Ordinance No. 127-18 specifying which SFMTA decisions are reviewable by the Board of Supervisors can be accessed on-line: Process for review is descried at the bottom of the agendas.

List of Resolutions passed by the SFMTA Board of Directors:

The supervisors have set up a system to appeal SFMTA Board decisions so that we may use the authority they took in passing Ordinance 180089. Thanks to the Board of Supervisors SFMTA is taking the public opinion more seriously.

There is a procedure to file appeals to certain SFMTA decisions under Ordinance 180089 (info sent by Amy from District 9) here:

District 2 has set up a map of planned sites for GobBikes and district the Supervisor, Stefani is engaging the neighbors – see this process at the end of this message.

Ed Reiskin is on record for saying the supervisors will determine who may drive in the red lanes, leaving SFMTA off the hook for that even though red lanes are not covered in the Ordinance. You may want to send them your thoughts on this and your comments regarding the red lanes and plans to expand them , and copy Reiskin and the Mayor. Contacts for the city officials are here: has a map that includes current and planned bike sites, but, this map does not appear to be complete. Check it against what you see on the streets:

We are working on a request for a single place to go to track the various hearings that the supervisors are setting up that will give the public a chance to weigh in on the SFMTA Board decisions and hopefully future plans before they spend a lot of taxpayer dollars developing programs that public opposes.

We will continue to track appeal and engagement processes.

SFMTA is taking public opinion more seriously so voice your opinions!

District 2 has a map of planned GoBike stations that may work for other districts. For some reason this district appears to be not included on the FordGoLive map.

Message sent by Supervisor Stefani:

I have been working diligently over the last few months with MTA and Motivate to plan a better outreach effort for Bike Share in District 2. Presently, Motivate and MTA have proposed seven potential sites for GoBike’s initial docking stations in our District. Our plan now is to gather feedback from the community and organize meetings with the neighbors to learn how people feel about GoBikes and these sites. Here is what you can do to provide feedback:

  1. Fill out this surveyto share your thoughts on bike share in District 2.
  2. Review the map below to see the locations of the seven potential sites.
  3. Attend a community meeting to discuss Bike Share and the sites. Staff from MTA and Motivate will discuss the selection process and possible timelines for projects. We will provide times and locations for each of the meetings as soon as they are set.

Marina (Sites 1, 2, and 3)
Van Ness Corridor (Sites 4, 5, and 6)
Allyne Park (Site 7)
