Planning Transit-Only Lanes in Oakland

Lunchtime Forum

We’re improving the SPUR event registration process.
SPUR has launched a new ticketing system and we're asking you to register for each event that you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes that may occur and enable us to better tailor our programming to your interests.


In cities around the country, buses slog through traffic in the same lanes that are shared by cars and other vehicles. The resulting transit systems can be slow, unreliable and, most of all, inefficient. The obvious idea, then, is to give buses their own lane. But what happens when cities do that? Join us to talk about the strategies, plans and challenges faced by transit-only lanes in Oakland.
