Join our community of riders and advocates working for the public transit San Francisco needs.

A broad and growing membership means more clout at City Hall. It means a strong constituency that cares about affordable, efficient, accessible, and easy-to-use transit. It means your voice, and the voice of transit riders across the city, can be heard.

Our work is more important than ever. We face enormous challenges in the coming days, months, and years in the fight for better service as we recover from the pandemic.

Become a member today – or renew your membership! We have a series of fun and informative events to celebrate and strengthen our membership. Your membership now enters you in a raffle for a Central Subway tour. Join us!

Our Impact

You Too Can Build the Movement!

Everyone can help grow our movement this April by asking people in your network to join San Francisco Transit Riders!

Tell your friends how important it is for a city like San Francisco to have excellent, easy-to-use public transit. Tell them why good public transit is important to you! Let them know the only way to make a difference is to organize and advocate for it – we’ve proven that with all we’ve achieved so far. And of course, remind them that donations are doubled this month, and they could win a spot on our Central Subway tour!

For every new member you bring on board, you get another chance to win a spot on the central subway tour! (Simply have them put your name in the referral field when they sign up.)
