SFO to Shut Down Some Moving Equipment to Conserve Energy

As a result of the current reductions in flight activity, the Airport has decided to shut down non-critical moving equipment in an effort to conserve energy and reduce wear and tear. Beginning Thursday, April 9, 2020, the Airport will start to shut down some moving equipment which will include all electric walks and some redundant escalators. Elevators will not be included in this action. Directional signage will be posted at the impacted escalators directing passengers to alternate escalators or nearby elevators. Advisory notices will be placed at the electric walks.  

We appreciate your patience during this closure program and apologize for any inconvenience.
