development and the San Francisco Entertainment Commission formed a Late Night Transportation Working Group comprised of local transportation providers, representatives from nighttime and early morning businesses, nightlife advocates, labor unions, and other stakeholders in order to study ways to improve late night and early morning transportation to, from, and within San Francisco.

As part of this work, we have launched a brief online survey to learn more about the transportation needs of workers, residents and visitors who travel to/from/within San Francisco between midnight and 5am. The survey also provides a chance to offer your ideas and suggestions for improving transit during these hours.

Take our short survey here.

The survey is also available in Spanish and Chinese.

Your participation in this survey is extremely valuable for our work because it will help us better understand transportation needs during the hours when options are currently the most limited. Anyone who responds to the survey will have a chance to win one of three Clipper transit cards worth $50.

The survey is open through Sunday, October 12, 2014.
