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).

10 Year Anniversary of Proposition K
This month the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Proposition K, the city’s half-cent transportation sales tax that passed with 75% voter approval in 2003. The Prop K program generates about $88 million per year and has allocated over $1 billion since 2003.
“Proposition K’s impact has reached every neighborhood in San Francisco,” said John Avalos, Chair of the SFCTA Board. “We have been extremely fortunate in San Francisco to have this dedicated source of local transportation funding to improve transportation options for all, at a time when state and Federal resources are shrinking. The Transportation Authority works hard to leverage these funds and to provide transparency and accountability to the voters who supported this critical program.” READ MORE
SAN FRANCISCO TRANSPORTATION PLAN: FINAL ROUND OF OUTREACH
We’re in the midst of a final round of outreach to raise awareness and get feedback from the public on the San Francisco Transportation Plan (SFTP)—the city’s thirty-year blueprint for guiding investment in future transportation projects and enhancements. We’ll share how we developed, with public input, the draft SFTP Investment Scenario—the plan for existing revenues and investment of new revenues—and are seeking input on potential new revenue sources to support unmet needs identified by the SFTP.
We’re also focusing on the SFTP’s Early Action Program: projects proposed for the next few years, funded by the Prop K half-cent sales tax for transportation.
Head to the SFTP outreach page to view fact sheets and presentations in English, Chinese, and Spanish as well as current opportunities to hear about the plan in your neighborhood and make your voice heard! 中文READ MORE
Through April 2014: Track your bike rides with the CycleTracks Smartphone app!
The Transportation Authority, working with the SFMTA and researchers at UC Davis, is re-launching the CycleTracks smartphone app. CycleTracks helps users track their San Francisco rides, and uploads route data so researchers and planners can learn about how and where people ride.
In 2010, we used CycleTracks to learn how important bike lanes are to San Francisco riders. We were able to use the thousands of trips submitted to help our SF-CHAMP travel demand computer model learn about what cyclists like, and to understand how many more people will bike with more bike infrastructure.
The 2010 data was collected before the addition of much new bike infrastructure put in place over the past few years, and now we want to see how the new facilities have changed the bicycling landscape. Download Cycletracks now for iOS and Android. READ MORE

MyStreetSF Projects Map
In March 2013, we launched a beta-test version of the MyStreetSF interactive map. The map shows all projects currently underway that are funded by, or prioritized for funding by the SFCTA. 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. The map also includes a comments section that we encourage users to fill out so we can correct, refine, and improve the map.
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’re currently actively seeking candidates for several of our CACs: representatives from Japantown and the Western Addition for the Geary Corridor Bus Rapid Transit Project; and representatives from the areas around the Balboa Park BART Station for the Balboa Park CAC, which we participate in, along with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. There is also a 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!
