Governor Brown has signed Assembly Bill 1184, the first step in securing critical funding for San Francisco transportation projects. AB 1184, authored by Assemblymember Phil Ting at the request of our Chair Aaron Peskin, authorizes the City of San Francisco to tax ride-hail trips originating in San Francisco and is expected to generate about $30 million per year for transit service and infrastructure improvements. San Francisco voters may have the opportunity to approve the new tax as early as fall 2019.

“I am grateful for the leadership and collaboration of our State Legislature - particularly Assemblymember Phil Ting, and for the willingness of the TNC industry to step up and work with (not against) our local government to mitigate the congestion and mobility issues on our streets,” said Chair Peskin.
