As the pandemic is beginning to lift, Bay Area residents have begun returning to work and traveling more frequently in general, traffic congestion is returning with them — and in some cases it is even worse than before the pandemic. Putting more people in fewer vehicles is one solution to this gridlock, but we need to prioritize buses and other transit to more effectively cut through traffic. Without a regionally-coordinated plan, how can the Bay Area better support transit on busy roadways when their routes may cross the jurisdictions of multiple cities and more than a dozen different approval agencies? Hear from a panel of transportation experts about what it will take to coordinate successfully and accelerate transit priority throughout our region.
