The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency is starting its public outreach to develop an initial proposal to improve the reliability and accessibility of the M Ocean View rail line.
Called the M Ocean View Transit and Safety Project, the SFMTA is asking M-line passengers to take a survey that will be used for the agency to find out their needs as well as what improvements they would like to see in the future. The M carries over 21,000 passengers and is identified as a priority for improvements in the Muni Equity Strategy.
The M provides access for passengers to City College of San Francisco, San Francisco State University and Stonestown Galleria mall as well making connections to downtown San Francisco.
On the agency’s website, the project will focus on making improvements between Junipero Serra Boulevard and the Balboa Park BART station. Improving the reliability of the M is not only the focus of the project, but also making improvements at transit stops where accessible boarding is not present and improving safety for people who walk along the corridor.
The survey can be taken in English, Spanish and Chinese. The feedback from the surveys will be used to help develop the initial proposal that will be shared sometime this summer, according to the project timeline on the SFMTA’s website.
