Market Street Pilot

The Better Market Street Project kicked off its pilot program this morning, diverting eastbound cars off of Market Street between 10th and 6th streets. I rode Market to 4th Street to see what it was like, and it was much nicer to ride on. There were still delivery trucks, but I felt like I could use more of the street without having to make room for cars. I imagine that buses ran more quickly on Market Street after 8th Street.

I'm all for making Market Street better for everyone to use. It has always been a bad street to drive east on, it makes much more sense to divert this traffic into SOMA. It will be interesting to see whether most people like this change or not.

I hate driving on Market Street in either direction (which is not very often), mostly because I always seem to need to turn left, and you pretty much can't do that at all until way far down.
