$11 Million from feds for anti-congestion projects

In mid-October, Mayor Ed Lee welcomed an award of $11 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation to help the city try to deal with traffic congestion.

The funding will support six initiatives of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and the San Francisco County Transportation Authority. The projects create high-occupancy vehicle lanes for public transit and carpools, set aside streetside space for carpool and ridesharing drop-offs and pick-ups, change traffic signals to try to reduce congestion and increase safety, an electronic toll system for Treasure Island, and testing electronic autonomous shuttles on Treasure Island.
