San Francisco Will Be Closing Market Street to Private Vehicles in 2020

San Francisco Will Be Closing Market Street to Private Vehicles in 2020

One of the busiest streets of San Francisco will be closed to vehicles starting next year.

Market Street in downtown San Fran will be closed to all private vehicles in an effort to increase the efficiency of the public transit system and increase the general safety of the area. 

Buses and taxis will have access to the street while Lyft, Uber and other rideshare platforms will be banned. Passengers will have to walk to pick-up points at side streets to get their rides.

Cars will still be able to cross Market Street at intersections, but drivers who turn on the street will risk a moving violation, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.
