The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) is planning to undertake the bus rapid transit project in San Francisco, California, the US.

The project involves the construction of a 10.46km corridor from Transbay Transit Center to 48th Avenue. It will include the construction of bus lanes, stations, pedestrian walkways and related infrastructure, and the installation of ticket machines, traffic signals and lightning system. The project will be developed in two phases.

The first phase includes side-running transit-only lanes, transit-optimized traffic signals, bus stop optimization, and pedestrian safety treatments. This phase is worth US$100 million. The second phase, which is worth US$240 million, includes the remaining improvements.

The project is funded through US$50.6 million in Prop K funds of which US$17 million has been allocated for planning and preliminary design engineering and US$33.6 million is programmed for engineering design and construction.

The funding plan includes US$100 million in potential Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Small Starts funds.

In May 2007, the feasibility study was approved by the Transportation Authority Board.

In 2009, an environmental impact report was approved.

MSA Design & Consulting, Inc. (MSA) has been appointed as an engineering consultant. The scope of work includes conceptual civil, structural and construction engineering services to assess the feasibility of earlier studies and develop new alternatives for surface bus rapid transit.

In the fourth quarter of 2014, SFCTA submitted Administrative Draft Environmental Impact Report (AD EIR) to Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

On October 2, 2015, Geary BRT reached an important milestone, with the release of the project’s draft environmental document. SFCTA and FTA, in partnership with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) describing an analysis of the expected project benefits and impacts for four design alternatives, including one that has been identified as the staff-recommended alternative (SRA).

Following release of the Draft EIS/EIR, a public review and comment period ran from October 2, 2015, to November 30, 2015.

On January 5, 2017, the project received approval for the project’s design and Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR).

On July 20, 2017, the environmental review process was approved by SFMTA Board. The project is facing opposition from local residents.
