Access to the 2018 SF Dyke March
AT THE PARK
There will be an accessible, non-smoking, and scent free area for senior and disabled dykes in the park at Dolores Street between Cumberland & 19th. The Access Area will include: an ADA port-a-potty, an awning for shade, some seating and water. Please bring a chair if you can.
The Hoff Street Garage is providing our parking needs this year. Senior and disabled dykes wishing to park there are welcome to do so. This is for access use only, parking is limited, and is first come, first serve. Please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space as there are only 15 parking spaces.
We will be providing a shuttle for seniors and dykes with disabilities who park at the Hoff Street Garage. The shuttles are wheelchair accessible and are free. A companion person is allowed to join the person with a disability on the shuttle.
Starting at 10:30 am, the Shuttle will run every 20 minutes in a loop including: 19th Street and Dolores Street drop off and back to Hoff Street Garage. The first shuttle will leave Hoff Street Garage at 11:15 am and will run through 4:30 pm, and will be returning riders from 6:45 pm through 7:30 pm.
The shuttle is 22 feet long and is equipped with a hydraulic lift at the rear of the vehicle for anyone unable to climb the steps at the front. In its normal configuration with all seats in the down position, it can accommodate 14 seated passengers, but no wheelchairs. It can be quickly reset to accommodate either 10 seated passengers plus 2 wheelchairs or 4 seated passengers plus 4 wheelchairs. It will accommodate electric motorized wheelchairs; the lift is capable of lifting at least 800 pounds. The lift platform on these particular vehicles meets or exceeds the ADA minimum. We accommodate over-sized or extra-large chairs.
Please exit BART at the 16th & Mission, walk a short distance westward on 16th Street to the Hoff Street Alley, turn left and there you'll find a sandwich board with balloons attached marking the pick-up location.
Please take the J line and exit Muni at the 18th Street stop. The stop is located at the North West corner of Dolores Park. The stage will be located along Dolores Street North of 20th Street. Please note: Bus lines 22/24/33 and the J Church Streetcar will be rerouted to Mission Street.
SENIOR/DISABLED CABLE CAR
The Senior/Disabled Cable Car is open to people who can not walk the march because of a disability or mobility limitation. We are asking allies not to use this space since it is limited. It is not wheelchair accessible. But if a wheelchair folds and the person can transfer up the stairs, it may work. We suggest checking it out.
At 2:30 pm the Senior/Disabled Cable Car will arrive at Dolores Park at the event loading zone on Dolores Street between Cumberland & 19th Street.
From 3:00-4:00 pm the Cable Car will be used as a viewing station and will remain parked in the event loading zone.
At 4:00 pm the access volunteers will begin to help load senior and/or disabled passengers for the march.
At 4:30 pm the Cable Car will proceed to line up on 18th for the Dyke March take off.
At 5pm, the Cable Car will lead the Dyke March. Upon request, at the termination of the march, the Cable Car will transport any remaining riders back to the Hoff St. Parking Garage.
PLEASE NOTE: NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE CABLE CAR FOR SAFETY REASONS-NO EXCEPTIONS.
END OF MARCH TRANSPORTATION
The Cable Car will continue to the end of the march at 18th and Dolores Street. From there (upon request) it will transport any remaining riders back to Dolores Park. The shuttle will make round trips from the Hoff Street location to and from Dolores Park approximately every 20 minutes starting at 10:30 am through 4:30 pm, and returning from 6:45 pm through 7:30 pm.
An ASL interpreter will be interpreting the rally program and will be located at the front of the stage.
