Whether or not the City Traffic Engineer’s decision is considered a Final 
SFMTA Decision is determined by Division II, Section 203 of the 
Transportation Code.  If the City Traffic Engineer approves a parking or 
traffic modification, it is considered a Final SFMTA Decision.  If a City 
Traffic Engineer disapproves or declines a parking or traffic modification, 
a member of the public must request additional review by the SFMTA of that 
decision which shall be conducted pursuant to Division II, Section 203 of 
the Transportation Code before the decision becomes a Final SFMTA Decision. 
Final SFMTA Decisions, whether made by the City Traffic Engineer or the 
SFMTA Board, can be reviewed by the Board of Supervisors pursuant to 
Ordinance 127-18.  Decisions reviewable by the Board of Supervisors are 
denoted with a pound (#).  Information about the review process can be found
