Getting to Know Geary Boulevard from Arguello to 41st Avenue, From the Inner Richmond to the Outer

Feel free to click to expand.

It’s hard to see how 40 entire avenues are in there, but that must be the case:

The OfficeMax in the corner marks Arguello and way at the end you can see the 40′s in the Outer Richmond, where Point Lobos Avenue breaks off from Geary Bouelvard.

Can you see how all the lights are red at the same time going outbound? Does that encourage drivers to drive as fast as they can to see how far they can get before all the lights turn red again? Discuss.

    I think what encourages drives to do that is being in a car ;)

    Well, if they were timed for 25 mph, that would encourage people to drive 25 mph – that’s what I mean.

    The fastest way on Geary these days would be to drive 40 or so…

    Damn those sidewalks look wide!

    Not really. It’s the medians that look big. Chop down the trees, get rid of the median and put in a streetcar line – that could work.

    I have long felt that a subway or street car line down Geary would make the most sense – perhaps moreso that then Central Subway that is now under construction. The number of people travelling out Geary towards the Richmond and Outside Lands areas would greatly benefit from better transit.
