PROGRAMS UNDER DEVELOPMENT
The goal of the transit pass is to make transit affordable and accessible to residents. The pass will be loaded on Clipper cards, and will have functions unique to Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island.
Basics of the Transit Pass include:
- Mandatory transit pass for new (market-rate) residents
- A discounted pass for longtime residents and those living in below market rate housing
- Compatibility with multiple transit agencies, including SFMTA, AC Transit, and BART
Transportation Affordability Plan
This plan is intended to provide a transportation cost-reduction program for anyone living in below market rate housing, as well as anyone who moved onto the island before 2011.
Proposed benefits for the Transportation Affordability Plan include discounts on:
- Transit Pass
- Car share and Ford GoBike memberships
- Delivery of food and other goods
Tolls: Residents will receive one daily round-trip toll payment, along with toll credit for transit trips (where toll credit is accrued after a certain amount of trips are taken by transit).
More Trips via Public Transit and Rideshare
The City's goal is to have at least 50 percent of trips to and from the island made by sustainable modes, such as public transit, rideshare, or ferry, instead of solo car trips.
We’ll work toward this goal by:
- Requiring residents and hotel guests to purchase a Transit Pass
- Offering car and bike share options
- Offering carpool and vanpool ridematching services
- Instituting a guaranteed ride home program, where residents who go to work via transit or carpool receive a free ride home in case of an emergency
- Providing a free on-island shuttle
- Providing an on-off island shuttle/vanpool service to frequent destinations that Muni doesn't serve directly
These Transportation Demand Management strategies will be phased in over the course of several years as the Treasure Island Development Project progresses.
SFMTA Parking Policy
The SFMTA will price and manage public parking to increase access to parking while encouraging residents, workers, and visitors to walk, take transit, or bike instead.
Goals of the parking management policy:
- Encourage walking, transit, and biking
- Make parking more accessible
- Ensure parking is available for those who need it
- Help pay for new transit
As each part of the Island is rebuilt, all publicly available on- and off-street parking will be priced and managed to help achieve the overall goals of the transportation plan. All parking fees paid on Treasure Island will go back to funding the new transit to serve the island. This is a unique benefit that only Treasure Island receives—parking charges can only be spent to benefit the island.
As homes in newly constructed buildings become available, residents with cars will pay for parking separately. It is anticipated that most of the residential parking (approx. 80–85 percent) will be provided in subterranean garages underneath residential buildings. All other parking on the island, both on-street and off-street lots and garages, will be publicly available.
The SFMTA Board is expected to adopt this policy in the coming months Spring 2017. It has already been adopted by the Treasure Island Development Authority and the Board of Supervisors, as part of the Transportation Implementation Plan, the Environmental Impact Report and the Treasure Island Development Agreement.
