Participating officials will tweet while riding, walking to, or waiting for transit every day for those 22 days, posting it to Twitter with an optional photo using the hashtag #OnBoardSF. If they don't take transit for one of those days, they will tweet their reason why with the same hashtag.
The challenge runs from Monday, June 1st to Monday, June 22nd, one day for each of the years since 1993 when San Francisco voters passed Proposition AA: "City officials and full-time employees [shall] travel to and from work on public transit at least twice a week." 22 years later, this policy agreement has never been acted on, and now is a chance to make up for lost time!
When they regularly ride public transit, city officials better understand the rider's daily experience and prioritize funding and planning a more reliable, robust, and visionary transit system to support it. This is an opportunity for our city officials to promote their own commitment to public transportation, showcasing that they care about the future of Muni.
We want to partner with organizations across the Bay Area to support our city officials in riding public transportation! If your organization or corporation would like to act as a partner or sponsor, or for more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
