Reconnecting San Francisco Across Streets and Freeways

With limited space on San Francisco city streets, how can we ensure that current and future transportation options remain accessible and affordable to all?

The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA), the SFMTA and the San Francisco Planning Department are collaborating through ConnectSF in creating a template for an equitable, sustainable and effective future. Their Streets and Freeways Strategy examines approaches that support San Francisco’s Transit-First, Vision Zero, climate action, and equity goals.  The strategy complements the Transit Investment Strategy released in April 2021.

SFMTA staff provided expertise in developing the strategy and is leading the Active Transportation component, exploring ways to build a connected network of bike and pedestrian routes across the city that make biking and walking safe and enjoyable. SFMTA staff from across the agency also developed strategies to manage our limited street space effectively, focusing on moving the most people with space-efficient and low-polluting modes, and prioritizing people who have the fewest choices..

To learn about ConnectSF’s strategy for connecting neighborhoods, supporting the economy and creating a more welcoming environment, join their virtual town hall on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at 5:30 pm-6:30 pm . That event will give participants insight into investing in San Francisco’s streets, prioritizing transit and carpooling, building out a complete walking and biking network, targeting safety, and repairing historical harms to communities.
