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).

Balboa Park Circulation Study Final Report Adopted

Balboa Park Circulation Study Final Report coverThe Balboa Park Station Area Circulation Study Final Report was adopted by the Transportation Authority Board on June 24, 2014. The Study explored changes to the Balboa Park Station area and adjacent I-280 interchange at Geneva and Ocean Avenues, with the goals of reducing multimodal conflicts among vehicles, transit and pedestrians, and improving conditions for travelers accessing the station. The Study's recommendations included a closure of the I-280 Geneva Avenue northbound on-ramp, a re-configuration of the I-280 Ocean Avenue southbound off-ramp, and a new frontage road connecting from Geneva Avenue to Ocean Avenue on the east side of I-280. The Transportation Authority will advance the recommended improvements to the next phase of development, including documentation and approval by the State Department of Transportation (Caltrans), which owns and operates the freeway system.

Join our Citizens Advisory Committees!

Citizens (or Community) Advisory Committees, also known as CACs, are an important part of our planning efforts: they give the public—community and business stakeholders—a voice in the direction and scope of many of our projects, analyze benefits and impacts on San Francisco’s many communities, and recommend courses of action.

We currently have one vacancy on our agency-wide CAC. If you’re interested, get in touch with us! Call 415.522.4800 or send us an email. We need your guidance and support!
