Require new development to invest more in our transportation system to help address the impacts of growth

In 2013, Mayor Lee’s Transportation Task Force found that to meet future demand, the City needs to invest $10 billion in transportation infrastructure through 2030, including $6.3 billion in new revenue. In November 2014, San Francisco voters passed Proposition A, approving a $500 million one-time investment. They also passed Proposition B, which is projected to contribute about $300 million for transportation over the next 15 years.

The Transportation Sustainability Fee (TSF) replaces the Transportation Impact Development Fee (TIDF) to provide additional revenue to help fill the City’s transportation funding gap. Currently, the TIDF generates about $24 million a year on average. The TSF is projected to add about $14 million a year, raising nearly $1.2 billion for transportation improvements over 30 years, or roughly $430 million in net new revenue.
