Goal 3: Improve the quality of life and environment in San Francisco and the region.

Through implementation of this goal, not only will the SFMTA strive to make a positive impact in people’s lives in the near-term, but also ensure the continued development of a more equitable and sustainable San Francisco in the long-term. As such, the agency is committed to programs like the Muni Service Equity Strategy, the city’s Transportation Sustainability Program, and long-range planning efforts with regional partners to ensure the resiliency the transportation system. Additionally, the agency will work with emerging mobility services to ensure their operations are consistent with the city’s expectations for sustainable transportation.

You can track our progress in implementing these objectives by checking out the interactive dashboards for the performance metrics. As we develop the dashboards for the performance metrics outlined in the SFMTA Strategic Plan, they will be posted online there. In the meantime, full reporting on all agency metrics is available in the monthly Strategic Plan Progress Reports.


 

Objective 3.1: Use agency programs and policies to advance San Francisco’s commitment to equity.

The SFMTA is committed to operating an equitable transportation system that contributes to the fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement of all people. The agency will continue to look for effective strategies to understand communities’ priorities and ensuring the full participation of groups that have experienced systemic oppression.

Objective 3.2: Advance policies and decisions in support of sustainable transportation and land use principles.

With this objective, the agency is looking further into the future in order to develop a better, more connected, and sustainable city and region. The SFMTA is committed to working with city departments and stakeholders to develop programs and policies in line with the city’s overarching vision, mission, and values; further establish the city’s interconnected land use allocation and transportation system; and implement proven transportation demand management policies.

Objective 3.3: Guide emerging mobility services so that they are consistent with sustainable transportation principles.

Emerging mobility services describe the transportation network companies, autonomous vehicles, and other technology innovations that continue to automate and transform the transportation sector. Over the last several years, many of these services have established themselves as competitive transportation providers in the city. With input from these companies, community stakeholders, and other city departments, the SFMTA has established a set of guiding principles to outline how these services can meet city goals and minimize negative impacts. To ensure that these services will complement public services and meet the needs of the city as a whole, the agency will continue to act proactively to understand, interpret, work with, and adapt to the innovations in modern urban transportation.

Objective 3.4: Provide environmental stewardship to improve air quality, enhance resource efficiency, and address climate change.

Building on current agency efforts, the SFMTA will continue to implement programs that will enable the city to reach its environmental goals. As detailed in the SFMTA’s Climate Action Strategy, recommended programs that may help the agency achieve this objective span near-term adaptation programs; resource conservation; and longer-term resilience projects with considerations towards California’s perennial drought risk, rising sea levels, and other climate change conditions.

Objective 3.5: Achieve financial stability for the agency.

In coordination with its city partners and stakeholders, the SFMTA will need to continually seek out new funding sources to continue delivering service and maintaining the transportation system. These sources could range from city and regional programs to federal grants. In addition to being proactive in finding new sources, the agency will effectively allocate existing funding and make the most efficient and responsible use of public resources.
