      Clean Air Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Specialty

      Date Issued: May 4, 2012

      Filing Deadline: 5 p.m. Friday May 25th, 2012

      Salary: Annually $53,118 - $64,558

      The mission of the City and County of San Francisco Department of the
      Environment (SF Environment) is to promote innovative policies and
      programs to protect the urban and natural environment, promote social
      equity and expand the green economy. SF Environment programs include
      Zero Waste/Recycling, Climate, Green Building, Energy Efficiency and
      Renewables, Toxics Reduction, Environmental Justice, Urban
      Agriculture, Clean Transportation, Urban Forest, and Public
      Information Programs.

      SFE’s Clean Transportation Program engages in projects to encourage
      shift to transportation modes that use energy more efficiently, rely
      on sources of energy that are renewable or have low carbon intensity
      and decrease single occupancy vehicle trips. In part, this requires a
      technology focus, aggressively incorporating electric vehicles and
      other clean vehicle technologies and fuels, as encompassed by the
      Clean Vehicle section. It also requires a focus on behavioral changes,
      encouraging shifts in the modes of transportation that people choose.
      The Transportation Demand Management (TDM) section focuses on shifting
      routine trips from single occupancy vehicles to much greater use of
      transit, ridesharing, biking, walking and telecommuting. The travel
      choices provided save users money, reduce vehicle miles traveled and
      encourage adoption of varied commute modes. This position is in the
