Proposition AA | Expenditure Plan


Throughout 2010, the Transportation Authority worked with numerous stakeholders to develop an Expenditure Plan that articulated how revenues would be used.

The fee will fund programs that:

  • Repair and reconstruct our local streets and roads with priority given to streets located on San Francisco's bicycle and transit networks and to projects that include complete streets elements such as curb ramps, bicycle infrastructure, pedestrian improvements, and traffic calming.
  • Increase the safety and usability of streets for pedestrians, including crosswalk improvements, sidewalk repair and widening, corner bulbouts, and pedestrian lighting and signals.
  • Make public transportation more efficient, reliable, and accessible, including transit station and stop improvements, transit signal priority, travel information improvements, innovative parking management pilots, and transportation demand management.

The Expenditure Plan was developed with the following guiding principles:

  • Provide a documentable benefit or relationship to those paying the fee
  • Limit the Expenditure Plan to a few programmatic categories, given the relatively small revenue stream
  • Focus on small, but high-impact projects that will provide tangible benefits in the short-term
  • Provide a fair geographic distribution that takes into account the various needs of San Francisco's neighborhoods
  • Ensure accountability and transparency in programming and delivery
