APEC Impacts for Golden Gate Transit, Ferry, and Golden Gate Bridge

November 6, 2023 09:30 AM

APEC Economic Leaders’ Week will be held in San Francisco November 11-19, 2023. Due to road closures and detours in San Francisco during the meetings, there will be some service impacts to Golden Gate Transit routes near the Civic Center and Financial District. Please sign up for alerts so you don't miss any notifications. The public can also text APEC2023 to 888777 for real-time alerts from the SFEOC. CalTrans estimates an additional 60-90 minute delay onto commute drive-times during APEC. 

There will be parking lot closures at the Golden Gate Bridge.

Golden Gate Ferry is not expecting service disruptions. We recommend taking the Ferry into San Francisco during APEC service disruptions on city streets.
