Streets Division Internship Program

Effective Date
Wednesday, January 27, 2021 - 9:00am to Wednesday, February 10, 2021 - 11:45pm


The Streets Division (formerly Sustainable Streets Division) Internship Program is hiring for summer 2021. This program is aimed at undergraduate and graduate school students who are interested in working as transportation planners, traffic engineers, and mechanical engineers. After interviewing, applicants who are accepted will be placed on teams within the agency’s Streets, Transit, and Taxis, Access, and Mobility Services divisions to work on projects that help residents and visitors of San Francisco get where they need to be safely and equitably.

We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate an ability to analyze data, convey messages effectively, and work collaboratively. Ideal candidates also have a passion for transportation, an interest in public service, and have applied knowledge of software relevant to their fields.

The Streets Division Internship Program will be hiring interns on the following teams:

  • Accessible Services
  • Livable Streets
  • Office of Innovation
  • Parking and Curb Management
  • Taxi Services
  • Transit Planning

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our internship program is expected to operate primarily as a remote internship. However, due to the occasional need for fieldwork as well as state Disaster Service Worker requirements, interns will be required to be based in the Bay Area for the extent of their internship. This direction is subject to change based on guidance from public health officials.

In addition to the teams that are taking part in the Streets Division Internship Program, the following teams are hiring interns for the summer of 2021:

  • Cable Car
  • Finance and Information Technology
  • Maintenance of Way

Positions on these teams will be filled from the same set of applicants but will have a separate interview process and generally do not participate in field trips or seminars. They also may have different remote work policies.

The deadline to apply in February 10. To apply and for more information, please visit the San Francisco Summer Student Intern Page.Questions? Email us at
