The San Francisco Transportation Authority yesterday released polling numbers showing support for investing in public transportation. As the federal government's support for transportation has dissipated, local transportation funding has become even more critical, and San Francisco has been good at stepping up. But we need to do more, especially as our city continues to grow. The poll shows support for a Vehicle License Fee to pay for transportation infrastructure, and support for a BART bond to upgrade the aging system. These are good numbers, but it's going to take work to get these critical transportation funding measures on the ballot and approved.
