About San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is a representation of a City and County of San Francisco department. SFMTA is mainly responsible for managing and controlling all ground transportation within the city. The company has oversight over the Municipal Railway (also called Muni) bicycling and public transit, paratransit, parking, traffic, walking and taxis. The company serves San Francisco by providing and organizing transportation options that are constant, practical and available everywhere. Besides, it manages today's transportation system and works with its partners to plan the better transportation system of tomorrow.
It is important to mention that the SFMTA is run by a Board of directors who are elected by the Mayor and verified by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. The Board administers policy oversight, which includes changes of fares, fines, and fees, as well as budgetary approval. The SFMTA was initially established by voter mandate in 1999, and soon the SFMTA aggregated various San Francisco city agencies, such as the Muni, Department of Parking and Traffic, and since 2007, it added the Taxi Commission.
