New bike-share stations proposed for Frida Kahlo Way

On December 6th, SFMTA will consider three new Bay Wheels bike-share stations that are near (but not in) Sunnyside, two on Frida Kahlo Way to serve City College and the coming Balboa Reservoir housing development and one on San Jose Avenue at Santa Rosa. Full agenda here.

UPDATE Dec 2019: The San Jose Ave station was rejected due to conflicts with Muni. The two CCSF stations were accepted.

SFMTA: Sunnyside bike-share stations

On May 17, the SF Municipal Transportation Agency meeting will consider for approval two Ford GoBike stations for Sunnyside, at Gennessee at Monterey and on Judson near Gennessee (marked on map with yellow spots). Additional stations to complete the network have yet to find locations.

The Judson station will take four parking places. The Gennessee station will not take any parking places, just a portion of a very wide sidewalk.

To complete the station network locally, two additional stations are needed for the neighborhood, in the area of eastern Sunnyside where there are no markers on the map above–between the two proposed stations and the already installed station at Glen Park BART. Any station in these areas will remove three parking spaces. Continue reading “SFMTA: Sunnyside bike-share stations”
