The transportation network for Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island is designed to prioritize pedestrians and cyclists and to encourage sustainable transit-oriented choices as part of everyday life. Transportation demand management programs will be put in place such as the country’s first congestion pricing program and mandatory household transit passes, parking policies and ramp metering will maximize transit use.
A commitment to enhancing the public realm is reflected in the street design, the pedestrian and bicycle network, the enhanced transit service, and the demand management program. The Project includes ferries, buses, electric or alternative fuel, on-island shuttles, car sharing, and a bicycle sharing program. An intermodal transit facility, located at the southwest corner of Treasure Island, serves as a gateway onto the island and as a transportation hub, providing links between all forms of transportation and connecting ferries and buses with on-island services and pedestrian routes.
