Starting in early 2021, Muni’s new 15 Bayview Hunters Point Express line will improve Downtown access, reduce commute times and add transit capacity for residents of the Bayview and Hunters Point neighborhoods. 

The community-designed route connects the communities east of Third Street to Downtown and was chosen by residents who voted in a fall 2020 survey. 

Launching the new route coincides with the gradual return of Muni Metro rail service. Returning to rail frees up enough buses to run new service, like the 15 Bayview Hunters Point Express and new 27 Bryant route, and improve frequency on other key routes. 

Service on the 15 will run every 10 minutes from approximately 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends.
