6:18 pm
experiences much congestion along and focuses the liability of mission and commercial corridor so the goal again is to (inaudible) all this improved (inaudible). >> outreach we have meetings often the (inaudible) on the corridor the meetings were held on the corridor that's where we have a wide variety of people in attendance and not only the meetings 25 hundred flyers with 10 thousand (inaudible) and also online we created an online
6:19 pm
survey for people to provide their input what they thought about the project and parking improvements not only a transit corridor but on the sides (inaudible) develop those they're welcome (inaudible) the project will be a political approach to look at the transit and see what we can do to improve the impacts el especially on the safety part so from some or serving i have a summary on some of the summaries are here and maybe on the power point but almsly we asked about the transit only lane where people live and how they commute to the neighborhood their impacts on the projects like this and over
6:20 pm
bundy there was a transit only lane along the corridors that go through 80 percent of people (inaudible) on the survey (inaudible) also as i mentioned we've also have submitted our in june of last year, we committed an application the application that the city submitted for federal funding with that, we received a variety of support letters if neighborhood organizations we've been working with as we made our way through the project so what are we are doing our proposal as we look at third street and again, the limits are 16th street between terrace and
6:21 pm
third street and currently it is two lanes westbound and third street two lanes going westbound direction and one eastbound our proposal to take one of the traffic lanes and convert it into the corridor in eastbound from shorts to bryant street physically narrower and unable to fit into both transit only lanes and be a commercial corridor if 0 approximately bryant streetcar towards third street it widen two transit only lanes in both directions so, now the consequences of this looking at the usage of 16th street between castro and 16th street two bike lanes we're fast
6:22 pm
with the relocate if transit to those we don't have bike lanes only to shift the lanes if 16th street on the 17th street it will create the lanes continue mission and 17th street so mission fire station. >> along the transit only lane we're looking to update some of the traffic infrastructure fiber options and creating a series of - the new traffic stops and we're moving the transit to near side to the far side and working with the community we with got their feedback in the corridor and made adjustment to our plan
6:23 pm
this is just a snapshot of what it looks like it shows did transit lane in the commercial corridor and towards the bryant to 7th street and two transit only lanes we're expecting improvements up to 25 percent along with improved safety within the corridors and also by having a more efficient system will be - at this point, i'll to thank my team members to bringing us where we are today and ann i've mentioned for the work hard and to others and they're also with the
6:24 pm
community and j.j. r the support chair of loourtd and provided valuable input for this project (inaudible) thank you. >> questions or comments director ramos. >> i had a quick question the area between church and bryant where we will not go with the westbouor space two dedicate lanes can you talk about that. >> we (inaudible) street wide. >> uh-huh. >> and the corridor a high demand for input with the two transit only lanes and the

6:27 pm
road diets on santa fe and chavez and bayshore and future spreadsheets and masonic and the raising of i 2 the fruition and danger is reached epic proportions pushing the families and commuters is no solution so we propose we really think big long term san francisco deserves a visionary regional acholic beverage approach we think we need citywide underground to accommodate the density and bring it into the future put our energy into incentive based positive instead of negative carrageenans we can do this thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker, please.
6:28 pm
>> (calling names). >> thank you peter straus puc importantly the transit rider we're very much in support of this project and urge to approve it today, the dpranz with the best invasions we've started to implement and we're glad to see them expanded to the location in 60 years we might think the subway on 16th street i'm pleased part of proposal in the center the streets fiscal along the curbs and the center we're better for reliability and urge the agency to be bold and visiony to look for center lanes
6:29 pm
and late night want to lastly want to expedite this project especially the electrification i understand is stretching out certainly years we wanted to see this fast tracked and in exclusion to support this is the sort of thing we want to see thank you. >> thank you, mr. straus. >> christopher (calling names) the last person to fill in a speaker. >> i'm christopher's i'll special hr o n e s thank you. >> and i'll also speaking on behavior the san francisco rider a planner and a residents of san francisco and i ride the 22 bus i want to briefly state my support for the project prior to moving here to self-san
6:30 pm
francisco i worked on similar transit prioritization projects in new york city and brooklyn i've heard about the benefits they're real real benefits in brooklyn and here the muni estimates 5 minute costs savings in the corridor for rider that didn't maintained seem like much efficiently the borders nerk a real differences in people's lives and the safety benefits in the corridor that were briefly alluded to make this a worthwhile and important project and want to reiterate my support thank you for the
6:31 pm
opportunity. >> (calling names) the last person to address. >> thank you, president and commissioners mark taxi works alliance the sfmta generally supports the transit lanes is not taken examined overseeing changes because we were not aware this will will be coming up now but i confidentially speak for the board to say we do support those transit lanes, however, i have a few comments one of which is under the resolution i believe on the agenda although the description of the lines describes them as taxi transit lanes the discrepancy in the resolution says establish buses only lanes and therefore, for the purpose of clarification important to note those would and should also
6:32 pm
include taxis so the other comments i have is that left turns are going to be restricted under this plan along 16th street and as you did with the changes but made on mission street i approved the changes but also committed to look at expectations for taxis for left turns that make that commitment along 16th street and really take into account those intrshthsz when taxis can't make left turns especially on the long blocks we have to take people a long ways out of their ways and costs the passersby more money with the levels of traffic, you know, it really would be helpful to have those left turns and the last thing i'll say is that i simple emphasize those who you are concerned with the traffic and
6:33 pm
not look far to see what is probable the main trust the tmcs. >> we have one more speaker card. >> we have one more too. >> please do. >> i already sent a letter to the board so i'm not going to read my letter i'll read a letter from someone that couldn't have made it so, please know i'm going to read one of my condominiums with the development in the pipeline with the warriors stadium not been an adequate independent traffic study for the cumulative impacts for this project it is a dangers plan that needs serious consideration for a multitude of
6:34 pm
reasons diane i live in the outer mission and need muni and my car to get around town especially with the in increment weather i sometimes ride a bicycle recreation usually on a bike path but i'm beyond any acknowledge so street changes were out of traffic like the bus lanes and the major corridors for 16th street and van ness and geary boulevard will limit any mobility rather than promote my use of busy appreciate and utility lists the bus lanes proposed bus lanes from my prospective are ageless and they propose new design to make room for private buses alongside
6:35 pm
accident curve side lanes by physically challenged commuter most of older or less reading passersby prefer the curve side feel safer and much easier than the center lanes if you'll help to move the bus i might put them in the middle or so otherwise the other people keep them curb e curve side. >> david schneider is the last person. >> good afternoon. >> congratulations on the location past the aspirin. >> regarding this particular item i think there might be a way of achieving the battle between public yours and cars so therefore i wonder if any study
6:36 pm
that is all has been given to reengineering 16th street and 17th street streets as one way to accommodate the way of traffic flow for private automobiles i on a balance might be a good thing in this city sure i'm part of public transportation i'm a taxi driver i appreciate those red carpeted lanes for the cabs to help us get through i appreciate getting into handicap zones with the decalifornia's to pick up those folks i think in order to strike a balance to public traffic and cars and muni and so forth instead of just a super carpenter lane for great no one
6:37 pm
else o congestion make 16th street and 17th street to flow in one direction. >> thank you very much. >> anyone else? who worries about to address the board >> the pleasure of the board. >> director first. >> so i had a question for staff about the one of the members of the public brought it up in the center the broadly during the outreach we've seen the disability community i realize it is good to support the center lane but the people with disabilities it is challenging to center broadly islands. >> yes. my apologies i failed to mention we provided a presentation to mac so the presenter couldn't be here today
6:38 pm
great. >> we get the details in terms of all the stuff we're working with that and anyone else in the community you outreach to they're here to talk about their concerns so thank you to the member of the public for bringing that up. >> i'll be supportive of this item he commend staff for the good work and the tuesday to the public for all the comments i feel the transit only lanes are needed to accommodate the lanes by so many yours in the city and people often say things like it only saves 5 minutes so the transit rider that 5 minutes twice a day 5 times a week turns into quibble an hour when but multiply that by the amount of people only a third, that is like 5 hundred hours per day the
6:39 pm
stuff adds up and the constraint as a aide we is it have to doing everything we can with the limited resources this is one of the ways to speed traffic and save money as we run the system when we get our coaches in the dedicated lanes it is less accidents and in the long run everyone from my prospective wins that's a saves put into the system to benefit everyone regarding the safety concerns i appreciate the vigilance that staff has shown as the director and at member of the public brought up the reason why i permanent like the center lanes is because you never have to cross the length of the street at one time if you're trying to go the opposite direction you've got to get to the other side of
6:40 pm
the street that's cross the whole thing but in any one direction only the middle i think outside the box is welcomed for a lot of folks and indeed also the transit only lanes actually calm traffic and make it safer by the way, less cars traveling in those option lanes with respect to the people backing out of their driveway i live on judah train goes by on a dedicate right-of-way during the peak times my neighbors and i have to back up into a lane the only lane there are cars that can travel along and if not a train coming in the other lanes if you're not careful but that corridor is a safer corridor because of the traffic calming nature the dedicated lanes and
6:41 pm
the way it constrains the speed sulfate as a result of so staff did a grook i want to see it go further out the 22 is an important line of connectivity a lot of workers that don't think that line to get the jobs up there it is painful to ride it line because it is so slow it is my great pleasure to make a motion to approve this. >> motion is there a second. >> i just wanted to be clear for the record to mr. director rubkeers points the red carpet lanes will be open to the taxicabs i'm not sure we need to change the legislation but as long as we're clear on the outstanding their clear and that
6:42 pm
will address mr. god bless berries point but make sure we're there. >> shawn kennedy and, yes, that is correct and. >> thank you to staff the outreach was quite exhaust and i think you got a lot of good feedback and appreciate the corridor data in pdf which stops should go and what one stays and a as director ramos pointed out for people not to use their cars every single trip and we need to move more people a lot more development with more people and jobs the only way to move the
6:43 pm
people with the 16th street to move them on transit make it safer for walking and biking on the biking note i'd like to point out we're moving the bike lane off 16th street on the 17th street it is an awkward connection between the railroad tracks and the uc building i'm not the in some note in the bike program going forward that's an awful contribution e transition it is challenging to make the transition across the railroad tracks but excited to support this. >> so we have a motion and >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the i's have it. thank you. >> now we'll go into closed session i mentioned earlier it is a 10 or 15 minute break and the room has to be prepared for
6:44 pm
that. >> mr. chairman the discussion to vote whether or not to conduct a closed session. >> second. >> any further discussion. >> they'd. >> decorations please be advised no discussion announcem session the directors met to discuss first of all, we'll wait for sfgov good the brooshgz met in closed session to talk about the jack case for the recolleagues of t line the board of directors voted to settle the jack case and no discussion of anticipated litigation directors an appropriate for the disclose or not disclose. >> move not to disclose the information. >> second. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the i's have it. >> directors moving back up through the agenda back to item
6:45 pm
8 an opportunity for the members of the public to talk about the matters not on to today's agenda (calling names). >> yes. >> good afternoon my name is robert miller i hold a medallion that was grand to me and my colleagues in july of 2012 i work at yellow cab it was a great dune the purpose of the medallion was for granting the part time explanations to have experienced drivers out there at peek times driving a cab or the limited to 90 hours a week that
6:46 pm
purpose is kind of gone cue to the change playing field with the tmcs wiping out the fleet business is sitting on the lot at any given time the other purpose for the medallions to regard are experienced cab drivers for some reason didn't get a full-time medallion and didn't want to purchase one at my age 63 purposing was was not on the horizon i'm still an experienced cab driver since 1979 i need the medallion director ran has determined the programs purposes that is gone, however, i still deserve the medallion and like to keep it
6:47 pm
and director reiskin to perhaps confer within director rahaim and see if you will reverse your decision and have the board consider it we didn't have much in the way of hearing on this of director rahaim he made the decision and we had discussion afterwards i'd like to see the decision restored i need the money nine hundred bucks a month thank you. >> >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon. >> good morning. >> good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your listening i've been here before on s 23 i'm robert freed beggar driven since 1979 like my friend bob miller a medallion and varix
6:48 pm
medical care and he rent-controlled part time i come home on the 22 at 11 and 12 o'clock at night i'm 66 this year you saved my life when i gave me that medallion these companies were lobbying me and i never believed a system like this if you got everything and a few worked i changed that i've told her this story is a great story the mta gave us those s medallions and out of blew your articulating them away of us i've driven people for a long, long time in this city none of my passengers have been injured i'm good at what i do i'm limit 10 hours on the operating tackle i have to go up there in a couple of weeks we'll
6:49 pm
not survive and seems like kate made this decision because of things we have no control i have to go to the companies not take it on your own they broke the rules i apologize but we shouldn't be punished we can't go back to being gate drivers i know we i'd like to take this opportunity thank you for your time if i say the right word before i'm dead he wish you change for us thank you. >> thank you (calling names). >> hello good afternoon. >> some of this will be represent tush i'm in support of medallion the decision to take away the s medallion is a california lose had you mid-market and useful it we were issued because of merit now all
6:50 pm
of a sudden after driving four years nowhere else it gains along with the drastic loss of t n t competition the loss is $10,000 a year we'll be completely crushing to our income at our age is it impossible to work a a drastically increased amount to make up for that the income one of my passengers i was telling about this story likened it to throwing salt on open wound the taxi companies support it and the large taxi companies support it we're 60 percent of fleet it is difficult to see how the s medallion will hurt anything wild a public forum some kind of
6:51 pm
a public forum and i don't know how that works in support of this issue. >> thank you tech sf. >> (calling names) and then joe. >> hello my name is ed, i want to say thank you very much for this s medallion program this what was created to help the driefrdz that have been driving thirty plus years it is the great work at yellow came back, we get 8 days out of thirty that supplement our income and serving the public for thirty years and thirty plus years i want to say that it is great to have this program and i hope that either the board will look at continuing the program or kate can be help to look at it further in a dive way that will enable us to serve the public
6:52 pm
and be cab drivers thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> mr. schneider. >> again once again belated afternoon may not for obvious permit holders if i understand right to asset manner for a hearing on the sfmta agenda two people can do that officially one is that director of transportation and the other is the city attorney i think certainly he'll correct me in any instance, the director of transportation i'd like to formally request that the interest be a full review the s permit program and considering
6:53 pm
taxi distributors torres decision to revoke that you can currently dba go back to the legislative history to see what the s permits were created nothing precludes you from considering operating realities right now and perhaps the chief operating reality right now is that if this program is killed off for seats one and thirty from the professional senior drivers the quality of service to the taxi driving public will be co-o dwe allowed do you want that chair i's man set this up for thank you. >> next speaker, please. >>
6:54 pm
(calling names). >> good afternoon. >> name is joe i'm with the green cab have a s medallion it makes no sense doing away with taking any taxis over the street the s medallions wall we're doing is glow a tahoe take off experienced drivers i don't know how many will stay in the industry and earner to money now the doing away with the medallions means we're decreasing the amount of cabs on the street and giving uber and lyft the opportunity for more cab takes jobs fewer cabs and push them towards the right share of services i'm not normally a paranoid
6:55 pm
individual but i'm wondering in the mta is trying to do away with the cab industry first-rate cab takers if you're anything in the 8 thousand series and the s medallions that is exactly what you're doing your sdainl the industry san francisco has been a leader requiring the taxis they lower the carbon footprint in favor of ride share services that closing the streets with the type of vehicle they used to derivative the city can regulate not choosing to san francisco as retreated from their goals and perhaps scrape the cab industry in 1990 the each one taxi
6:56 pm
omitted 59 tons of green house gas emissions and the average taxi has half as much thirty times your time is up. >> >> (calling names). >> again director nolan and members of the board i'm greening i was here two weeks ago the idea of taking away s medallions which is a miss not only s medallions the document we signed when those were handed out single operators taxi medallions to be a single driver as the name applies is single operators you can operate thirty hours a week, 5, 8 hour shifts
6:57 pm
or up to 90 hours a week, 6, 15 hour shifts the name shouldn't be single operate senior operator we feel special operators we're special people i've been driving a taxi for 35 years my consumers are near may age they call me their friends not just consumers at the least this program of the s medallion is part of the standard for other 12 years this is isn't right to 0 with benefits from the change there is a lyft for many years then the lyft created we had a lyft every working driver was on the list in the exact order and created prop k
6:58 pm
well according to this printout from the website today, there were over 3 thousand people on the list in 2011 so they aggressively weighed those people out no cars to drive and they were the medallions now forget it leave the medallions with the people that run them and go on from there when their next needed thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> thank you, again mark speaking for the san francisco taxicab alliance in support of s medallion program and just to speak personally i have a regular medallion i've been like overseeing drivers been a driver for more than thirty years about 5 years ago i was awarded a widen fall of $200,000 when
6:59 pm
they made the male not paid for worth it hundred and $50,000 minus the mta cut my fellow drivers with the same or better experience have the s medallions find those about to be pulled out from there them where's the fairness in that i believe those medallions serve a good public purpose there are times that every single one of those cabs is needed because they're only on the street a number of limit hours they're not out there competing against you know other cabs and other drivers at the slowest times i can also is on behalf of green cab where i work that these medallions allow for flexible scheduling of drivers i
7:00 pm
don't know how other companies work if an s medallion or green cab want to work a 8 or 6 hour shift we craft other shifts around that because they don't have to be on the street all the time so it really allows for a lot of flexibility it is why companies are still paying s medallion holders inform their medallions and why other companies and most as been said the larger keypads most of smaller companies support the continuation of this. >> thank you. >> (calling names). >> last speaker is steering. >> the everywhere cal hallow it interesting we can't consider it anything we have highway 101

7:14 pm
for density we're trying to get out there with the message will transit services is reliable the best way to get downtown with the super bowl week and get the people the information to get around. >> to the board questions or comments. >> just one it is going to be fascinating to see what that level of pco coverage of downtown i know one of the ways that you know we're tried to make the market street with the pcos that will be faichltd to see if we have so many pcos we have absolute compliance by the car drivers to see what f that impact spaed out so i'm looking forward to seeing this i know it is a good test of what we can do. >> thank you. >> yeah. as we have from eye other major events we've certainly learn a lot and we'll
7:15 pm
be making adjustment as we learn as well. >> a few other items thank you. >> just wanted to give you updates one the agency has received the w t s the women seminar the bay area is the year of the award it honors an organization for pertaining the events of the women in the transportation and recognized because of our recent initiatives and pharynx and involvement in the f t s the national groups it is a great honor to be awarded by our chapter the award will be presented at the annual event this spring and will be submitting our nomination to the international with regards
7:16 pm
competition to great recognize there and on to more menu detain things perhaps with regard to the state budget last week comboesh unveiled his 2016-2017 state budget it is past one a robust budget that tell us the fiscal year restraint to strengthen the economy and resubmit for the transportation in last year's special session that didn't yield go anything that the legislation didn't end up acting so resmimentsd the same proposal which includes things like the $65 road improvement charge for the vehicle as well as gas tax, additional cap & trade precedes
7:17 pm
and other things generally it is his budgeted is strong on transportation it does slightly decrease the state transit assistance program slightly that is currently $351 million one of the states sources we have in our operating budget for you on the board recall this was cut back in 2009, 2010 so this is not a significant cut we're still hopeful that gets bumped up as the burlthd budget goes through the process the proposal that he put forward in the special session is back on the table as part of whole budget with something that
7:18 pm
happens outside of the budget so a little bit unknown so the budget will go to the hearings and next milestone will be revised that is the governs revised budget we'll he'll put out in may and hopefully on time recently so i guess descent in terms of the big picture the governor is focused on the transportation so we'll keep you posted on things of relevance with the budget process. >> no 1950 rail. >> he's proposing generally a greater cap & trade investment so the main funding space will think cap & trade formally get 25 percent of cap & trade fund so the amount of sxad funds available increases the portion
7:19 pm
that goes to the amount that goes to california high speed rail so he's remained fully committed to the high speed rail. >> are you unable diesels wanted to let you know we're switched from bio to renewable diesel it is cleaner and easy on business engines and so moving from traditional diesels what a good step forward for maintenance but with the emergence of renewable diesel as a substitute we get all the same benefits without the challenges in terms of air quality and lower green house gas emissions which will help over process more reliable it requires less
7:20 pm
maintenance here and the filters were getting clogged by the bio diesel had to be replaced so we wanted to do that just if you want to get technical both of the fields use bio feed sources that is oils and they're proud through different processes so this fuel will allow us to get the benefits from the bio disposal without the downside the mayor calls the whole city to do and kind of jumped to get to the front of the line with the benefits we saw from it so citywide it should reduce the green house gas emissions by 50 percent. >> sound like a big number anyway we're glad to be a part good furiously and the city last
7:21 pm
item update you on the newer technology for the taximeters the states regulate oversees previewed the first meter last month in is not k pc but the regulation for taximeters here in san francisco were the first city to get them all in one hardware and software mr. chairman for the taxis a number of firs for the smart phones gps technology to calculate the distances traveled as well as the fair and they use the tire are taxation's to do that and this combines the meter and the payment system into one - they
7:22 pm
can if they choose to place expensive updated equipment and reduce the cluster on the dashboard for the smart phone for rider so it should be a smooshth experience and make things like fair that splitting easier apparently the new electronic meertsz are less for fraud and single simple to use device allows for flexibilities in terms of shifts, faster disbursement for credit cards and modification to gate fees so it should make the system more be flexible and dynamic the standards the state agency given the flooerl approval for the gps
7:23 pm
based taking operating system for meeshtsz statewide with a full certification after that it is kind of a conditional certification for the time being any licensed taxi in california has the option to use this technology now it certified and those meters start 200 and 26 of the fly wheel taxi company so what will start to see those roll out and up to the rest of the industry whether they adopt it a step forward and president's report. >> thank you director reiskin. >> questions or comments. >> members of the public questions or comments. >> yes. mr. gru beggars on topics that were address by
7:24 pm
director reiskin only. >> yeah. i'd like to comment on the super bowl and first like to say i think that i and others in the industry are greatly appreciate of the thoughts and attention to the providing taxi service to people who are going to the san francisco events specifically the nfl experience and the sustainable events i just a word of caution that where there are street restrictions and closures and taxis and other authorized vehicles are the ones public school allowed to use those streets there needs to be enforcement and enforcement in the zone around those restrictions because i can easily foresee those streets so
7:25 pm
0 completely clogged with tmcs the vehicles that are authorized to get there including inteshgz will not to have assess they'll sit outside the restricted zones waiting for people so you know streets can't be blocked it is a simple way of putting it the other things in regards to the super bowl and what was alluded to by tom maguire i saw a news article apparently the super bowl committee reached a deal with uber it organisms executive rights to pick up at the super bowl in what universe that can't people choose to take a taxicab to a public events i ask. >> and urge you with the utmost urgency to wire into this
7:26 pm
if it is true to get involved we cannot be shut out. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> commenting. >> yeah. i'll agree with mark i'm wondering how to get to the transit things and what hours are the parking control officers on enforcement and i also i just don't understand if someone wants to take a taxi where will we drop them off and will be they have to walk it is outrage and i also heard that the homeland security is the not allowing the tmcs to come in the super bowl because of not proper background checks why are they allowed executive use and what about the cabs if
7:27 pm
santa fe and the surrounding areas and uber will be surging pricing it whether cost a future maybe that's prefer to take a taxi where will we drop them off and pick up i urge you someone from the committee needs to intervene half a million dollars goes a long way and certainly those people and if they wanted to take a taxi $55 it will be cheaper for people to take a taxi and you know believe it or not they will prefer to do that so, please someone talk to - thank you. >> anyone else's wish to address the boards? >> good afternoon. >> regarding. >> staurm please.
