7. Executive Director’s Report (For discussion only)

  • Report on Safety
  • Ongoing Activities

The report on safety was continued to a future meeting.

Executive Director/CEO Ford discussed the storm over the past weekend; the taxi reform proposal; and a pilot program to improve transit and pedestrian conditions on Market Street. 


Hansu Kim, SF Taxi Coalition, spoke about the taxi medallion reform proposal.  He applauded the Executive Director for holding meetings to discuss the different opinions.  The plan presented at the Policy and Governance Committee was offensive and opposed by stakeholders.  Taking income from medallion holders is sacrosanct and will be unanimously opposed.

Jim Gillespie, Yellow Cab stated that there was zero support for the medallion plan due to the negative impact on passengers, the city and cab drivers.  He expressed hope for a collaborative effort to solve issues with revenue, taxi service, opportunities for career cab drivers and taxi companies. 

Carl Macmurdo echoed comments made by previous speakers. He stated that the City could use the money from newly issued medallions as operational revenue.

Mike Spain stated that Prop K has been a difficult law and it is a hodgepodge of ideas.  The recent plan is a scheme to raise money for the City rather than a plan for the City.  Major American cities have found that selling permits to operators is efficient. The City wouldn’t be the regulator.  Bikes need to be licensed.

Peter Witt stated that he sees a real and determined effort to turn a really bad plan into a bad plan. We’re going backwards.  There are more cabs and cars per capita in San Francisco than in any other city in the U.S. 

Mary McGuire stated that the proposal wasn’t posted on the internet.  Cab drivers feel buried and that they don’t have an opportunity to be heard.  She had several questions about the proposal.

Barry Taranto stated that Market Street is a good idea but doesn’t know how it will be enforced.  The SFMTA should make sure that the police know that cab drivers are exempt from the prohibition.  He expressed hope that limousines won’t be exempt.  He also discussed the Taxi Medallion Reform proposal.

Norman Rolfe stated that the SFMTA is forcing autos off of Market Street but at the last meeting, the Board approved a traffic change that will encourage right-turns onto Market Street. The “Transit First” policy should be considered.  He urged reconsideration of the action taken at the Sept. 1 meeting. 

Victoria Lansdown stated that it’s unfortunate that the cab industry was folded into the SFMTA.  The cab industry is too vast and complex to be folded in with the Human Resources department.  This move is ill advised and should be reassessed.  Reform removes any chance for a taxi driver to achieve financial stability.

Barry Korengold, SF Cab Drivers Association, thanked the SFMTA for the dialogue on this matter.  He understands the plan is just a first step and he looks forward to discussing it.  Mr. Korengold encouraged more input from the taxi industry. 

Bill Mounsey stated that 90% of the cab industry is against the proposal.  You’ve got to have town hall meetings.  Taxi drivers need to have their own person with whom we can communicate.  People who drive taxis are the only people who understand the industry. The proposal is a complete counter representation of the cab industry. 

Ed Healy stated that past administrations would jam proposals down our throats.  He looks forward to the town hall meetings.

Mark Gruberg stated that they were promised that Prop K would be protected.  Any plan that violates that promise will result in no faith that future promises will be kept.  Faith and trust needs to be restored. He encouraged the Market Street experiment. 

Frank Fahy stated that there were taxi drivers in Roman times.  There is no reason to reinvent the wheel. The City gets enormous benefit from taxi fares.  The plan needs to be kept simple.  The City will be sorry if it adopts this plan.

Dan Hinds, National/Veterans Cab, stated that some reforms to Prop K could make the industry more effective.  Prop K reforms need to make it beneficial for people who choose to drive a cab as a career.  We need to take care of older drivers who may have a disability and we need to address service.

Patricia Vaughey stated that public meetings should be tape recorded.  The public doesn’t want to see another farce like the TEP where half of the neighborhoods weren’t included in meetings. 

8. Citizens’ Advisory Council Report

No report.

9.  Public Comment

James Musalski stated that the budget is balanced on the back of customers.  Instead, the SFMTA shoulc cut salaries.  All you do is raise fares and now you’re cutting service.  The Executive Director hasn’t done anything but dig deeper into debt.

Patricia Vaughey stated that certain groups in Cow Hollow weren’t part of the discussion regarding articulated buses on Union Street.  She has been denied access to studies and numbers.  She has questions about the 2 Clement studies.  She asked the Board under the freedom of information act to provide the studies.  The SFMTA is using the financial situation as an excuse. She requested a rehearing on the 41 Union proposal after the studies have been provided. 

Hansu Kim, SF Taxi Coalition, spoke against putting taxicabs under the Administration Division.  We agreed to fold with SFMTA to get professional management.  We are concerned that taxis will be buried. 

Peter Witt stated that as an abused victim of the Taxi Commission, he is experiencing distrust.  The Taxi Commission dropped the ball on various reports and wasted countless dollars on other useless reports. 

Barry Taranto stated that the Executive Director declined to take the bonus offered last year but didn’t cut back his salary.  He is bothered by the new organization plan.  There are a lot of issues to understand and now we have to educate Debra Johnson.  Illegal taxis are a major problem. 

Bill Mounsey stated that limousines are out of control.  The Board doesn’t know what the Taxi Detail is doing. Since the Taxi Commission folded, the taxi industry hasn’t had any representation. 

Roland Wong stated that the front doors at stations are not equipped with automatic openers.  People with disabilities have difficulty getting through the gates.  The Forest Hill Station is a landmark so automatic door openers won’t be added.  He recommends that the SFMTA install accessible doors.

Carl Macmurdo discussed the reorganization plan.  Taxi industry issues are complex.  The Chief of Staff will never learn the issues so unintentionally people will feed info to the titular head rather than the industry expert on staff.  The taxi director needs staff to help them clean up the list. 

Mary McGuire stated that on the SFMTA website, people can’t make advance payments on a credit card and the “extras” button has been disabled so you have to add bridge tolls or other charges to the tip.  Please work with Weights & Measures to get the system back on track and re-enable those functions.

Ed Healy expressed concern about the reorganization plan.  Taxis are the most important method of transportation for visitors.  Revisit the reorganization and see if you can accommodate us.

Barry Korengold expressed concern about the taxi industry being folded into the Administration Division.  Taxis deserve their own division.  Tourism is San Francisco’s biggest industry and taxicabs are an integral part of that.  The plan should be reconsidered. 

Mark Gruberg stated that there is no unanimity on the issue of folding taxis into the Administration Division.  Overseeing the industry is an administrative task but there are profound policy issues that must be addressed.  They need to have someone who has direct access to the Executive Director/CEO.  Service issues have been pushed aside in the discussion of Taxi Medallion Reform.  The reorganization should be rethought.

Frank Fahy stated that the SFMTA needs to think about the future of parking in San Francisco.   The City doesn’t regulate private buses.  It needs to regulate limousines.

BUS STOP (FLAG) – ESTABLISH 14th Avenue, east side, south of Clement Street (nearside)

RED ZONE – ESTABLISH 14th Avenue, east side, from Clement Street to 20 feet southerly

Clement Street, south side, from 14th Avenue to 20 feet easterly. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.)  (Bond Yee).


Patricia Vaughey stated that there haven’t been studies on the 2 Clement or 41 Union.  She has asked for numbers but hasn’t received any.  She is disturbed by how this has been handled.  There were serious things happening in the department.  The public was denied access.  This item should be tabled

Michael Sweet stated that the issues discussed two weeks ago remain of concern for synagogue members.  One of two proposals would take a bus up 15th Avenue.  There is a preschool on 15th Avenue so this would effect students. 

Joninna Simpson expressed concern about the safety of congregants.  This is the busiest time of year for the Jewish community so the lack of people at the meeting doesn’t indicate a lack of interest. She echoed comments made by Michael Sweet and stated that 15th Avenue is congested.

(Director Heinicke arrived)

Jeremy Pasternak stated that safety is a concern for Funston neighbors.  As of late July, SFMTA staff was saying that routing a bus down Clement was not a good idea so the route was bounced to Funston.  Other options haven’t gotten a full airing. 

Brian Doherty stated that elderly and disabled people live in the vicinity of the Funston stop.  They deal with multiple buses everyday.

Kathy Stirling asked if the Board had seen their block.   We have kept the green belt clean.  It is not acceptable to expect a small street to accommodate a large bus.

Paul Yieh expressed concern about the Funston option.   Live testing and quality of life issues have not been addressed.  Residents haven’t discussed other options with staff. 

Harry Loo stated that Muni buses are parked in front of his garage.  He’s against putting a terminal on the west side of Funston.  The SFMTA needs to consider the passengers safety.  It’s better to let them get off on Geary.  Park Presidio is a dangerous street to cross.  He urged the SFMTA to put the bus on 14th Avenue or Clement.

Keith Drissell stated that he shared Mr. Loo’s concern about passenger safety.  Cars generally back up on his street when they are trying to turn right.  This will increase congestion and make it difficult for buses to turn right. Residents who live there don’t like the noise or clutter.

Sue Jang stated that she had a hard time pulling out of her driveway when the bus was parked there.  The Muni driver had to help her.  Children and the elderly won’t be safe. 

Smith Jang stated that he is against installing a bus stop on Funston.  He has lived at 380 Funston for 46 years and was president of many associations in Chinatown. 

Wilson Jang stated that they already have difficulties on Funston.  Trucks driving on their street have scrapped their car.  His neighbor and sister in law were both hit by cars.  The area is already unsafe.

Patricia Stirling stated that neighbors feel that the process was flawed.  SFMTA staff initially stated that Funston Street wasn’t a good idea because of poor circulation of buses. 

Karen Hindin expressed concern regarding environmental impacts.  Environmental review wasn’t done because of the fiscal emergency. Please consider the increased noise and pollution, reverberation of buses, and the safety of children and the elderly.

Elizabeth Tippin stated that Park Presidio is one of the most dangerous streets.  Your own drivers say they don’t want to go to Geary.   There are other options.   Funston sidewalks are narrow and not ADA compliant.

Sally Gerstein stated that buses would bring a lot of traffic onto 14th Ave.  It’s always a challenge to turn right onto 14th Avenue.  It will be worse with a backup of buses.  Pedestrians are at risk.  It is a very difficult corner.

Eric Potashner stated that it’s important for emergency services to not be interrupted.   He urged the SFMTA to connect with the police and fire departments before proceeding

Chris McIntosh stated that there are children and elderly people who live on 14th Ave.

On motion to approve the Funston Ave. option:


NAYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, and Oka


The motion failed adoption.

The Board requested that staff further develop all feasible options, especially #2, #4 and #5, seek community input and return to the Board at the October 20 meeting.

Director Beach requested that staff provide the historic connectivity between the 2 Clement and 38 Geary lines.

12. Presentation and discussion of the plans for a new Transbay Terminal.  (Explanatory documents include a slide presentation.) (Ken McDonald)

Item 12 was removed from the agenda.

13. Presentation and discussion of FY09 4th Quarter and Year-End Service Standards Report.  (Explanatory documents include service standards.)  (Debra Johnson).
