 SFMTA, the agency in charge of San Francisco’s public transit, traffic, parking and streets, has changed a lot over the past century. Its real estate has evolved along with the agency and today includes bus and train yards, a cable car barn, warehouses and repair shops, offices, 40 parking lots and places to store towed cars.
