Description

Excerpt from Report on the Improvement and Development of the Transportation Facilities of San Francisco: Submitted to the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors, City of San Francisco Of the needs of the various districts, those of the panama-paci fic Exposition site are certainly the most pressing. The present service capacity is barely one-third of that necessary, with only one line - Polk Street - in any sense adequate for maximum service, and this terminating over one mile from the main court of the Ex position. However estimates may vary as to the record attendance, a weekly maximum travel of people per hour probably repre sents the greatest demand for which street railway investment seems warranted. This represents more passengers than travel to their homes during the rush hour of a normal business day in San Fran cisco. Unless tunnels are constructed, parallel lines will be neces sary, with duplication of investment. Under limitations of street congestion and grades, 30 seconds headway, 100 passengers average per car, or a total capacity of persons per hour, represents the ability of service through each available entrance throat, which is the controlling factor. This exceeds the total travel on Market Street during the evening rush hour. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
