Just about everyone in the San Francisco Bay Area knows that Super Bowl City is officially open to the public, but for those of us who commute on the ferry or use the Embarcadero BART Station, please note your usual walking route may be affected by Super Bowl City Security measures (now in place). Specifically, the area around the Justin Herman Plaza (also known as the Ferry Plaza) has a 24-hour security perimeter requiring pedestrians to pass through a secured entrance or navigate around it. Bicycles will be prohibited inside the perimeter, as will other items listed on the Super Bowl Host Committee’s website. We also encourage you to add some time to your usual commute as crowds and traffic congestion can also be expected in the area for the Super Bowl 50 events.
For more details on navigating the security perimeter, see this blog post from the SF Municipal Transportation Agency. The SFMTA’s Super Bowl 50 webpage has full info on getting around during the events.
