In addition to a James Taylor concert and the Treasure Island Flea Market this beautiful weekend, the Up Your Alley Fair takes place on Sunday in SoMa (the 12 Folsom/Pacific will be rerouted). And don't forget: the Muni Metro Subway will be closed for new train tests for the second of four weekends.

The first weekend of summer and the last weekend of June will draw an estimated one million people into the city for the world-famous Pride celebration. While Pride weekend will take center stage in the city this weekend, don’t forget that the San Francisco Giants will begin a six game home stand on Friday. Muni service will be increased and get you out to AT&T Park for those games against the New York Mets and Colorado Rockies. Now, here's what you can expect during this weekend's Pride events.

When people talk about transportation, have you ever noticed that the conversation usually tilts toward daily experiences?

“How long is your commute, door-to-door?” is a good conversation starter. “My bus sat in traffic,” is a relatable lament, even if your bus is usually on time. “Parking was tough,” can lead to an invigorating discussion on how the city works.

No doubt the SFMTA is part of these conversations, and we talk about the same things in our own shop. But we’re also thinking about the big-picture questions.

They’re serious things like, “What more can we do to stop unsafe speeding, the number one cause of traffic deaths and severe injuries in San Francisco?” And “How are we preparing for the future of 2040, when San Francisco is expected to have more than 100,000 new households and 190,000 new jobs?”

Say “SFMTA” and most people think of Muni. This is understandable; Muni is a big part of the SFMTA, San Francisco and the city’s history.  But there’s much more to the SFMTA as the city’s transportation agency, and there’s more to San Francisco’s transportation infrastructure than just its buses and trains.

Think about the city’s streets and sidewalks you use every day: both the whole travel experience and the small details you encounter on the way.

The SFMTA is responsible for managing the city’s transportation system. Our colleagues in the agency work tirelessly to keep SF moving. We want to use this blog to start telling you more about what they do every day to make San Francisco’s transportation system work better.
