SFMTA’s Potrero Yard Modernisation Project Reaches New Milestone

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has announced that the predevelopment agreement (PDA) for the Potrero Yard Modernization Project has been awarded to Potrero Neighborhood Collective (PNC) as lead developer.

This project will replace the 107-year-old Potrero Bus Yard with the US’s first joint development of a bus facility with housing constructed on top in order to improve transit while also advancing the city’s affordable housing goal.

The successful proposal’s conceptual design is for a modern, three-story bus storage and maintenance transit facility and approximately 575 affordable rental units for those with low or moderate incomes.

The SFMTA launched the Building Progress Program in 2017 — a 2.3 billion USD project to repair, renovate, and modernise the Agency’s facilities.

The first facility to be prioritised for an overhaul in this programme was Potrero Yard, which does not meet modern seismic safety standards and is unable to support maintenance and cleaning practices.

In contrast, the new facility would provide adequate space for bus maintenance, parking and circulation and will create better working conditions for SFMTA staff. It will also assist the agency’s transition to an all-electric fleet using trolley and battery electric buses.
