Public meetings set for Van Ness Bus Rapid Transit

The San Francisco County Transportation Authority announced Wednesday that it will host two public scoping sessions for the proposed Van Ness Bus Rapid Transit project.

The new transit project is being explored as a cost-effective, reliable and speedy transit option for the city's primary north-south corridor, according to the Transportation Authority.

Workshops will provide the public with an opportunity to provide input into the design alternatives and impacts that will be assessed during the environmental analysis phase of the project.

According to the Transit Authority, an environmental impact report is expected to be complete in spring of 2008 and, if approved, construction on the rapid transit project will begin as early as 2010.

The analysis is being conducted in partnership with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

The first meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Oct. 2 at Holiday Inn, 1500 Van Ness Ave, and the second at 6 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Transportation Authority's headquarters at 100 Van Ness Ave.
