This November, San Francisco faced a critical turning point at the ballot box. Residents chose to send a clear message to City leaders that their priority is investment in safe, sustainable and affordable transportation that benefits all of us. Read more about our Sweep for Safe Streets here!
2014 Transportation Ballot Measures
In addition to the five members of the SF Board of Supervisors up for re-election, three transportation-related ballot measures were proposed to voters:
- Proposition A provides $500 million dollars to comprehensively improve our transportation network, making it safer and more reliable. Over 71% of voters supported it!
- Proposition B provides critically-needed transportation funding by linking it to population growth, a common-sense approach. Over 61% of voters supported it!
- Proposition L supporters wanted to roll back our transportation policy to the way it was “before all the bike lanes”. Over 62% of voters opposed it!
It is now up to all of us to ensure that City leaders keep SF moving forward!
