If a visitor to San Francisco rides the 14-Mission, they’ll will get a good taste of what San Francisco has to offer as a whole.
There are plenty of neighborhoods critical to the modern San Francisco identity not touched by this particular marathon bus line, of course. But stretching as it does from South Beach down through SoMa—both the trendy sections and the down and dirty ones—through the heart of the Mission, skirting residential burghs like Bernal Heights and Glen Park, and descending all the way down through the Excelsior and into Daly City, it’s rare that any one route shows so many diverse and eclectic faces of San Francisco.
For Curbed’s Transportation Week, here’s a look at six homes in six very different neighborhoods that have one critical thing in common: The 14-Mission serves them all.
Welcome to Curbed’s first-ever Transportation Week! From how to improve public transportation in cities, ranking the best car-free neighborhoods across the country, and a friendly competition between NYC, San Francisco, and Los Angeles to determine which has the best public transit, this week is all about how we get around in our favorite cities. All aboard!
