SFMTA director lists agency’s accomplishments in year-end letter

Increasing service on the F-Market line, submitting a nearly $1 billion application to the federal government for the Central Subway project, and introducing several new parking meter programs are some of the accomplishments made in 2011 by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, according to a year-end letter posted by executive director Ed Reiskin.

In a stakeholder letter that Reiskin sent out earlier this week and posted to the SFMTA’s website Friday, the executive director lists out a series of the achievements the agency made in transit, traffic, bike, taxi and pedestrian issues.

The feats ranged from bike safety training lessons to the rehabilitation of The City’s fabled cable cars.

Interestingly, Reiskin did not mention one of the more notable accomplishments carried out by the SFMTA this year — the finalization of a contract with the agency’s operators union, which is projected to save millions in labor costs over the next three years.
