lot of things good flawlessly wanted to acknowledge the ground water great work we did end the fiscal year on june 30th our revenues were 15 and a half million dollars higher than the previous year overall revenues were above budget by 64 million dollars it quite a bit above budget from many categories like the transit spent $10 million over budget and state funding $14 million over budget and that concludes my remarks fees thirty millions over budget and other things including the general bus line coming up bigger than anticipated as the economy grows that derives not only the
7:24 pm
general fund but much of the rest of the revenue growth as well because we did not and did not have the authority for those revenues those will fail to our fund balance as a result will be consideringly above the 10 percent requirement so we may as we develop the budget in this coming year recommend that the capitulate on one time items but happy the revenues are strong and our fund balance is in good shape the revenues are there the approved amount every dollar we spent was authorized and we managed to stay within budget some of the details might change but from a fiscal year as we

7:26 pm
sampling of them on the laptop if we could go to the laptop give you an opportunity to see those from the home page you can easily navigate from the performance tab to the metric they're there organized by goal. >> just to give you a couple of highlights if goal one one the matrix that is fine on muni it is broke down by month and type of item and sort by type of crime as an example trying to bring this information forward to the public and another one obviously everyone is interested in on times performance from muni select by line or select by division the green is the percentage on time and the blue

7:28 pm
and large they've been going well notwithstanding with you we're working on making sure the signage is clear that everybody is doing the enforcement is clear on the enrollment definitely some bugs to work out by very well received i ran into a muni operator that said it is safer and heard from pope e people walking and buying and taxi driver it is one of our 24 zero we're on track to complete as we said we said one the first 24 months and happy to see that in place i want to acknowledge she's not here but the lead laura did a tremendous effort on the shepherding of the design and the outreach responsible for

7:47 pm
the mta didn't issue the tickets currently so the mta we think shouldn't be issuing those 0 motorized bikes we august and will submit follow-up. commentary the vehicle code didn't treat them the same as vehicles or motor vehicles the california case law states those are not motorized vehicles and in case law this should be address while the mta cited a list of non-motor vehicles this is no a list exhale but a ding importance within 0 motorized vehicles and all the vehicles we

7:49 pm
we've actually made up rules for the riders because we want to show the mta that we were serious not only about making transportation better for them but everything else in the city the best example our motorized bikes use the bike lanes and park on the street but we tell the riders not to do that out of respect for the community and percent the second point we don't allow our members to pick up and drop off scoots in our areas even though as non-motor vehicles they're not subject to the restrictions our riders don't understand why they can't take a shared small all electronic vehicle home at night we have imposed that a 4 thousand person, 50 thousand pilot project where we
7:50 pm
demonstrated through a substantial amount of data that we know how to run on street electronic vehicle sharing program with great success scoot is not uber we're not google buses we're impact face green quick and most importantly affordable we want to ask mta to stop impede listing our riders and hold off on citing the motorists until a proper form has been revised thank you (clapping.) (calling names.) >> good afternoon hello, i'm sandy. >> could you give us our last
7:51 pm

7:52 pm
cab drivers with the medallions i'd come down here on their behalf their concerned in the city decided it wants to cancel the s medallion program i wrote the original proposal by the way, that if you wouldn't take those medallions away from the completed speaker cards and documents to be included should be submitted to the clerk. to the cab drivers that have been driving for decades not in the health condition to drive full-time but drive part time and if the city decided to stop the medallions don't yank it from them but let them write out the possession of those medallions and gradually instead of devastating them financially.
7:53 pm
>> next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon. >> hi, i'm argue speaking on behalf of the obscurities for the enforcements of parking restrictions guarantee i don't ride scoot received a deceasing degree in san diego with engineering and co-founder the stature in san francisco it is map and here's the mathematics their 5 times the vision of cars and murder 5 times cleaner every motorcycle you see on the roads if you see a second riders their as efficient as a muni bus they release parking and i encourage you we're leaving all those
7:54 pm
restrictions but especially for scoot the electronic obscurities are assessable in the gasoline counterpart as a resident of the alamo scare this will negatively impact not only me but many of the people in my community thank you. >> (clapping.)

7:56 pm
residents of san francisco i'm a student myself i can tell you the great things about scoot as everyone has but specifically for the proposal and permitting i think the important thing to note here that specifically in regards to 2 hour parking and requiring prims that scoot uses space that currently not utilized all so i think the intended purpose of keeping neighborhood and areas congestion free is not better served by not allowing scoots to park in those spaces they took place space not used by cars anyways so it didn't make sense that the goal of creating less traffic not to allow scoots to park in those places it encourages less car use and also
7:57 pm
very cheap and inefficient i currently am not working i'm a student myself as the previous speaker mentioned it is clear up so regular people that does have large income can access those vehicles especially, when muni is not available i use muni all the time but late at night and other times it didn't make sense so it scoot makes sense for everyone that lives here (clapping.) .

8:18 pm
codified at the board of supervisors i think if we had the capacity to do thing like that for the cards union members we'll be doing things like that it was exciting to see and less excited to hear a degree of lack of harmony from the environment department reached it out 0 director reiskin but want to come in person and have a invitation for people and staff to come to the policy meeting on monday, september 1, '46 at 5 o'clock in room 421 we're going to analyze we're excited to hear the progress both the environmental and sustainable working conditions we for some of us we think the solution to look at the types of programs and collective bargaining if you

8:20 pm
or tasks to three or four and allowed me to get to different areas that muni if get there in certain neighbors and things like that that is another huge thing in the on demand economy like having scoot makes a difference and like you were saying coming back to the richmond area be able to drop the scoot off and not worry about it in two different areas to catch a bus home it definitely was a dream come try when scoot showed up so i notice a lot of people just in the bay area alone is 9 hundred active passengers and i know the service makes a big difference.
8:21 pm
>> (clapping). >> no one else cares to address the board public comment is closed. director reiskin we can't say discuss the substance not on the agenda i'm wondering if you could take another look at this policy and take another look and bring it back to the board. >> i'll be happy to as we indicated in a letter to you and the folks we got probably 4 hundred e-mail messages if people in support of our changing our rules what we indicates we're studying as many of you may know our old residential parking process and program and guidelines and rules enormous in terms of who is eligible and not this is one of the issues that is part of the

8:25 pm
no resisting on red as pass over why is this difference than others why not a 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. restricts like the other no turn on red restrictions why is this difference i'm saying maybe a safety issue but so many other problems with those particular blocks that the agency is not dealing with thank you for your time. >> mbes. >> motion to >> >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? 10.3 please. yes back on the agenda 10.3 authorizes the director to have a contract for transit vehicles system and negotiated contract for the services to the highest proposal not to exceed
8:26 pm
for a 2 additional term. >> david pilpal i have concerns that the calendar item didn't indicate a cells only to go to the board of supervisors and the public outreach is thin this item was not presented to the cac with significant operating changes to the passengers i'm not sure the functionality but the current policy is that late at night transfers are cut for laid night and good for five or six in the morning transfers are only good for 90 minutes at all minds this is a change policy i'm not in favor of that night transfers are a good system and additional operating details by issuing the transfers the way it proposes
8:27 pm
rather than operators giving me to passengers i'm not sure with the new transfers look like and the materials will be made of where their environmental and consistent with the city's vinyl he i'm not sure who is handicapping this i'll maybe get answers to questions and i'll strongly encourage this to be brought to the cac before it is broths back to you for approval and mbes questions or comments. >> motion to approve. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? >> 10.5 the memorandum of understanding and the bay area to clarify the rules and responsibilities to for a newly contracting for the executive
8:28 pm
director and rise the cost allocation formula. >> once again on this item it is the metropolitan transportation agency and i don't know how it happens here it is not clear when costs analysis was done to result an additional will 7 hundred plus a year the awe pensions were not done so you don't i cannot but the cac was bed-and-breakfast on the future discussions like the next generation clipper i don't believe that restated agreement was brought to them and again there are impacts on the public i understand from reading the material that the chef board meeting are public and the
8:29 pm
director reiskin is the representative for that and i look forward to learning more about that to the extent this makes the system more rational i support that but if there were more examination and looking forward to talking about with the lady to see how this impacts. >> if you had not of taken this off the agendas but i'll address the extra 2 leonardo da vinci and $86,000 a year. >> the main difference i apologize we wrote the agency rather the compilation that us upsetting some people in terms of the call. >> we're fine thank you. >> what we found in terms of elevating the overhead cost structure first of all, it wasn't rational based on a number of cost drivers but we
8:30 pm
found there was a couple of agencies shouldering all the credit cards fees i think about half of our costs we pay or charged by mtc are a huge part of costs it was through collaborative meeting as among the agency lead by manifesting and bart deanna is spearheading this an agreement among the agencies this new cost allocation formulas first of all, allocated the costs what drives the costs but secondly, that importantly allocated credit card fees but a couple of agencies was appropriate that meant for many of us there would be a cost increase.
8:31 pm
>> thank you for that i also support this the recommendation it is part of me thinking with the transportation and the board of directors and executive directors that - hold on i think it is overkill but your understanding of this. >> yeah. the cost is for a new agency not really a new agency we've discussed a transbay joint powers authority it wouldn't make sense we're creating a board to join with mtc and oversee this fair payment system that is overseen by mtc but not the operators kwhos customers rely on it. >> move this item. >> second. >> any further discussion >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> i's have it. >> temple authorizing the

8:49 pm
vision zero this has been decided and many residence including moist really value the participation in projects that effect their lives thank you to mta and the staff for listening and developing this project on behalf of supervisor jane kim i urge the board to approve this for 2nd street. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> hi good afternoon chairman nolan why do they hates us so much why cab drivers second street is the way in and out of going to the ball park for games and special fence your- why can't we be exempted from the or not restrictions you're eliminating a cab stands
8:50 pm
and, in fact, in the proposal i didn't have a chance to review them i have to work and it's a a lot of proposals here but i noticed your 're reducing the size of cabstands i have a few questions when was the eir completed have you looked at how many capacities is on first street and some of the other streets it has gotten worse with the tmcs and the other services eyeing drivers do deliver and pick up goods and services have you seen the number of cars all of a sudden you're coming to shift to another street and everything will go away you'll make it a huge mess the eir is two huge bans the numbers another question who from taxi exemption
8:51 pm
services and what kind of input to the people and were they invited and did they attends those members of the committee regardsing the available we have to make left-hand turns there's a hotels on the corner of fulsome and second we have to make the left-hand turn going north and howard to go to serve the hotels or take people from the office buildings and the residents in south beach and you're basically saying wear not going to serve those people thank you, very much for hating us. >> thank you. >> (calling names). >> david pilpal again, i'm exercised on this item i want to understand the relationship between this project and the muni gordon's i think so there
8:52 pm
are routine changes on second street and understand the bus idles and what not are not specific to the 10 and 12 is there i think ultimately the 11 and the project it's my understanding there are 26 significant impacts identified in the eir and not sufficient mission mitigation so i believe that crease additional compleng and so on that based i've not approve and encourage you not to do so. >> thank you. >> (calling names). >> hi i'd rather have 22 thousand bikes this is an 22 thousand tmcs that's for sure so you know i'm all for bikes and taxis
8:53 pm
hearing the roads and everything like that i didn't look closely at the proposals on second street you know just keep in mind when the sidewalks were wideneded on castro street it is a constant traffic jam but the pedestrians are benefiting not that big of a deal one block but for a significant stretch of street it could result in go traffic jams on second street and the pedestrians will benefit i wonder if there recent a balance between car traffic and whatnot with that said, i'm all for being a caregiver giving this thing a try i hope you continue to take feedback on the results of this thing over the
8:54 pm
long-term and consider that taxicabs are an alternate and an alternative routine to the bay bridge not an exclusive use to take people to other parts of city i hope that is an ongoing they know thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> okay. yeah thank you for this doing this project you know second street needs improvements whether the problems are, in fact, last week the traffic size like second and brilliant going southbound you can't see the restriction no will not sign because the vehicle blocks the signs so hopefully, they'll
8:55 pm
improve the student they'll up to the time put the traffic signs near the signal we'll hope that the mta's implements a policy similar on mission street in terms of allowing a left-hand turn ann at third and fourth like taxis and buses can efficiently serve the public that provides a good balance for the public in my opinion i'll oppose the restrictions but implement left-hand turns for taxis and buses that will strike a healthy balance you know after the games it is common for guests staying in the w hotels you know the enter continental on howard they like to take it to second and howard and
8:56 pm
vegetation time like the moscone center i know fulsome they went to get to the moscone center and second street a viable route to what's what i like the project is a great idea but taxis should be able to make left-hand turns. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> herbert wiener one question i have about the project about the access of automobiles if second street to interstate 80 ryan right now it is difficult to get to intestate 80 into the city will this complicate things what is is a decendents route if discounts u downtown does this project answer that question making second street into a
8:57 pm
choke point and for people trying to flee the city it will be difficult and creates congestion the other question about business stop altercations will this create a hardship and parking parking is worse in san francisco compared to 20 years ago and mta has created that by snapping up parking spaces i think at least 20 thousand parking spaces have been left from the mta and frankly, if the police department were in control of parking we wouldn't have this problem in my opinion so those are the questions that come to mind you have to answer bus otherwise you'll create a congestion problem, create problems of accessibility to integrate 80 and frankly i don't
8:58 pm
have this problem i rather take bart than drive through the freeway it is less strain but what about other motorists it is simply not i you know less cars less problems you'll have- restricting cars will creates more problems thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> good evening, sir. >> will be our last speaker. >> if you need money just go to the atm machine that's what the emphasizing said like the india if you want zero that is zero will be very soon for everything but nobody like driving everything is safe that's the
8:59 pm
way in their thinking and bike lane and limit this and that but the problem is everything that close to the bay bridge is not only owned by san francisco you have to take care of the people that have to live in east bay and all your view is micro let age looking beautiful i have a green trees but your finding a lot of people living in east bay your building power that is everyone that come to this meeting he will cry he wrote the 2007 a that's right he give you too much power look at townsend street and fulsome street all the warning on the wrong lane the full name street we're listing one lane on the fulsome street poem can't use it they
9:00 pm
pits mafia bike only i don't see two many but people not only about living and beautiful people need to make living that's why china as a lot of pollution we can't afford to eat they have to clean it up san francisco is rich now we have look at obama put a tree in the middle of the lane have you to take care of enpeople not only create a lane on the bay bridge. >> (calling names). >> she'll be the last person to address you. >> good afternoon. i'm with the san francisco bicycle coalition representing the 10 thousand strong members throughout san francisco in supportive second street improvement p
