Map Help

The San Francisco Planning Department’s Transportation Information Map is based on the award winning Property Information Map and provides a single access point for a variety of useful transportation information. This search tool addresses the growing complexity of the transportation network that serves and is impacted by projects in San Francisco, and the need to easily and comprehensively analyze that network. Our hope is that this tool will enable transportation planners and the public to better understand and communicate about the transportation context of various development projects.

Among the topics this tool provides information about:

  • Local and regional transit
  • Pedestrian, cyclist, and vehicle safety
  • Existing and planned transportation infrastructure
  • The City's Better Streets Plan
  • The City's Vision Zero Policy
