      Subject: Transportation Planning/GIS Internships available

      The San Francisco County Transportation Authority is now recruiting for
      Transportation Planning and Transportation Planning/GIS (ArcView) interns.
      The Authority is a very progressive agency that administers local, state,
      and federal funds in San Francisco. In that role, the Authority tracks
      transportation system performance to ensure that San Francisco gets good
      value for its transportation investments and prepares a long-range
      Countywide Transportation Plan to guide San Francisco's future
      transportation investment decisions. Because of San Francisco's urban,
      multimodal character, our projects generally focus on bicycle, pedestrian,
      and transit travel. They also emphasize equity and have a strong
      community-involvement component. Please check our web site for more
      information about the agency at www.sfcta.org.

      Fall interns will have the opportunity to work on various projects, based on
      their interests and talents. These projects may include:

      � Countywide Transportation Plan will identify and prioritize projects for
      funding in the next 30 years, set policy, and develop a strategy for new
      revenue sources. This fall, an intern might help with finalizing existing
      conditions, assisting with graphics and materials for community outreach,
      participating in outreach events, helping to evaluate projects, developing
      alternatives, preparing newsletters, etc.

      � Market Street Study seeks out ways to improve Market Street for
      pedestrians, bicyclists and transit and involves significant public outreach
      and data collection and analysis.

      Various Strategic Analysis (SAR) Reports or policy papers such as:

      � 16th Street SAR considers the role of 16th Street in the transportation
      system given that the corridor has undergone significant changes in land use
      in recent years and is facing significant future changes given the
      uncertainly of future zoning regulations and impacts from the Mission Bay
      development. This SAR looks closely at the links between land use (existing
      and future) and the role of the 16th Street corridor.

      � Folsom Boulevard - Just requested, this SAR would look at the potential to
      convert Folsom, currently a one-way, freeway-like arterial to a boulevard.

      � Changing the CEQA metric from vehicle LOS to something else (e.g. person
      throughput) - This SAR would look at the legal and legislative constraints
      of using other metrics for CEQA analysis beyond the traditional vehicle LOS.
      It would also consider policy implications and tradeoffs and potentially
      provide recommendations for new metrics.

      � Caltrain Oakdale Station Relocation Study will examine the potential
      benefits of relocation of the little-used Paul Ave Caltrain Station to
      Oakdale just south of the community center. This study has a strong
      environmental justice emphasis.

      Interns should have completed one year in a relevant discipline (e.g.
      transportation planning) or be enrolled in a relevant discipline and have
      one year of relevant experience. Interns should be available to work at
      least 16 hours per week during regular business hours (fulltime is also
      possible) at our office near the Civic Center BART/Muni Metro station.
      Compensation is $16/hour.

      To Apply or For More Information:

      Please feel free to contact Lilia Scott, Transportation Planner-GIS, with
      any questions (email: Lilia_Scott@...; phone: 415-522-4813).
      Interested persons should send a cover letter and resume via email or fax:
      415-522-4829.
