Transportation megaprojects cost too much and take too long, frequently surpassing their original budgets and deadlines and falling short of their expected benefits. Moving faster through these projects requires the confidence to plough ahead even with uncertain and partial information, but the only way to do that while ensuring public interest goals are met is with a strong policy foundation and rigorous oversight every step of the way. To address this, Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is creating a regional 'Megaproject Advancement Policy' (MAP) to identify and monitor cost and delivery risks while improving passenger experience. Join us to discuss the challenges the Bay Area's transportation projects face, what the MAP actually does and how to situate it in the context of other plans and policies.
