Guiding Principles for Emerging Mobility Services and Technology
Transportation options in San Francisco are significantly different today than they were just a few years ago. A variety of mobility services and technologies have emerged, from mobile applications that connect passengers with on demand service, shared ride van services, shared scooter services, to automated vehicles that are currently being tested on our City streets. These new mobility services present both opportunities and challenges to the safe and efficient movement of people and goods in San Francisco, which is mandated by City Charter in the Transit-First Policy.
With the goals of providing for safe, reliable, sustainable and equitable transportation choices now and in the future, San Francisco’s transportation agencies have established the following Guiding Principles for Management of Emerging Mobility Services and Technologies. These Guiding Principles will provide a consistent policy framework to evaluate new mobility services and will be taken into consideration in all San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) decisions, policies and actions regarding Emerging Mobility Services and Technologies.
