Sec'y Peters reviews S.F. congestion plan

Posted on October 18, 2007

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board Chairman Rev. Dr. James McCray Jr. and executive director/CEO Nathaniel P. Ford Sr., met with regional transportation leaders and U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary E. Peters, who visited the SFMTA’s SFgo Transportation Management Center to see its Traffic Management System and Smart Parking Program.  


These two initiatives are part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s $158.7 million Urban Partnership Program grant awarded to San Francisco in August to implement congestion relief programs in the area.  


The SFgo Arterial Traffic Management System, which provides upgrades in signal controllers and additional software to major traffic corridors, has already been implemented in a limited capacity. The San Francisco Smart Parking program will use real-time technology and electronic payment systems at city-owned garages and in on-street parking to help motorists find parking faster.
