Stop SFMTA (San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency)

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 2,972 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

San Francisco voters approved Prop E and the creation of SFMTA to do two things: fix the Muni and balance the Muni budget. Neither of these goals has been met.

San Francisco taxpayers have had enough of the parking policies enacted by the SFMTA. Making parking more difficult is not an acceptable method to control traffic congestion and finance Muni.

We do not trust a public transit agency that has no realistic vision of the streets of San Francisco, only plans for its budget, refuses to respond to the needs of the citizens who live and work here now, and piles on more public debt to finance a new controversial system before fixing the one the public relies on.

San Francisco needs a balanced, unbiased, public transportation agency that works for everyone.
