At any point on our walk along 24th Street people wishing to make an early return
by bus can catch the No. 48 Bus (going west) back towards the assembly point. The
bus stops are not shelters. They are indicated by painted curbs as in the above picture.
They are located every couple of blocks. Make sure you are on the north side of 24th
Once people have started the along Church Street, they can simply make their way
back to 24th Street for an early return.
To better understand this, take a look at the route for our Noe Valley walk.
After passing Clifford Terrace, pull the cable running along the insides of the bus
to signal the driver you want to get off at the next stop, Diamond Heights Boulevard.
If you do this correctly a red light, up front and towards the ceiling, should indicate:
stop requested. If this doesn’t happen, tell the driver you want to get off at the
next stop, Diamond Heights Boulevard.
The bus stop is in a considerably different location from the one to go to the Noe
Valley. So don’t be thrown off by this if you also took the bus to the Noe Valley.
After you exit the bus, you have to walk about 3/10 mile back to the assembly point
(if you want to use the restrooms) or parking.
You will have to cross curving Clipper street and then immediately cross busy Diamond
Heights Boulevard. Be prudent and exercise vigilance.
Clipper Terrace Gardens (optional)
Before starting the walk back to the assembly point you can easily view the optional
Clipper Terrace Garden. It is not on the way to the assembly point, but it is only
a few minutes walk from your bus stop. You enter it from Clipper Terrace street.
