Short Range Transit Plan, FY 2017 - FY 2030
Approved by the SFMTA Board of Directors on June 6, 2017, the Fiscal Year 2017 – Fiscal Year 2030 Short Range Transit Plan consists of six chapters outlining the current SFMTA transit system and summarizing the operating and capital funding projections for FY 2017 – FY 2030.
- Overview of the SFMTA Transit System: The SFMTA, a department of the City and County of San Francisco, is responsible for the management of all ground transportation in the city. The SFMTA keeps people connected through the San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni), the nation’s eighth largest public transit system. The agency’s additional responsibilities include managing parking and traffic, bicycling, walking, and the regulation of taxis. With a staff of more than 5,800, the SFMTA's diverse team of employees is one of the city's largest with representation by 18 labor organizations.
- SFMTA Goals, Objectives & Standards: In 2011-2012, the SFMTA updated the agency’s Strategic Plan and developed a new vision for San Francisco’s transportation system. This updated plan better integrates the key elements and performance metrics defined in the long-range transportation plans required by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and the Metropolitan Transportaiton Commission (MTC), clarifying objectives and aiding in the prioritization and programming of state and federal funding.
- Service & System Evaluation: San Francisco is a transit-rich, multimodal city where more and more San Franciscans are choosing to leave their cars behind and use transit, taxi, bicycle, and pedestrian routes to get around the city. This shift towards more sustainable transportation helps all San Francisco residents and visitors by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality, reducing congestion, and activating the streets through increased pedestrian activities. In order to meet the needs of the city’s current and future system users, the SFMTA has updated its transit service processes - the agency brings together technology, technical expertise, and deep community insight to better understand and resolve the challenges that impact Muni.
- Operations Plan & Budget: The Operations Plan and Budget included in the SRTP outlines the projected revenues and expenses for Muni transit service as well as other transportation services provided by SFMTA. It provides a 15-year look ahead for the fixed and demand-responsive services, including the service enhancements that are a significant part of the Muni Forward initiative to make transit faster and more reliable for Muni customers. It also includes other efforts under the purview of SFMTA that are supportive of the entire transportation system in San Francisco.
- Capital Financial Plan: The SFMTA's Capital Improvement Program (CIP) matches projected funding to fleet procurements, infrastructure, and facility investments prioritized in the 20-year Capital Plan to improve the safety, reliability and efficiency of the transportation system.
- Major Expansion Projects: Under MTC Resolution No. 3434, the Regional Transit Expansion Program, the MTC identified specific bus, rail and ferry projects as priority for transit expansion in the Bay Area. This chapter provides information on the two SFMTA expansion projects included in MTC Resolution No. 3434: 1) Central Subway; 2) Van Ness Bus Rapid Transit Project.
