SFMTA Vision and Mission Statement

Established by voter proposition in 1999, the SFMTA, a department of the City and County of San Francisco, oversees Muni (the historic Municipal Railway), parking and traffic, bicycling, walking and taxis. Over one million people get around San Francisco and rely on us to ensure safe and reliable travel.


VISION: Excellent transportation choices for San Francisco.


MISSION: We connect San Francisco through a safe, equitable, and sustainable transportation system.


Vision statements are an organization’s future desired state, and mission statements describe an organization’s overall purpose and function. To this end, the SFMTA vision statement has been refined from the last Strategic Plan to focus on the diverse transportation options available within San Francisco. The mission statement has also been modified from the last plan to emphasize the agency’s core purpose rather than a list of the specific job duties its staff fulfils on a day-to-day basis.

The intent and meaning of agency’s vision and mission statement remain consistent with those established in the last plan, and will continue to aid the agency in leading and managing the city’s transportation network. They resonate with staff across the agency, and are consistent with the expectations of agency stakeholders in fulfilling the agency’s commitment to serving residents, workers, and visitors to San Francisco. Taken together, they set a path for the agency and guide the establishment of this plan’s goals and objectives.
