Imagining More People-First Streets
6:00 p.m. | Monday, November 18, 2019
A people-first Market Street is coming to San Francisco. With the recently approved plan to ban cars from much of the downtown artery, the city joins heavyweights like New York, Paris, and Barcelona in opening up more street space for pedestrians, bikes, and public transit and reimagining its streets as safer, greener, and more efficient. But what about the East Bay? Could something similar happen in Oakland? Join CityLab and SPUR in conversation with Oakland transportation leaders to discuss what the future of streets could look like in that city, as well as across the greater Bay Area. How are people moving now, and how might that change if the streets are free of cars? What challenges and what opportunities lie ahead?
Join us for a reception at 6 p.m. before the conversation begins at 6:30 p.m. Co-presented by CityLab.
