This year, San Francisco faces a critical turning point at the ballot box. Existing gaps and inequities in our transportation system and a growing population means our elected officials, and residents, have to make some clear choices about transportation policies and funding — choices that will decide what kind of city San Francisco will become.
In addition to the five members of the SF Board of Supervisors up for re-election, there are three transportation-related ballot measures being proposed that will have a huge impact on our streets. Proposition A and Proposition B both provide critically-needed funding to comprehensively improve our transportation system (yay!), and Proposition L supporters say they want to roll back our transportation policy to the way it was “before all the bike lanes” (boo!). Read below to find out what candidates the SF Bicycle Coalition has endorsed, and what we’re doing to support Proposition A and B and oppose Proposition L.
Besides voting, the most important thing you can do to help save our streets is to get involved. Click below to learn how to get involved!
