Dreamforce 2019 to impact traffic in Downtown San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Salesforce will be holding its yearly Dreamforce convention at Moscone Center starting a week from Tuesday. Street closures for the tech event started Tuesday morning and will be in effect until Sunday, November 24.

Howard Street is closed from 3rd to 4th Street.

Traffic congestion is anticipated in and around Moscone Center between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily for the duration of the closure. Commuters are encouraged to take public transportation.

The following Muni routes will be affected: 8 Bayshore; 8AX Bayshore A Express; 8BX Bayshore B Express; 10 Townsend; 12 Folsom; 14 Mission; 14R Mission Rapid; 14X Mission Express; 30 Stockton; 45 Union/Stockton; 81X Caltrain Express; and 82X Levi Plaza Express.

Alli Kleppe from San Francisco gets dropped off by the bus and walks on Howard to get to work. "This happens every year, it's always kind of a pain to get to work on this week but the energy is fun, Kleppe said. She also said there's a lot of people so it's hard to get around. "Kind of a nuisance, you can't get an Uber around here at all so it's walking or bus if you want to get home in the afternoons," Kleppe said.

SFMTA spokesperson Erica Kato says try and avoid the area all together, but if you to be around the Moscone, take public transportation. "For people going to Dreamforce- public transit is your best bet. The Powell station serves both muni and bart riders," Kato said.

This year, Dreamforce will be from November 19 to the 22. According to Salesforce website, tickets range from $1,599-2,299 and are all sold out.
