Baseball Game Traffic Reroutes and Other Transportation Options

The SFMTA advises motorists of the increased congestion in downtown San Francisco related to these special events and advises commuters to use transit, taxis, bicycles or walk and to avoid using the Bay Bridge in the two hours before or after these games.

As a reminder to fans, in order to reduce congestion on city streets after all events at AT&T Park, the SFMTA will close eastbound King Street between 3rd and 2nd streets from the seventh inning until after the post-game traffic has died down. Additionally, the northbound portion of the 4th Street (Peter R. Maloney) Bridge will be closed to all traffic except streetcars, buses, taxis and bicycles during the post-game period. Giants fans parked south of Mission Creek Channel who are heading north of the channel are encouraged to exit to the south along 3rd or 4th streets in order to avoid congestion on King and 3rd streets after AT&T Park events.

ONGOING WORK: Muni Forward: Rapid Network Improvements inUnion Square and Tenderloin Area
As part of the Muni Forward: Rapid Network Improvements project, crews from the SFMTA will continue working on adding a red surface treatment to the existing “transit only” lane on Geary Boulevard and O’Farrell Street for the 38 and 38L Geary bus routes. The newly painted red lanes will facilitate motorists to distinguish the “transit-only” lane. This project is anticipated to complete in mid-June of this year.

The paint work began on Geary Street from Powell Street and ending at Gough Street, while keeping clear of the ongoing construction for the CPMC Hospital between Van Ness Avenue and Franklin Street. Painting of O’Farrell Street, between Powell and Gough Street, will follow afterwards.

The work hours are between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.

During these work hours, bus stops will be relocated. Customers are advised to pay attention to notices at the affected bus stops. SFMTA personnel will be onsite to direct passengers of any changes. Customers are advise to plan extra travel time due to the construction work.
