Due to road closures, officials are advising individuals who need to go downtown to use public transportation. This presents a potential opportunity for public transit, as many people in San Francisco may start relying on it again to avoid heavy traffic.
Some individuals stopped using public transit during the pandemic, but with the expected increase in traffic, they are considering returning to using it. However, there are concerns about the safety and reliability of public transit.
Despite these concerns, officials are encouraging the public to take transit due to numerous street closures, including a lane on the Bay Bridge.
