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).

2013 Annual Report now available
2013 was a productive year for the Transportation Authority: we prepared the San Francisco Transportation Plan, our long-range investment roadmap and policy blueprint. And we moved another robust group of projects forward through the Prop K, Prop AA, and OneBayArea Grant programs, including safety, access, capacity, and affordability projects as well as the innovative Van Ness Avenue and Geary Corridor Bus Rapid Transit projects. Major capital projects of the Prop K plan—Presidio Parkway, the Transbay Transit Center, Central Subway—are also under construction, catalyzing economic development and generating thousands of local jobs. Read more in our 2013 Annual Report. You can also download a PDF of the Annual Report Powerpoint presentation we made to the Transportation Authority Board in conjunction with the report submission.
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
Budget Czar Game to Receive a National Planning Achievement Award from the American Planning Association
The wildly popular “Be the City’s Budget Czar for a Day” website, developed as a tool to assist with outreach for the San Francisco Transportation Plan (SFTP), San Francisco's 30-year blueprint that guides investment in the city’s transportation system, has been selected for a National Planning Achievement Award for Public Outreach. The Budget Czar website, which the SFTP team launched in Fall 2012 to hear input from the public was a critical input to the recently-adopted SFTP. This is the fourth award for the website, having also been honored at the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting as a winner of the Communicating with John and Jane Q. Public annual competition as well as by the Northern California Section and the California Chapter of the American Planning Association.
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
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 three of our CACs: one additional member for the Geneva-Harney BRT Feasibility Study Community Advisory Committee representing the Oceanview, Merced, and Ingleside neighborhood; 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; and 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!
Get on the email list for one (or more) of our project newsletters, for notifications about upcoming funding or business opportunities, or vacancies on one of our Citizens Advisory Committees. Subscribe now.
