Welcome to the San Francisco County Transportation Authority
Created in 1989, the Transportation Authority is responsible for long-range transportation planning for the city, and it analyzes, designs and funds improvements for San Francisco's roadway and public transportation networks. The Transportation Authority administers and oversees the delivery of the Prop K half-cent local transportation sales tax program. It also serves as the designated Congestion Management Agency (CMA) for San Francisco under state law, and acts as the San Francisco Program Manager for grants from the Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA). The Transportation Authority was designated Treasure Island Mobility Management Agency (TIMMA) in 2014, charged with planning for sustainable mobility on Treasure Island, coordinating new ferry and regional bus service, on-island shuttle, bike share, and car share opportunities.

LATEST STATS ON CONGESTION IN SAN FRANCISCO
The Transportation Authority has released the latest data on congestion in San Francisco. As has been reported by others and no doubt perceived by local travelers, traffic congestion on city streets has increased over the past two years. Meanwhile transit speeds and transit reliability have remained steady, meaning that transit is more competitive with autos than in past years, an outcome consistent with San Francisco’s “transit-first” policies.
The reasons for congestion are many: a strong economy leading to dramatic job growth and a rising population, construction-related lane closures, the popularity of walking and bicycling, and the proliferation of new commercial transportation services
The congestion data is contained in the Transportation Authority’s biannual Congestion Management Program. Explore an interactive map of congestion data and see what the city is doing to mitigate congestion.

TRANSPORTATION 2045 TASK FORCE CONTINUES WORK
The Transportation 2045 Task Force has been convened by the Honorable Mayor Edwin M. Lee and Board of Supervisors President London Breed.
NEIGHBORHOOD TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (NTIP)
The Neighborhood Transportation Improvement Program (NTIP) funds community-based neighborhood-scale planning efforts, especially in underserved neighborhoods and areas with vulnerable populations (e.g. seniors, children, and/or people with disabilities).
The NTIP was developed in response to mobility and equity analysis findings from the San Francisco Transportation Plan (SFTP), the city’s 30-year blueprint guiding transportation investment in San Francisco, and the Transportation Authority Board's desire for more focus on neighborhoods, especially on Communities of Concern and other underserved neighborhoods.
The SFTP found that walking, biking and transit reliability initiatives are important ways to address socio-economic and geographic inequities.
The NTIP is made possible by the Transportation Authority through grants from San Francisco's half-cent sales tax for transportation.

MyStreetSF Projects Map
From signals to streetcars, bicycles to boulevards, from pedestrian safety to paving, the Transportation Authority provides funding for hundreds of transportation projects citywide. The MyStreetSF interactive map shows projects currently underway, proposed, and recently completed that are funded by, or prioritized for funding by the Transportation Authority, as well as those for which the we provide some level of oversight, in our role as Congestion Management Agency for San Francisco. The MyStreetSF interactive map allows you to search for projects by location, Supervisorial District, project type (e.g., bicycle, pedestrian safety, transit rehabilitation), project sponsor, or timeline. Click on a project on the map to see key information (e.g., short description, schedule, cost) and a link to the project page and/or project sponsor’s main page. The map page also includes information on city-wide projects and programs like Bicycle Education and Outreach. READ MORE
