New Traffic Flow on Market Street in San Francisco

We’re part of a citywide initiative to make San Francisco safer, which officially kicks off today on Market Street. Here’s what you need to know to make the transition smooth for yourself and your passengers.

What Changed?

  1. Turns are restricted. If you’re driving towards Market Street on 3rd Street, 8th Street, or any street in between, you’re no longer able to turn onto Market.
  2. Driving eastbound on Market is also prohibited.
  3. New loading zones were added to Market’s cross streets, created by the City to make your passenger pickups and drop-offs easier.

What You Can Do

  1. Turn onto a parallel street (like Mission), or drive perpendicularly across Market to the other side. 
  2. Follow the signs. While navigation apps update their routing, use your best judgement and pay attention to signage. 
  3. Use the new loading zones. Suggest them to your passengers for a safer (and quicker) ride.

How We’re Educating Passengers

As soon as a passenger opens the app near Market Street, they’ll see alerts asking them to relocate to a cross street. We’re also sending all active San Francisco passengers the above map of loading zones this week. 

We appreciate your patience as passengers learn the new restrictions. Together, we can help make San Francisco a better place for drivers, passengers, cyclists, and pedestrians.
