About TEP past work
The TEP has been an on-going process since 2005. Two significant milestones include the presentation of the initial planning documents and findings in 2008 and the development of an Implementation Strategy in 2011.
The 2008 Planning Phase documents, approved by the SFMTA Board in 2008 for the purpose of environmental review, describe a new policy framework for Muni service and proposals for route restructuring, line-by-line. An unprecedented amount of data was collected on a route-by-route level. It also had recommendations for internal operational improvements to reduce transit delay and improve system reliability. These operational improvements continue to be implemented as part of daily service operations and data-informed planning and analysis has become the cornerstone for decision-making for Muni service planning.
The Implementation Strategy reflects an update to the 2008 Planning findings after service restructuring occurred between December 2009 and September 2010. The Implementation Strategy outlines project priorities, funding needs and an implementation schedule.
2008 Planning Phase
From October 2006 to June 2007, the SFMTA captured a tremendous amount of information on its bus routes and rail lines, including exactly where customers are boarding vehicles and how many people are riding the system throughout the day. View this boarding data.
In spring 2008, the TEP staff presented its draft recommendations to a broad cross-section of stakeholders through a series of 11 citywide workshops and over 100 stakeholder briefings resulting to the most extensive public participation process. After refining the proposals to incorporate this valuable feedback, the SFMTA Board of Directors endorsed the TEP recommendations in October 2008 for purposes of environmental review.
2011 Implementation Strategy
This document outlines project priorities, funding needs and an implementation schedule. The Strategy identified $170 million in capital expenditures to continue our priority on reliability and improved travel time, as well as to implement the remaining route updates. Of the $170 million, approximately $90 million would go towards travel time reduction proposals and related customer amenities on the Rapid network. The remaining dollars would go towards terminal improvements, overhead wire expansion and other system-wide capital investments.
