Transportation - Interagency Initiatives

San Francisco is currently in the midst of implementing several major initiatives to improve its transportation systems in conjunction with three regional agencies: the SFCTA, Caltrain, and the TJPA.

The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) is the sub-regional transportation planning and programming agency for the City. The SFCTA is responsible for the City’s long-range transportation planning, coordinating with federal, state, and other local transportation agencies. In this capacity SFCTA helps to plan, fund, and deliver improvements for San Francisco’s roadway and public transportation networks.

The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (JPB) operates and maintains Caltrain, one of the oldest commuter rail services in Northern California, and San Francisco, along with San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, is a representative member of the JPB. Caltrain provides peak and off-peak connections along the Peninsula rail corridor between San Francisco and Gilroy.

The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) was created to manage all matters concerning the financing, design, construction, and operation of the Transbay Program, including the Transbay Transit Center. The Transbay Transit Center will help unify a fractured regional transportation network by connecting eight Bay Area counties and the State of California through 11 transit systems, including the future California High-Speed Rail.
