Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP) > Muni Rapid > 30 Stockton Proposals
30 Stockton between Van Ness Avenue and Market Street (30 Stockton, 45 Union-Stockton, 8X/AX/BX Bayshore Expresses)
Muni’s 30 Stockton bus route carries about 28,000 daily customers on an average weekday. The route’s study corridor is 2.2 miles long and includes Van Ness Avenue, North Point Street, Columbus Avenue, Stockton Street, Sutter Street, and Kearny Street. Portions of the 45 Union-Stockton and 8X/AX/BX Bayshore Expresses also travel through the study area and would benefit from the proposed improvements.
Within the study corridor, the 30 Stockton serves over 17,600 customers. Combined with the 45 Union-Stockton and the 8X/AX/BX Bayshore Expresses, within the study corridor the routes serve over 27,500 customers during an average weekday.
Within the study area, the 30 Stockton operates at an average speed of 5.6 miles per hour during peak periods. The main sources of delay are closely spaced bus stops, narrow traffic lanes in Chinatown, and traffic congestion.
Travel Time Reduction Proposal Overview
In order to reduce transit travel times and improve reliability, the SFMTA proposes a toolkit of measures within the study area. The proposals include:
Together, the proposed changes are anticipated to reduce the travel time of the 30 Stockton by about 3.5 minutes in each direction (seven minutes total) within the study area (15 percent reduction), improving the average operating speed to 6.6 miles per hour and improving service reliability. Transit signal priority improvements are anticipated to save an additional two minutes in each direction. Other changes such as operational improvements and network enhancements would further improve travel times along the corridor and add valuable customer amenities such as NextBus displays. The travel time savings would also reduce operating costs on the line and allow for service to be cost effectively increased.
