As the Congestion Management Agency (CMA) for San Francisco, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) is assisting the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) in the Call for Projects for the 2017 update to the Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS), also known as Plan Bay Area 2040.
Plan Bay Area 2040 is a roadmap to help Bay Area cities and counties preserve the character of our diverse communities while adapting to the challenges of future population growth. It is a state-mandated, integrated long-range transportation, land-use and housing plan that will support a growing economy, provide more housing and transportation choices and reduce transportation-related pollution in the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. It builds on earlier efforts to develop an efficient transportation network and grow in a financially and environmentally responsible way. It is a work in progress that will be updated every four years to reflect new priorities.
SAN FRANCISCO'S PLAN BAY AREA 2040 CALL FOR PROJECTS
The SFCTA is coordinating the call for projects in San Francisco, working with transit operators, city agencies, civic groups, stakeholders, and the public to develop a list of new and updated projects to be included in Plan Bay Area 2040. The SFCTA will assign the county’s budget of discretionary funds to individual projects that meet readiness standards, have plan status, and are consistent with established San Francisco transportation and land-use goals. We released a preliminary project list in early September to be considered by the SFCTA’s Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC). The list will be available as a memorandum to the Wednesday, September 2nd CAC meeting. (Download the preliminary San Francisco project list, subject to change.)
Our approach to selecting projects for inclusion in Plan Bay Area 2040 is based on the policies and projects in our San Francisco Transportation Plan. In developing project priorities for Plan Bay Area 2040, we aim to:
- Fully fund existing transportation priorities
- Position San Francisco to be competitive for discretionary revenue
- Seek to increase San Francisco’s share of existing revenues going toward priorities
- Advocate for new federal/state/regional revenues and project delivery policies
- Get closer to meeting state of good repair (SOGR) and fleet replacement needs
- Make new investments in key San Francisco initiatives like Vision Zero and freeway corridor management
- Address equity issues such as affordable housing and anti-displacement policies
