The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) plans, funds, and implements transportation projects across the county that improve travel options for the residents, commuters, and visitors. In 2019 the SFCTA celebrated its 30th anniversary and asked Convey to highlight 30 people whose lives have been positively impacted by the agency’s projects.
Rather than taking a project-specific approach, we took a human-centered approach and connected with the real people whose lives improved in some way as a result of the SFCTA’s work. From innovative art installations to safer bike lanes and improved bus routes, it was exciting to hear about the ways in which community members benefitted from the SFCTA’s work!
We interviewed and photographed 30 artists, activists, commuters, patrons, business owners, MUNI operators, and lots of folks in between. We heard the story of the non-profit that restores iconic San Francisco cable cars. We talked with the artist who was commissioned to create sculptural seating elements for the Broadway Streetscape Project. We met senior citizens and staff from their social services team who were thrilled when more frequent buses headed up and down Geary Boulevard. From stories around new bike share programs to sidewalk improvements, it was touching to hear how lives have been impacted by the SFCTA and to feel so connected to the people in that community.
Sharing stories about real people throughout the Bay Area is a memorable way to connect people from different communities.
Authentic photographs captured the personalities behind the stories.
