The MTA delivered its Draft Tour Bus Study for Alamo Square in late December.
The report includes ideas for further discussion to create a better balance of tour buses in the neighborhood. They include restricting buses of a particular size on specific streets, or restricting tour buses altogether. This would require public hearings and legislation from the SFMTA Board of Directors. Some level of environmental review would also be required to gauge the impact on nearby neighborhoods.
Another idea would be to implement specific parking zones for tour buses, and to implement residential permit parking, which would result in more parking control officers in the area, citing buses for improper behavior.
