Jane Kim Announces “Break the Gridlock” Plan To Address Traffic and Transit in San Francisco
Jane Kim announced “Break the Gridlock,” her plan to improve transit options and address traffic congestion in San Francisco.
“According to a recent study, San Francisco has the worst traffic in the country,” said Kim. “Our city has added approximately 100,000 residents in the last decade, and our public transportation infrastructure hasn’t kept up. We need to break the gridlock.”
San Francisco needs an efficient and accessible transportation system. Traffic congestion clogs our streets, pollutes our environment, frustrates residents and negatively impacts our economy. Jane Kim is committed to reducing traffic and improving transit and other modes of transportation.
As our mayor, Jane Kim will:
- Improve Transit and Invest in Other Modes of Transportation
- Fund more buses and longer MUNI cars
- Build a citywide network of protected bike lanes
- Invest in a regional ferry system
- Improve customer service and amenities like wi-fi access on MUNI
- Implement Vision Zero to reduce traffic fatalities to zero
Reduce Traffic Congestion
- Double the number of traffic enforcement officers to keep intersections clear and traffic moving during rush hour
- Implement reasonable regulation on ride-hailing companies to make sure these vehicles are complying with traffic laws
