Bayview Community Based Transportation Plan

The Bayview Community Based Transportation Plan (BCBTP) is a community-driven planning effort funded through a Caltrans Sustainable Planning Grant. The Bayview district, one of San Francisco's traditionally African-American neighborhoods, is culturally rich and resilient - despite being isolated from the rest of San Francisco by transportation barriers like Highway 101. Home to greater proportions of low-income residents, people of color, and immigrants than the City at-large, the SFMTA recognizes that the members of the Bayview community are in need of a robust and diverse transportation network for access to economic and social opportunities – and are more vulnerable to the impacts of future development.

During this two-year open-ended planning process, SFMTA will partner with residents and community groups to identify transportation priorities which reflect community values and support a growing and resilient Bayview. There are many past, ongoing, and future infrastructure projects and studies across the Bayview, and this plan will bring them all together to create a clear picture of community priorities, City commitments, and future demands on the transportation network.  Bringing together SFMTA technical expertise and the local knowledge of the community, the plan will create a list of local projects for implementation that emphasize walking, biking, taking the bus, and improving access for transit-dependants groups like seniors and residents of public housing. The BCBTP will include conceptual designs for transportation improvements, a priortized implementation plan, and a funding plan to ensure the on-the-ground results for the community. Through this plan, SFMTA hopes to foster a more collaborative and responsive relationship with the residents of the Bayview.
