CBD Clean Team
Current Clean Team reports are available monthly on our website. The November report is HERE.

Our Clean Team is always on the move, removing graffiti and picking up litter and sweeping fallen leaves. This month, removing leaves was more important than usual. With the frequent storms we've encountered, drains were quickly covered. You can see in the pictures below what a difference our Team makes! 



Walking through the district and spotting graffiti and trash? Call the CBD dispatch number 415-474-7536 to report graffiti or cleaning problems in the CBD footprint
F-Market Transportation Update
The F-Market line will operate with buses being substituted for streetcars from the Castro to Don Chee Way at Stuart Street. There will be an easy transfer between the streetcar and buses at Steuart Street and Don Chee Way. This substitution is scheduled to take place January 23rd - February 12th.
