Every year, more than 1.3 million people are killed and 50 million more are injured or disabled in traffic collisions — also called traffic violence. In the U.S., more than 33,000 people die from vehicle-related injuries annually. In San Francisco, on average, more than three people a day are hit by cars while walking.
The United Nations created the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims in 2005. This global event honors the millions of people hurt and killed in crashes, and offers a chance to stand in support of their family members, friends, and loved ones. The event also calls for action, to change the idea that these tragedies are inevitable. Crashes are no “accident” — we can prevent them.
Subway Extension to Marina
December 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Marina Middle School cafeteria, 3500 Fillmore St @Chestnut
Union Square to the Marina and Cow Hollow in 14 minutes?
As the Central Subway project nears completion, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is starting public outreach which will inform the possible extension of the Central Subway to North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf, and further west toward the Marina, Cow Hollow, and the Presidio.
Please save the date and join us on Wednesday December 5, 6 pm to 8 pm at Marina Middle School's cafeteria (3500 Fillmore Street) for a kickoff meeting cohosted by Supervisor Catherine Stefani and the SFMTA. We want to hear your ideas and concerns about a potential subway extension, as well as your input on which routes and station locations to study. SFMTA staff will share results from prior studies and host conversations about extending the Central Subway.
Additionally, if you would like the project team to present the materials at your community organization meeting please reach out to Adrienne Heim, Public Information Officer, Adrienne.Heim@sfmta.com.
For more information or to direct your colleagues and neighbors to sign up for updates please visit Central Subway Extension (https://www.sfmta.com/projects/central-subway-extension). For questions about the study please contact Kansai Uchida, Project Manager, Kansai.Uchida@sfmta.com.
