Transportation Authority Board Leadership 

During the first Transportation Authority Board meeting of the year, District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman was elected as Chair and District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin as Vice-Chair for 2021. Vice Chair Aaron Peskin formerly served as Transportation Authority Chair from 2017-2020. 

Chair Mandelman expressed his appreciation to the Board for their support, acknowledging the unprecedented challenges for transportation at this time and the important work ahead: 

“COVID-19 has created a crisis for public transportation systems across the country. We are facing historic challenges, but I am hopeful that changes underway in Washington and the availability of COVID vaccines will allow us to restore service and reimagine transportation in San Francisco in a way that creates a more reliable and equitable system for everyone who depends on it. The Transportation Authority can play a critical role in shaping our recovery and addressing our climate crisis and I look forward to working with my colleagues, community leaders, and our regional partners over the coming year.”

Transportation Authority initiatives for this year include several major efforts in advancing equity, safety, climate protection, and economic recovery. Learn more about our goals and strategic initiative for the year in this press release
