Field Guide to the Regional Transportation Agencies of Northern California [26 Dec 2008|04:18pm]
San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA)

The San Francisco County Transportation Authority administers and oversees the delivery of the Proposition K (Prop K) half-cent local transportation sales tax program and New Expenditure Plan, which was passed by 75% of San Francisco voters in November 2003. It is mottled in appearance and rarely seen outside of deep woods.

San Francisco Enterprise GIS Program (SFGIS)

The San Francisco Enterprise Geographic Information Systems Program provides world-class mapping expertise, data, and applications for the City and County of San Francisco. It was most likely transplanted from the Americas by the Chinese during their great voyages of the fifteenth century (although this claim is disputed).

San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority (SFMTA)

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's wild, ringing calls are often regarded as the voice of the north woods. It is composed of the San Francisco Municipal Railway and the Department of Parking and Traffic. It subsists primarily on a diet of mealworms and crickets.
