As the Bay Area runs up against physical and political limitations on its ability to accommodate new growth, the Northern California Megaregion has become a critical geography for coordinated economic, transportation, and human capital development and planning. Learn about a new study that examines the connectedness of this megaregion, highlighted by the over 140,000 commuters that cross the boundaries of the Bay Area, Sacramento area, and Northern San Joaquin Valley each day.
