SF ‘Slow Streets’ Map

The SFMTA’s new ‘Slow Streets’ program is designed to limit through traffic on certain residential streets and allow them to be used more as a shared space for foot and bicycle traffic.  Throughout the city, dozens of corridors have been planned or implemented as a ‘Slow Streets’.

Obviously, due to COVID and the current terrible, smoky air in California, you definitely need to wear a mask while enjoying these walking areas.  But you will notice a lot more outdoor seating areas and parklets on these streets!

Also due to the current unhealthy air, slow streets in the SOMA have been delayed.  For more on all current and new project visit: https://www.sfmta.com/projects/slow-streets-program

    Despite having a few signs on the street (which some drivers seem to keep moving or running over), 20th St is no safer for bikes or walking than it was before. I’m not sure if these slow streets are more effective in other neighborhoods, but I was really disappointed with the ones in the Mission.

    The only safe change I’ve seen in our neighborhood is that blocked off area on Valencia Street.
