I guess transit agencies need to be invested in whether or not drivers are driving for TNCs because drivers have a limit on the number of hours they can work driving.

I don't think a gift is something you can ask for back.

4-3-18 MTAB Item 11 SFMTA Strategic Plan

Operating Budget Book PDF
4-3-18 MTAB Item 13 FY19-FY20 Operating Budget
SFMTA operating budget book - I can't believe that it is going to be a 1.2B operation for 800-1M people. Thats insane. LA MTA which is the authority for the whole of Los Angeles county is 1.6B for 10 million people. I don't know whether to be impressed that SFMTA can get that much from so few people(most of the new money is from development fees) or is LA underfunded.

Fiscal Year 2018/2019 and 2020 Budget Outlook
2018-04-05 Budget presentation
Budget breakdown for Caltrain. They're a really lean transporting machine. I can't believe they do all they do with 270M revenue. If they had a tax income like BART or SFMTA it'd be interesting to see what they could be. I know its easiest for them being on a single path rail route but still its impressive
quick look at what they're doing to get the EMUs. lots of legislature support.

This is interesting. a non-binding bill to try to convince TNCs to go green over the years. hmm... I just don't see why they would.
18-0184 3b SB 957 CAV Oppose.pdf
Senate Bill 957 (Lara): High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lanes- Clean Air Vehicle Access for Low-Income Registered...
An oppose from MTC for SB 957. it basically undermines HOVs and if we keep saying every SOV gets to access the HOV lanes whats the point of the HOV lanes? If they want to make another special people's lane for rich and clean drivers then they should do that(which is essentially the toll lanes)
