We had a briefing tonight from Julie Kirschbaum of the MTA. The project aims to develop an action plan for SFMTA that will, amongst other things, improve performance, promote financial stability, provide faster more convenient service. You can find interesting data and more thorough information on the Transit Effectiveness Project website. There is also an online survey to take, a mailing list, and information about public meetings and briefings like the one we received tonight.
The Better Streets Plan will create a unified set of standards, guidelines, and implementation strategies to govern how the City designs, builds, and maintains public streets and rights-of-way. You can be part of the process. Public meetings being in April of 2007. For more details see the SF Better Streets website.
