Through its CMA activities, the Authority leverages state and federal transportation dollars to complement Prop K revenues and performs project delivery oversight to assist with project implementation. The Authority also tracks transportation system performance to ensure that San Francisco gets good value for its transportation investments and prepares a long-range Countywide Transportation Plan to guide future investment decisions.
The Authority has also served as the San Francisco Program Manager for ...grants from the Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA) since 1990. In this role, the Authority approves funding for transportation projects that directly benefit air quality, through reduced motor vehicle emissions.
