The proposed project appears to include a Market Street-like transit corridor of bus-only lanes and center of street bus stops down the center of Van Ness.

The first public scoping meeting will be held Tuesday, October 2 6-8pm at the Holiday Inn, Crystal Room, 1500 Van Ness at Pine.

The second public scoping meeting will be Thursday, October 4, 6-8 pm, 100 Van Ness Ave, 26th Floor at Fell.

The purpose of the scoping meetings is to obtain public input on the project alternatives and potential environmental effects that will be studied.
