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 (#).
