Those taking transit to the ninth annual Outside Lands gathering this weekend — and those endeavoring to travel as far away as possible from the oft-bombastic festival — are being warned of traffic impacts.
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has advised all Muni buses with routes near Golden Gate Park may experience delays due to the festival, which runs Friday to Sunday and is slated to attract 60,000 participants each day.
The N-Judah, 5, 5R, 7, 7R, 7X, 18, 28, 28R, 29 and 44 may all see delays, according to the SFMTA, and traffic in the area “will be heavy.”
For those seeking to jam to headliners Radiohead and Lionel Ritchie, the SFMTA is boosting Muni service on the 5R-Fulton Rapid bus, the 28-19th Avenue, 29-Sunset and N-Judah from Friday to Sunday.
Taxi stands will be provided at Fulton Street at 24th and 25th avenues, Fulton Street at 29th and 30th avenues, Fulton Street at 35th and 36th avenues, and Lincoln Avenue between 33rd and 35th avenues.
Outside Lands has a three-day shuttle pass available for $48.The shuttle departs from Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and heads to Outside Lands beginning at 11 a.m. each day of the festival.
Lyft is the official ride-hail partner of Outside Lands, according to the event website, and new users can use the code OUTSIDELANDS16 for $10 off the two first rides taken.
