Whether you’re driving alone or in a carpool or riding a bus, you’ve probably noticed that the Bay Area’s freeways are just too congested. Yet widening roads isn’t sustainable, environmentally or financially. That’s why the Bay Area is now exploring a user fee for driving on congested freeways, especially in corridors with good public transportation. But can we price roads in a way that advances social and racial equity? How can pricing efforts protect people displaced to areas with few transit choices? Could transit improvements be put in before tolls begin? In this Digital Discourse, hear how the Next Generation Freeway Study is answering these and other critical questions.
