-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces final environmental actions taken by the 
Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for the Geary Corridor Bus Rapid 
Transit (BRT) Project (the project) in San Francisco, California. The 
project would provide bus rapid transit service along the Geary 
corridor from the Transbay Transit Center to 48th Avenue with dedicated 
bus-only lanes, higher-frequency bus service, new BRT stations, 
improvements to pedestrian features, and upgrades to traffic signals to 
optimize the bus service and transit signal priority within the project 
area. The purpose of this notice is to announce publicly the 
environmental decisions by FTA on the subject project and to activate 
the limitation on any claims that may challenge this final 
environmental action.

DATES: By this notice, FTA is advising the public of final agency 
actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l). A claim seeking judicial review of 
FTA actions announced herein for the listed public transportation 
project will be barred unless the claim is filed on or before December 
31, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nancy-Ellen Zusman, Assistant Chief 
Counsel, Office of Chief Counsel, (312) 353-2577, or Alan Tabachnick, 
Environmental Protection Specialist, Office of Environmental Programs,

to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that FTA has taken 
final agency action by issuing a certain approval for the public 
transportation project listed below. The actions on the project, as 
well as the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in 
the documentation issued in connection with the project to comply with 
the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and in other documents in 
the FTA administrative record for the project. Interested parties may 
contact either the project sponsor or the FTA Regional Office for more 
information. Contact information for FTA's Regional Offices may be 
found at https://www.fta.dot.gov.
    This notice applies to all FTA decisions on the listed project as 
of the issuance date of this notice and all laws under which such 
actions were taken, including NEPA [42 U.S.C. 4321-4375], Section 4(f) 
requirements [23 U.S.C. 138, 49 U.S.C. 303], Section 106 of the 
National Historic Preservation Act [16 U.S.C. 470f], and the Clean Air 
Act [42 U.S.C. 7401-7671q]. This notice does not, however, alter or 
extend the limitation period for challenges of project decisions 
subject to previous notices published in the Federal Register. The 
project and action that is the subject of this notice follow:
    Project name and location: The Geary Corridor Bus Rapid Transit 
(BRT) Project in San Francisco, California.
    Project Sponsor: The San Francisco Municipal Transportation 
Authority (SFMTA), in coordination with San Francisco County 
Transportation Authority (SFCTA). Project description: The purpose of 
the Geary Corridor BRT Project is to enhance the performance, 
viability, and comfort level of transit and pedestrian travel along a 
6.5-mile BRT corridor that connects to the Transbay Transit Center in 
northern San Francisco, California. The Geary corridor is a major 
thoroughfare, accommodating more than 50,000 daily person trips via 
public transit; auto volumes up to 44,000 vehicles per day; and tens of 
thousands of daily pedestrian trips. The project will implement BRT 
service with a combination of side-running and center-running bus-only 
lanes as well as within mixed-flow travel lanes along different 
segments of the 6.5-mile corridor. The project will implement higher-
frequency bus service, new BRT stations, improvements to pedestrian 
features, and upgrades to traffic signals, including fiber-based 
transit signal priority to optimize bus service. Physical roadway and 
lane changes would occur between Market Street and 34th Avenue while 
bus service amenities and improvements would be provided along the 
Geary corridor from the Transbay Transit Center to 48th Avenue. The 
proposed project was the subject of the Geary Corridor Bus Rapid 
Transit Project Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS)/Record 
of Decision (ROD), dated June 1, 2018. The project's notice of 
availability for the Final EIS was published in the Federal Register on 
June 15, 2018.
    Final agency actions: Section 4(f) determination, dated June 1, 
2018; Section 106 finding of no adverse effect on historic properties 
dated October 17, 2017; project-level air quality conformity; and ROD, 
dated June 1, 2018. Supporting documentation: The Geary Corridor Bus 
Rapid Transit Project Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS) 
with Record of Decision, dated June 1, 2018.
