Petition Statement

As residents and taxpayers of San Francisco we believe that the SFMTA's first and foremost responsibility is to improve MUNI and to make MUNI a more desirable means of transportation. It is not SFMTA’s job to make owning and driving a motor vehicle more expensive and difficult.

The SFMTA needs to be accountable to all the citizens of San Francisco. We need a balanced, unbiased municipal transportation policy.

We respectfully request that the Mayor and District Supervisors immediately stop the SFMTA from:

1. Installing new parking meters and extending the hours of enforcement
2. Enforcing Sunday parking meters
3. Increasing meter rates, fees and fines
There are currently 4,327 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Update on SFMTA activities!

Our first two requests were met some time ago.

At this point, SFMTA has painted itself into such a tight corner by destroying too much and angering too many citizens. There are too many complaints for the Board of Supervisors to ignore.

Supervisor Norman Yee introduced a Charter Amendment that would split the MTA Board appointments between the Mayor and the Supervisors. The board currently needs seven votes to reject the SFMTA’s budget. This measure will lower that requirement to six votes.

So far Yee, Campos, Kim, and Peskin are supporting this Charter Amendment. Tell your supervisor you want their support as well. The SFMTA is the one that needs to shift policies and goals, not the residents. They work for us. We don’t work for them. There is a sample letter here:
