SFCTA logo

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Join the Citizens Advisory Committee to help the San Francisco County Transportation Authority's Citizens Advisory Committee (SFCTA) Optimize Mobility in San Francisco.

Interested in the Transbay Transit Center? Central Subway? Safer streets and sidewalks? Bike lanes? Over the past decade the CAC has helped the Authority Board guide the investment of nearly $1 billion in transportation funds into projects that improve mobility for all.

Your voice is needed on the CAC. Help them plan for the future of transportation in San Francisco.


There is currently one vacancy on the Authority's Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC). The Plans and Programs Committee will be considering the incumbent and other applicants to fill this vacancy at its meeting on November 8 at 9:30 a.m. at City Hall, Room 263. They are looking for ethnic diversity and district representation for District 7.


The Authority accepts applications on a continuous basis. Applicants are required to attend one of the Authority's Plans and Programs Committee meetings to speak on their own behalf. Note that appearing before the committee is a prerequisite for appointment, though not a guarantee. The Committee will then make recommendations for appointments to the full Authority Board of Commissioners, which makes the final decision.

New applicants will be notified about the time and location of these meetings. Once your application is received, it will remain active for two years. Your application will be considered for any openings, unless you submit a letter withdrawing your candidacy. You must be a San Francisco resident.

Role of the Citizens Advisory Committee

The Authority has appointed a Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) consisting of eleven members representing a broad spectrum of transportation and community concerns. The CAC's mission is to assist the Authority by reflecting community values in the development of the mission and programs of the Authority; and communicating information about the Authority's mission and programs back to the community. The CAC accomplishes this mission by providing the Commissioners and staff of the Authority with input on nearly all matters that go before the Authority Board and its standing committees.This includes providing comments on transportation plans, programs and studies; the Prop. K (half-cent sales tax) Expenditure Plan and Strategic Plan; project funding priorities; transportation-related legislation; and community transportation concerns.

How to Apply

Applications are due Wednesday, November 2, 2011. The Plans and Programs Committee meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 8 at 9:30 a.m. at City Hall, Room 263. Visit to download an application, or contact the Authority at 415.522.4800 for mailing options.
