The original deadline for submitting public comments in regard to the Geary Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project was Nov. 15th, but that deadline has now been extended. The new deadline for submitting public comments is Nov. 30th. 

For the unacquainted, the Geary BRT is a $300 million plan to speed up public transit for the 55,000 commuters who travel along Geary daily on the 38 and 38R buses. (To put that number in perspective: the entire Caltrain system carries only about 3,000 more daily commuters than the two buses.)

Part of the plan includes the controversial demolition of the two pedestrian bridges in Japantown at Geary and Webster, to which some neighbors are opposed. For more on that, see our story from earlier this month.

"We encourage everyone who uses the Geary Corridor—whether for transportation, shopping, or daily living—to weigh in on this important project," said the SF County Transportation Agency in an email this morning. 

Comments can be sent via email to gearybrt [at] sfcta [dot] org or mailed to Attn: Geary BRT EIS/EIR, San Francisco County Transportation Authority, 1455 Market Street, 22nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103.
