As a transit-first city, San Francisco prioritizes public transit, bicycling and walking on San Francisco’s streets. San Francisco is making considerable investments to improve safety and transit, through initiatives such as Muni Forward and Vision Zero. In addition to existing performance reporting by the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency (SFMTA) and the San Francisco Performance Scorecards, the Controller’s Office annually benchmarks select city services and characteristics.
The dashboards below show how San Francisco compares to peer jurisdictions across a variety of transportation performance metrics, using both publicly available and survey data. While the Controller’s Office has made efforts to ensure that performance data and analysis is as consistent as possible across peers, benchmark comparisons are not always apples-to-apples. However, benchmarking results provide useful context for the public and policymakers to assess how San Francisco compares to similar peer jurisdictions and to identify areas for further research and awareness.
