BEYOND THE BOARD
In addition to the Board of Directors, the SFMTA has a number of boards and committees that are authorized to facilitate agency governance regarding a host of critical transportation areas. Some of these entities are internal to the agency, with members who are SFMTA staff. Others are interagency committees staffed by the SFMTA and other City departments. There are also a number of citizen boards and committees designed to provide public input and involvement in the governance of the agency.
Many of the governing bodies of the agency are structured for the public’s involvement and participation.
