In an effort to spruce up the Polk Street corridor between McAllister and Union streets, the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency is hosting a series of walking tours capped off with a workshop to discuss design ideas. The organization is especially interested in the opinions of commuters who ride transit, bike or walk the corridor.
Participants are invited to attend what the SFMTA is calling a “walking audit” led by an agency staff member. Attendees will stop at spots along the corridor to discuss what they like and what needs to be fixed. The first of four tours took place Monday. There are three more scheduled:
7 p.m. Wednesday: Start in front of 2330 Polk St. (Crunch Fitness), or northwest corner of Polk and Golden Gate Avenue, in front of Golden 1 Credit Union
9 a.m. Thursday: Start in front of 2330 Polk St. (Crunch Fitness), or northwest corner of Polk and Golden Gate Avenue, in front of Golden 1 Credit Union (same as Wednesday tour)
9 a.m. Saturday: Start in front of 1300 Polk Street, at Bush Street
On Saturday, the agency will hold a drop-in workshop from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 1300 Polk St.
