Cyclist and Pedestrian Safety Around The Moscone Center
Moscone Center is located at the crossroads of a strong entertainment district, commercial center, retail and restaurant corridor, and a growing residential community. Access in and around the Center has evolved with the addition of new bike lanes and pedestrian walkways.
Approaching Moscone South's Third Street Ramp
In summer of 2019, Folsom Street gained two protected bicycle lanes between 2nd and 11th streets, including the block adjacent to Moscone South, between Third and Fourth streets.
When you travel on Folsom Street and approach Third Street to enter Moscone South's Third Street Ramp, please be aware of the following:
- Reduce your speed! The area is now a dense residential neighborhood, not an industrial area, and there can be a large amount of pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
- A new mid-block crosswalk and traffic signal is located on Folsom Street between Third and Fourth streets.
- Mid-block traffic signals are timed to provide more separation between vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians. The slower speed is one of the changes to help make Folsom Street safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.
- Red painted street lane on the south/right of Folsom at Mabini Street: This is a transit only lane reserved for SFMTA public transit buses. Stay to the left while on Folsom Street.
- Protected two-way bike lane on the south/right side of Folsom Street between 11th Street and 2nd Street. Stay to the left while on Folsom Street.
Approaching Moscone West's Howard Street Loading Dock Entrance
- Reduce your speed! The area is evolving into a highly residential community - be aware of pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
- A protected two-way bike lane on the south/left side of Howard Street between 4th Street and 11th Street heading west. Stay to the right while on Howard Street.
