'FASTER' Bay Area
SPUR Business Breakfast Series
8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. | Wednesday, December 4, 2019
The Bay Area’s transportation system was ahead of its time when it was first built, but regional improvements have not kept pace with increased rider demand over the past 50 years. With 27 different operators across 9 counties, our system has become fragmented and confusing, and leaves driving as the only option for many commuters - leading to congested roads and lives dominated by traffic. The need for a regional, seamless transit network is greater than ever.
FASTER Bay Area is a proposed November 2020 ballot measure led SPUR, the Bay Area Council, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group and key equity, environmental and community allies, with the intention of raising up to $100 billion over 40 years for transportation projects in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The measure will enable massive investments in regional rail and express bus, along with key policy changes to ensure that this transformed network connects seamlessly, is affordable to our most vulnerable riders, and can be delivered quickly and inexpensively.
Join SPUR’s director of policy, Nicholas Josefowitz to hear how the initiative is progressing and have your say on how the measure should be developed. This event is for SPUR business members. Please RSVP here to reserve your seat.
