Regions with world-class, integrated transit systems with growing ridership have significant lessons to offer the Bay Area. This is particularly timely as the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC) Blue Ribbon Transit Recovery Task Force is currently considering governance reforms that may be necessary to deliver more transit with fewer resources. Come learn about systems of regional transit governance from international leaders such as Canada, Australia and Europe and hear how these models could be applied here in the Bay Area.
