What is the “Restoring Transportation Balance in San Francisco” Initiative?
The Initiative is a Declaration of Policy which calls upon the Mayor, the Board of Supervisors, and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board to restore balance to San Francisco’s transportation policies. This is the work of a group of passionate San Franciscans who want to ensure our streets are safe, well maintained, and efficient to use for everybody.
Who is in your coalition?
Our coalition includes a broad spectrum of San Franciscans who use our streets and sidewalks, including leaders of neighborhood and district merchants associations; motorists; Muni and taxi riders; bicyclists; first responders; labor activists; advocates for seniors and the disabled, families with children, and members of the faith-based communities...[A list of individuals and organizations endorsing the initiative is here.]
