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.
