Given the changing public health guidance in the Bay Area, which includes recommendations from both Santa Clara and San Francisco Counties, SPUR is suspending its in-person public programming events. During this time, public programs will be postponed, canceled or converted into a webinar on an event-by-event basis. To ensure that you’re able to have the experience as originally intended, we’ve chosen to postpone this event and are working to find a new date. To receive updates, please register below or check back here soon.
Congestion pricing has worked in cities like London, Stockholm and Singapore. Now San Francisco is exploring how such a policy could get traffic moving and achieve goals around street safety, clean air and equity. Could congestion pricing be the key to a faster bus ride? A smoother drive downtown? More reliable deliveries? A safer bike trip? Most importantly, could it help create a more equitable transportation system? Come explore the trade-offs in congestion pricing, how it might affect your commute and how it can serve as a model for other cities.
