The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has released a new citywide project map, reports Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez.

This new interactive map can parse projects by category, such as Vision Zero pedestrian safety projects, improvements to bus and light rail lines, parking changes, street redesigns and new bike projects. The SFMTA is currently working on 64 projects that affect bicyclists, from redesigning current bike lanes to be safer to creating brand new bike lanes in The City, according to the new interactive map. A few clicks also reveal the SFMTA is working on 68 Muni-related projects, from new street design changes to make the 14-Rapid speedier to bus stop changes along the 19-Polk route.

According to a source quoted in the article, the city previously used a Google map with a few projects layered on top, but it lacked all the functionality described above.
