The 2nd Street Transit Hub & Bike Lane Gap Closure project will construct a transit hub on 2nd Street in the area of Clay Street to connect the Broadway bus only lanes with the Ferry Terminal. The Transit Hub is envisioned as an attractive experience where visitors and daily commuters may easily and comfortably wait for buses, access bikeshare and e-scooters, and park bicycles safely. The new Transit Hub may include:
- New bus shelters, benches, pedestrian-scale lighting, landscaping, real-time transit arrival information, a staging and transition location for transit riders and bus operators, and concrete bus pads will be installed to support daily AC Transit and other shuttle operations. Bus stops will have parallel pull-in designs adjacent to the existing Class 2 Bike Lanes.
- Space for shared micromobility, such as e-scooters and bikeshare, to support alternative and sustainable modes of travel.
- Wayfinding signage to enhance the pedestrian and bicycle experience by directing people to and from BART, Amtrak, the Ferry, and the new Transit Hub.
- Wider sidewalks and relocated bus stops to accommodate pedestrians traveling to and from the new Transit Hub.
Additionally, this project will close a bike lane gap on 2nd Street between Harrison and Alice Streets. To accommodate the bike lane gap closure, existing angled parking may be converted to parallel parking.
