Protect pedestrians and Muni riders
Allow families, children, and the disabled to access Balboa Park and small businesses
Get the SFMTA to make improvements
We want the SFMTA to implement a comprehensive set of streetscape improvements on San Jose Ave. from Geneva Ave. to Baden St. Half-measures and one-off projects that happen after terrible accidents in which our neighbors are injured and maimed are no longer acceptable.
