We Saved Our Passenger Loading Zone at 550 Battery Street

The SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Directors approved the Battery/Sansome Quick-Build Bikeway Project on Sept 6th with staff changes addressing the GTA’s most critical concerns. We worked closely with the  Barbary Coast Neighborhood Association (BCNA), the community organization representing our neighborhood.. The protected two-way bikeway will include (1) left turns from Battery Street at Jackson Street and (2) a passenger loading zone in front of Vista West (550 Battery Street). See their final Proposed Design Illustratives – August 2022 at this link. The GTA put considerable effort into winning these changes, sought by our members and community and following on the online survey we conducted of about 400 Gateway residents with support by The Gateway management. GTA and BCNA had numerous discussions, walking tours and email exchanges with SFMTA staff and other organizations, and collected almost 600 signatures through an online petition and Gateway tables at Vistas West and North to Save Our Passenger Loading Zone.

What is the GTA?

The Gateway Tenants Association is a volunteer organization that informs its members and all Gateway tenants, and advances mutual interests including the preservation of rent control. We meet with Gateway management to discuss tenant concerns; keep track of neighborhood developments that affect our quality of life; and promote social events that allow residents to meet and share common interests. The GTA was founded in 1982 and has been a vocal advocate for the neighborhood and renters from day one.

Members of the GTA often say they’d like to know what’s happening in our neighborhood.  There’s a lot right now!
