San Francisco government employees and civil servants are responsible for the functioning of both the city and the county. From the environment to emergency relief, education, law enforcement, or health, communities rely on their elected representatives in maintaining and improving all public services.
Government duties often take groups of government office employees “into the field.” They negotiate cross-department projects, discuss proposals, speak at conferences, perform audits and inspections, and regularly meet the communities they serve. For those groups, charter buses are the most financially efficient, sustainable, and safe mode of travel.

The government of California is defined by the California Constitution. It comprises three branches: the executive, consisting of the Governor of California and elected officers; the legislative, consisting of the Assembly and the Senate; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court of California.
The State government has many departments responsible for various aspects of the State’s life. They all are organized under Cabinet-level agencies – superagencies – under the leadership of the Governor. There are eight major Cabinet-level agencies (superagencies) such as the Government Operations Agency (CalGovOps), California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS), California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA), and California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA).
The Local Government is a variety of political districts, government entities, and offices. They operate independently on the constitutional, charter, or common law basis. There are 58 counties, 482 cities, over a thousand school districts, and approximately 3,400 special districts.
The government of the County and the City of San Francisco is the only consolidated city-county one in California and one of the 13 Charter counties. San Francisco uses the “strong mayor” form of mayor/council system, with the Mayor, Board of Supervisors, and elected officers representing the administration. They are chosen via ranked-choice voting.
The Mayor of San Francisco leads the executive branch of the city and county government.
The mayor has the responsibility to enforce all city laws, to set policies, and to coordinate city departments. The Legislative branch is led by the Board of Supervisors. They act both as the county’s Board of Supervisors and the City Council. There are 11 members of the Board, representing the city districts, and led by a President. Their primary responsibility is to pass laws and budgets.
There are also a number of agencies and departments under the authority of each branch of the government. For example, the Budget and Legislative Analyst office are under the jurisdiction of the Board of Supervisors; Adult Probation Commission – under the County Superior Court; and Department of Emergency Management, Animal Care and Control, and Residential Rent Board Entities under the authority of the City Administrator. Some of the entities, such as the Office of Citizen Complaints or Small Business Commission, act as semi-independent.
