Muni will continue to provide supplemental transportation services to welcome the America’s Cup sailing fans and to keep the city moving:

Event participants can also go by bike. Newly painted green bike lanes are in place along The Embarcadero from North Point to Howard streets in both directions. Please note the southbound lane does not include auto right-turn dash markings at this time, but the SFMTA crews will be back to apply special reflective treatments in merge areas for right turns.

Key transit enhancements and a detailed “People Plan” for transportation are in place to assure that visitors can easily visit the two main event venues, the America’s Cup Park at Piers 27/29 and the America’s Cup Village at Marina Green, and residents can go about their regular activities with a minimum of disruption. The centerpiece of the transportation plan, which includes transit, parking and bicycling, is a detailed map that helps visitors get to San Francisco’s busy waterfront. This map and the detailed brochure are available at both www.sfmta.com/americascup and www.511.org/americascup.
