Central Subway Relief

Small businesses impacted by construction of the Central Subway are getting a boost from the city as the result of a package of measures announced in mid-November by Mayor London Breed and District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin.

The measures include an advertising campaign to help Chinatown merchants, the reestablishment of loading zones on Stockton Street to reduce congestion, the creation of a temporary bus stop at Washington and Stockton Streets to try to increase access to businesses, additional inspectors to improve pedestrian safety, highlighting a park and ride program serving Chinatown, and making available direct financial assistance of $5,000 to $10,000 per business.
