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.

Community-driven transportation investment plan for the Bayview
The SFMTA is committed to delivering real projects in the Bayview that directly address the needs and desires of residents. That's why we've already committed $4 million towards building out the plan's highest recommendations. Part of that funding is a $600,000 grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to improve Lifeline Transportation services for low-income residents in the Bayview. The community will get to decide how to spend this $600,000 grant through Participatory Budgeting: a democratic process where residents come to together to come up with ideas, devleop them into real projects, and vote on where the money will go. All residents of the Bayview, past and present, are eligible to participate in this process. We will offer opportunities for folks to get involved both online and at our outreach events in the Bayview between September 2018 and July 2019.
