The Transportation Authority is the designated TFCA Program Manager for San Francisco. In that capacity, it programs approximately $800,000 every year to bicycle, pedestrian and other transportation projects that help clean up the air by reducing motor vehicle emissions. The Transportation Authority also provides assistance to project sponsors in applying regional TFCA funds, programmed directly by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

TFCA funds come from a $4 per vehicle surcharge collected by the Department of Motor Vehicles on motor vehicle registrations in the nine-county Bay Area region and are distributed by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District).
