The annual Independence Day Fireworks display and celebration on July 4th at the Aquatic Park and Fisherman’s wharf will result in temporary road closures, service changes and potential delays for public transit users. We estimate that as many as 200,000 people may attend this event. As a result, this will create temporary access barriers for people with disabilities.
SFMTA Accessible Services strongly suggests that riders with disabilities access the celebration via shuttle buses to Fisherman’s Wharf via the Embarcadero. This location has the least hilly pedestrian access and is closest point to the fireworks from Muni shuttle service.
