Project Details

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which is responsible for planning, implementing, maintaining and operating multimodal transportation services in the City, requests your input as we develop the Fiscal Years 2017 and 2018 Capital and Operating Budget and Fiscal Year 2017-2021 Capital Improvement Program. 

Please join us at any or all of the public meetings listed to get more information and provide your feedback on proposed programs and projects, including proposed fare changes, both increases and decreases, and other proposed fee and fine changes.  We value public participation. Hosting opportunities for public feedback in person and online is one of the ways the SFMTA ensures that the budget is developed with public input. 


Free language assistance can be provided with at least 48 hours' notice. Contact Adrienne Heim, Public Information Officer, at (415) 701-5472 or Adrienne.Heim@sfmta.com to confirm your request.​

How Your feedback can help shape the budget

Although we have little flexibility in some areas, we are looking for public input on the budget proposals, including the following:

  • Discount for Clipper Card usage?
  • Additional 2% increase in Muni service?
  • Suggestions for other revenue?
  • Input into proposed Capital Improvement Program

The webinar and open house meetings are opportunities for you to learn about our current budget outlook and for us to hear your concerns and answer questions. 

HOw we will use your feedback

 All incoming public feedback via the webinar, open house meetings and emails will be sorted and analyzed. The information will be incorporated into the operating and capital budget documents and transmitted to the SFMTA Board as required by the City Charter. 

The SFMTA Board of Directors then review the proposed operating and capital budget in public hearings. The budget is formally adopted by the vote of SFMTA Board of Directors on April 5. Any changes to the proposed budget, as considered and approved by the SFMTA Board of Directors during budget hearings, are included in the Approved Budget document.
