Transportation affects everyone’s daily lives; whether you walk, drive, carpool, car-share, bike, or take public transit. The decisions we make today will have lasting effects for generations to come – just as projects of the past affect our daily lives now.
Currently, there are many long-range transportation and land-use plans, studies, and strategies underway, both within San Francisco and the Bay Area region. Building and managing complex transportation systems requires coordination and planning many years in advance. Staff from different agencies need to coordinate regularly and assess these plans to determine whether progress is being made or if they need to be revised.
Guided by community input, the first phase will define a 50-year vision of San Francisco’s future that represents our priorities, goals and aspirations as a City within the larger Bay Area.
ConnectSF will create a framework toward a future that will meet our community’s needs. This framework will measure the progress of these plans, studies, and strategies to make sure they are working cohesively and moving us in the right direction. It will also allow us to make decisions and build needed transportation improvements more quickly; secure more funding from regional, state, and federal sources; and identify possible solutions to the challenges we see today, including congestion, traffic fatalities, accessibility, connectivity, and equity.
The more we learn about your priorities, concerns, and challenges of today’s San Franciscans, the better we can prepare for our future. We encourage you to be a part of this process. ConnectSF asks: what do you want the future of transportation in San Francisco to look like? Sign up for updates.
