PROJECT: IMPROVING OVERNIGHT WORKER TRANSPORTATION

San Francisco’s 24-hour economy requires thousands of workers in the entertainment, healthcare, manufacturing and other industries to commute during late-night and early-morning hours. The overnight public transit system does not currently align with these needs, however, leaving many workers without access to safe, affordable and reliable transportation options. The Office of Economic and Workforce Development hired Yves to work with city departments, regional government partners and local industries to implement an overnight transportation plan that will better serve the needs of businesses, workers and visitors.
