San Francisco smart city pilots aim to make streets safer

  • New connected high-occupancy vehicle lanes for public transit and carpools
  • Dedicated curb space for pick-up and drop-off by carpools
  • Smart traffic signals to reduce congestion and improve safety
  • Connected Vision Zero safety corridors to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists; engineering projects in support of Vision Zero will incorporate effective safety improvements such as protected bike lanes, wider sidewalks and reduced traffic speeds
  • A connected, electronic toll system for the congestion pricing program at Treasure Island, a manmade island in San Francisco Bay that was built in the late 1930s as a spectacle for the World’s Fair
  • The deployment and testing of electronic, autonomous shuttle buses serving intra-island trips on Treasure Island
