He also authored the 2007 revenue measure intended to ensure SFMTA has a long-term funding source for its Transit Effectiveness Project, one of many initiatives he has championed to prioritize investment in public transit.

He currently serves as Chair of the Land Use and Transportation Committee and member of the Government Audit & Oversight Committee for the Board of Supervisors. In his capacity as a County Transportation Authority Commissioner, Aaron Peskin serves as the Chair of the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) Board. He also serves on the SFCTA’s Vision Zero and Treasure Island Mobility Management Agency (TIMMA) Committees.
