SFMTA expected to extend research group’s contract

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency is expected to extend a contract with a research group to provide further study on The City’s transportation impact fee structure.

Since June 2009, Cambridge Systematics has been studying potential changes to the transportation impact development fee, a charge for downtown developments that has raised $122 million for The City since it was enacted in 1981.

Although Cambridge Systematics’ study was intended to only last nine months, SFMTA officials have recommended extending the report to the end of October to compile more data on traffic trends in the downtown region.

As a result, the SFMTA Board of Directors will be asked to increase the existing contract with Cambridge Systematics by $16,731, bringing the total cost of the agreement to $472,523.

The SFMTA board will vote on the contract extension at its meeting Tuesday.
