Fast-Tracking Buses on the Bay Area's Highways
12:30 p.m. | Thursday, October 29, 2020
One in a series of events on the SPUR Regional Strategy.
The Bay Area’s freeways often crawl with automobile traffic. This traffic even affects transit riders, as one of the most space-efficient transportation modes–the bus–currently fares no better on highways than the cars around it. This doesn’t have to be the norm. A number of U.S. regions are now leveraging their expansive freeway infrastructure to deliver fast and reliable regional transit. Express buses are running in freeway express lanes with median stations and direct access connections, allowing for consistent, unimpeded travel. Come learn about how the cities of San Diego, Los Angeles and Seattle are expediting their regional express bus networks, and hear about plans to do the same here in the Bay Area.
