We’re taking action for a people-first Market Street on May 1 – join us!

Imagine no private vehicles on Market Street

Market Street is San Francisco’s busiest pedestrian street, with half a million people walking on it every day. Yet Market Street is also one of the most dangerous places to walk, especially at many of the cross streets.

The absolute best way to make Market Street safe for everyone who walks, bikes, and takes transit is to remove private vehicles from Steuart Street near the Ferry Building to Van Ness Avenue.

On May 1, 2019 from 5:00-6:30PM, we will join SF Transit Riders, People Protected, and the SF Bicycle Coalition at Market Street and Montgomery to demand this happen now.

At the action, Walk San Francisco will collect hundreds of signed postcards to send to SF Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru asking him to eliminate private vehicles and keep the Better Market Street project on track to break ground this year.

>>Sign up to join us May 1<<

And if you’re ready to start winning the bold changes our streets need, we need you now. Market Street is just one of our many campaigns to create a pedestrian-first San Francisco.

Donate today to help us go big on campaigns to reduce speeds citywide, bring congestion pricing to downtown, fix the city’s deadliest streets ASAP, and more.

Can’t be there May 1? Send an email to city leaders now to make Market Street a safe, people-first space.
