8:30 am
cost and doing a cost benefit analysis you have the reports i think the detailed report part of the packet with the detailed analysis the calculations are transparency and we vetted the numbers and the model about the sfmta and the sf ct a with their transportation model and show the calculations we should a high and low rage for the estimates we provide i think the general kind of big picture assumptions this is why we're considering it we have to make a hypothetical assumption in some of the calculations what happens if muni didn't exist for parking demand and what happened to a whole host of things we had to do that in reality a content
8:31 am
framework so it is a convert we made a hypothetical assumption you'll be able to continue to do things it will only be harder calculations as a result you know exclude a number of things value of foregone trips for example, if muni was there people would have to travel less there's a value we're not calculateing they include things for circling for parking and the costs they actually exclude the population employment growth this is a model based on the current circumstances now how much worse but the impacts will grow request population employment so we're going to look at as it is today
8:32 am
preliminary skaegz we we looked at travel time savings phone call for muni drivers but automobile drivers they save times because muni reduces congestion and looked at the improved safety and the air quality issues and safety ones we didn't anyomonetize this services with the accessibility issues we didn't look at the last one i want to
8:33 am
mention worker productivity next slide, please. >> obviously muni improves job assess and commute times it is for productivity the one we quantified the travel time how long it takes to get to work or commute, in fact, we looked that with the sfmta model and assumed a world in which muni was not there how much congestion and you put an seismic value on the cost of time and accompany with an economic estimate that is what that basis it go to the next slide we didn't monetize the productivity benefit from muni that essentially derives
8:34 am
what you're able to get in different and people working next to each muni allows the urban formula that is really hard to game-changer we looked it but as a comparison type of analysis if you replaced - if you had to add more parking because muni didn't exist you'll have to replace 11 percent of the housing units and all the additional cars to be in the city car ownerships will go way up next slide, please. >> muni reduces travel costs has that's a straight up calculation and this is a pretty straightforward calculation a car obviously costs money to not only purpose but to maintain and operate muni costs money as well
8:35 am
but on a per trip and per mile basis a set of facts for an automobile which you look at the costs biggest one is at our designation and look at that on a per mile basis that is significantly costs savings we committed that if the cost savings analysis okay muni reduces the needs to owner a car cars cost money we didn't through to be conservative not only to park at the designation but having a parish in our house car ownership in san francisco is less than 70 percent compared to 90 percent in the bay area
8:36 am
this is largely for the transportation in muni the calculation we did as detailed basically. i'm sorry. >> that the car ownership rate will video to go up to san francisco the way we calculate up to percent and the calculations how many new parking spaces so have in other words, to do that and the cost of a parking space this is an illustration of interest because it shows you how space indoes he have for a overlay of candle stick park and if you think about the value the economic value combetsdz in the san francisco you get an idea of
8:37 am
a space and other things related to car >> muni improves the environment this is obviously pretty intuitive basically the emissions per trip or per million people that use mini is less emissions we calculated that think a protocol on the cost of air reductions between the two modes and the volumes in this case and you come up with an economic estimate with that. >> safety is another one thing again on a per trip or per mile basis it is safer to travel from muffin travel relative to audit travel the analysis for all the muni travel what's the economic cost of the collision and again
8:38 am
some standard methodology that put a price tag here's some of the findings that are pretty small we look at the annual impact and the fire chief earners back. >> no. it is easier in terms of of so obviously the amount of benefits far exceed the costs by depending on the high low on an annual $630 million to 1.5 billions of which is one thousand per residents and between 350 and $7 per trip when you look at in it in presents value that is the annual number and bringing it to a constant today's value the numbers are much more impressive on a per trip basis this is an overall cost benefit
8:39 am
arbitrary this is technical between 2 and 3 which means for every dollar you invest our benefit is doibld to 3 times so overall muni is a strong investment relative to others investments out there in terms of next steps this is really more of kind of a you know feel good type of study (laughter) we do hope it improves the benefits of travel and understanding some of the discussion fitting for the day is about that there is a lot of decisions about cars versus transit and understanding the trade offs hopefully, will provide context we have a method
8:40 am
dissolution for calculating a variety of metrics we can use going forward to update and understand the investments of - to potentially incorporate those metrics into the future budgeting decided and finally a lot of things we didn't look at bicycling and others services that sfmta provides and streetscape improvements complete streetscape sf was not evaluate there were other medics beyond the scope of this study we made this study directly to lead to with that, i'm available to answer any questions you may have. >> i have a question. >> questioned. >> can you apply it to methodology to others relationships actually, it is in someways to
8:41 am
political to an individual i'm not sure if you're familiar with the federal level those are san francisco received money through that if i understand in motorbike they required a analysis and they select those projects bans which one has the history cost benefit and it is easy because you have more concrete information about the travel patterns and the streetscape about what is happening in some ways easy to do it at the local level this is challenging to try to go macro. >> did we plan to try to use this just because every time we have a lot of projects coming before us on a project based level this is even more
8:42 am
relevance this is not the issue but on a project related basis this kind of stuff makes a difference. >> director that's the goal to be having a cost benefits analysis the system this is a starting point and hope to get more and more reif i understand but terrific to quantify for the public what the benefit cost of the individual projects so the first of a journey and hopefully, we're interested in making this a model of how we look at the world. >> i'd be rim if i didn't thank jason who is sitting in the audience thank you, jason. >> director borden brought up what i want to bring up this is a fantastic tool not only on a macro but a micro project by
8:43 am
project i've not seen this come out of another traffic agency this is fantastic we're on the for the most part of calculate our benefits like director borden said we can point it to it this sort of an unusual thing. an agency >> i actually got the idea seeing that bart did it. >> seattle has done. >> bart's did to study to demonstrate bart to the region we were calculating how much we costs san franciscans when we have details so a small subtract from a unknown positive benefit that is why it is important to do this. >> i mean, i'm glad to see the awareness of the policymakers some of the information will be perfect to accepts to the
8:44 am
assembly mentioning members that are working on the transportation funding infrastructure i think this is could possible help them with the laundering and framework to address that i'm looking forward to seeing how we're going to use that and expand it what benefit does that and what benefit if the pedestrian safety and bring this before the voters. >> thank you just quickly i really appreciate this is exciting i can't wait to do so the one on better management parking this is a premise ii think we all need more information available a few things i'd like to dig more deeply into the things you've listed as not being
8:45 am
montana tied but the public health it is increasing more and more of a something we can address by way of our environment there is movement in the field of public health that is coming to light with the overall costs we live a more transportation lifestyle this is things for actively transportation i will encourage us to dig harder and figure out if it is not anyone tied maymon talk about it seems to me transit invaluable to people of
8:46 am
lower-income and i know there is a tremendous cost savings that we allow people when they don't have to own a car and finding a way to be able to help put that into sound bite or a bullet point we can get out there will, tremendously helpful when we make the case for expanding the subway or putting in a light rail those are things that are associated with direct displacement or indirect displacement and pep people to understand how to get engaged in a project early enough enough but the long term benefits of some projects will be in terms of maintaining equity get to the real investment it is a wonderful thing i appreciate it. >> those points are right on we've seen what is happening for
8:47 am
example, measuring the impacts the transportation system a lot of people working on quantifying that but the next iterations we'll quantify those i'm very optimistic we'll get there. >> thank you very much. >> well, thank you very much that's an excellent report any members of the public. >> herbert wiener now that we're alone. >> i support public transportation i came to this meeting on public transportation and leave the communities on public transportation i think this is necessary in light of the gridlock i couldn't agree more but observations i have you talk about travel time i ride the one california bus regularly there is a point of
8:48 am
interest with the busses sometimes two to three buses that fellow each other and sometimes, we have to wait a long time for business and i always say when is the next bus going to come after we have weapons of mass destruction we talk about social equity you how about search and seizure and disabled having to walk to the bus and paratransit not a solution you have to reserve a day in advance and go four blocks on a paratransit vehicle is not okay when the muni forward is creating this inequity what i want to stress this is very important some people can't say not only drive in their 80s or 90s they create
8:49 am
a danger to themselves and others i'll probably fall both that i'm 76 years of age but you'll have to give up my car sometime this is an important function that muni has your protecting the public and protecting individuals against potential injuries and accidents because of that you have to insure accessibility i wish this report would cover that those are my observations thank you. >> board members thank you, mr. moody fine report we have a quorum oh. >> mr. chairman item 13 is a vote for collection you have a member of the public. >> mr. pill pal is no longer here so. >> is there a motion? >> motion. >> second.
8:50 am
>> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> how about a little break before we do the >> item 14 the mta met in clegs to talk about the local 25 a that matter that the case with the city attorney with the directors decided to close both and conducted the policy but the disclose or not disclose the information. >> not demolish. >> >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> we're adjourned thank you very much, everybody
8:51 am
>> i have 2 job titles. i'm manager of the tour program as well as i am the historyian of city hall. this building is multifaceted to say the very least it's a municipal building that operates the city and county of san francisco. this building was a dream that became a reality of a man by the
8:52 am
name of james junior elected mayor of san francisco in 1912. he didn't have a city hall because it was destroyed in the earth wake of 1906. construction began in april of 1913. in december 1915, the building was complete. it opened it's doors in january 1916. >> it's a wonderful experience to come to a building built like this. the building is built as a palace. not for a king or queen. it's built for all people. this building is beautiful art. those are architecture at the time when city hall was built, san francisco had an enormous
8:53 am
french population. therefore building a palace in the art tradition is not unusual. >> jimmie was an incredible individual he knew that san francisco had to regain it's place in the world. he decided to have the tallest dome built in the united states. it's now stands 307 feet 6 inches from the ground 40 feet taller than the united states capital. >> you could spend days going around the building and finding something new. the embellishment, the carvings, it represents commerce, navigation, all of the things that san francisco is famous
8:54 am
for. >> the wood you see in the board of supervisor's chambers is oak and all hand carved on site. interesting thing about the oak is there isn't anymore in the entire world. the floors in china was cleard and never replanted. if you look up at the seceiling you would believe that's hand kof carved out of wood and it is a cast plaster sealing and the only spanish design in an arts building. there are no records about how many people worked on this building. the workman who worked on this

>> hi. welcome to san francisco. stay safe and exploring how you can stay in
9:44 am
your home safely after an earthquake. let's look at common earthquake myths. >> we are here at the urban center on mission street in san francisco. we have 3 guest today. we have david constructional engineer and bill harvey. i want to talk about urban myths. what do you think about earthquakes, can you tell if they are coming in advance? >> he's sleeping during those earthquakes? >> have you noticed him take any special? >> no. he sleeps right through them. there is no truth that i'm aware of with harvey that dogs are aware of an impending earthquake. >> you hear the myth all the time. suppose the dog helps you get up, is it going to help you
9:45 am
do something >> i hear they are aware of small vibrations. but yes, i read extensively that dogs cannot realize earthquakes. >> today is a spectacular day in san francisco and sometimes people would say this is earthquake weather. is this earthquake weather? >> no. not that i have heard of. no such thing. >> there is no such thing. >> we are talking about the weather in a daily or weekly cycle. there is no relationship. i have heard it's hot or cold weather or rain. i'm not sure which is the myth. >> how about time of day? >> yes. it happens when it's
9:46 am
least convenient. when it happens people say we were lucky and when they don't. it's terrible timing. it's never a good time for an earthquake. >> but we are going to have one. >> how about the ground swallowing people into the ground? >> like the earth that collapsed? it's not like the tv shows. >> the earth does move and it bumps up and you get a ground fracture but it's not something that opens up and sucks you up into haddes. >> it's not going anywhere. we
9:47 am
are going to have a lot of damage, but this myth that california is going to the ocean is not real. >> southern california is moving north. it's coming up from the south to the north. >> you would have to invest the million year cycle, not weeks or years. maybe millions of years from now, part of los angeles will be in the bay area. >> for better or worse. >> yes. >> this is a tough question. >> those other ones weren't tough. >> this is a really easy challenge. are the smaller ones less stress? >> yes. the amount released in small earthquakes is that they are so small in you need many
9:48 am
of those. >> i think would you probably have to have maybe hundreds of magnitude earthquakes of 4.7. >> so small earthquakes are not making our lives better in the future? >> not anyway that you can count on. >> i have heard that buildings in san francisco are on rollers and isolated? >> it's not true. it's a conventional foundation like almost all the circumstances buildings in san francisco. >> the trans-america was built way before. it's a pretty conventional foundation design. >> i have heard about this thing called the triangle of life and up you are supposed to go to the edge of your bed to
9:49 am
save yourself. is there anything of value to that ? >> yes, if you are in your room. you should drop, cover and hold onto something. if you are in school, same thing, kitchen same thing. if you happen to be in your bed, and you rollover your bed, it's not a bad place to be. >> the reality is when we have a major earthquake the ground shaking so pronounced that you are not going to be able to get up and go anywhere. you are pretty much staying where you are when that earthquake hits. you are not going to be able to stand up and run with gravity. >> you want to get under the door frame but you are not moving to great distances. >> where can i buy a richter scale? >> mr. richter is selling it. we are going to put a plug in
9:50 am
for cold hardware. they are not available. it's a rather complex. >> in fact we don't even use the richter scale anymore. we use a moment magnitude. the richter scale was early technology. >> probably a myth that i hear most often is my building is just fine in the loma prieta earthquake so everything is fine. is that true ? >> loma prieta was different. the ground acceleration here was quite moderate and the duration was moderate. so anyone that believes they survived a big earthquake and their building has been tested is sadly mistaken. >> we are planning for the bigger earthquake closer to san
9:51 am
francisco and a fault totally independent. >> much stronger than the loma prieta earthquake. >> so people who were here in '89 they should say 3 times as strong and twice as long and that will give them more of an occasion of the earthquake we would have. 10 percent isn't really the threshold of damage. when you triple it you cross that line. it's much more damage in earthquake. >> i want to thank you, harvey, thanks pat for
