The SFMTA has prepared a summary of the project and a survey at sfmta.com/polk. We encourage everyone to take the survey, and forward it to anyone interested in preserving parking and vitality along Polk St. SFMTA has compiled a feasibility document of the proposed plans on the table as well as past proposals.

The SF Municipal Transit Authority plans to remove up to 20 blocks of street parking on Polk Street from McAllister to Union in order to install bike lanes. On March 18, 2013 nearly 400 Polk Street residents and merchants attended a neighborhood meeting and opposed this plan. SFMTA Director Ed Reiskin promised that his staff would go back to the drawing board and reduce the number of parking spaces to be removed. To date there has been NO CHANGE in the SFMTA plan.
