Meeting the Transportation Needs of a Growing City - SFMTA Budget for Fiscal Years 2021-2022

Project Introduction

Review Open House Materials

San Francisco is a city that values change and innovation, while protecting the environment and our quality of life. Our growing population is testament to this forward-thinking culture, embracing both our differences and shared goals. 

Nearly a half-century ago, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors adopted a transit-first policy, which prioritizes movement of people and goods with a focus on public transportation, walking, and biking instead of private automobile travel. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency advances this core value by managing the city’s surface transportation system, including Muni, parking and traffic, bicycling, walking and taxis. Every day, over one million people rely on us to ensure safe and reliable mobility throughout the city. 

To help you understand the opportunites and challenges that lie ahead, we invite you to participate as we set out our Operating and Capital Budgets for Fiscal Years 2021 and 2022. With both virtual and in-person meetings, you will have the opportunity to learn more about what we do and to understand the tough choices that a large city like San Francisco faces.  

You can also e-mail comments to sfmtabudget@sfmta.com

Future meeting dates will be provided on this website and in public notices.

How Your Feedback Can Help Shape The Budget

With your input, the Board will examine and decide on a variety of budget proposals, including the following:

  • Transit Equity and priorities
  • Proposed fare and service changes
  • Bike projects
  • Parking fees
  • Pedestrian safety infrastructure
  • Street improvements
  • Suggestions for other revenue

These 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 live-stream meeting, 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 reviews the proposed operating and capital budget in public hearings on March 17th and April 7th. The budget will be finalized and voted on by the SFMTA Board of Directors on April 21.  Any changes to the proposed budget, as considered and approved by the SFMTA Board of Directors during budget hearings, will be included in the Approved Budget document.
