  • Ability to attract workers and customers:
    Transit service, reliability
    Auto travel times, well-managed road network
    World-class streetscapes, vibrant public realm Strengthen the City’s Regional Competitiveness
    Create a more Livable City
    Ensure a Healthy Environment
    Provide World-Class Infrastructure
    Livability:
    Range of affordable and mixed-income housing
    Attractive walking, biking, and transit options
    Reliable and efficient infrastructure:
    Resurfaced streets and efficient signal timing
    State of good repair for transit systems
  • New York City: 33, 30, 34
    Three pie charts (or three bars) : only daily.
    Point is: we’re a transit first city without a transit first mode share.
    Will this change in the future?
    4 million trips daily citywide
    citywide, auto mode share is typically greater than 60%
    just over 40% of trips occur during peak-periods (about 6 hours of the day account for 40%of trips) 60% of these are work related.
    ~29% of daily trips are work-related
    1/3 of Muni’s lines carry ~3/4 of ridership
  • 27% growth in total tripmaking
    declining auto share
    Yet, significant growth in auto trips (24%!)
    in some markets individuals may drive less in future, BUT
    not for trips between SE San Francisco and South Bay
    not for trips within SE and SW San Francisco
