Transportation Review Fee: SFMTA collects a fee separately for costs related to the review of development projects – the Planning Department informs applicants during the Project Application review process if they must pay these fees.


Applicants may also wish to review some of the information available under the Permit Center for more resources relating to projects and procedures.
