The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (Transportation Authority) hosted a public workshop to discuss a potential new regional transportation revenue measure that could help fund major regional and local projects across the Bay Area. The workshop included presentations from two groups focused on shaping a regional funding measure:
- FASTER Bay Area, a coalition led by the Bay Area Council, Silicon Valley Leadership Group and SPUR. FASTER Bay Area is creating a plan to make the Bay Area’s transportation system seamless, faster, reliable and predictable. They are proposing a measure that would raise an estimated $100 billion over a 40-year period. For more information please contact info@FASTERBayArea.org, or fill out the survey to provide feedback.
- Voices for Public Transportation is an alliance that includes organized labor, community based organizations, and advocates including San Francisco Transit Riders, Urban Habitat, Public Advocates, and TransForm. For two years they have been working with Bay Area residents to develop a vision for a regional funding measure that is values based, focused on outcomes like expanding freedom of movement, creating good-paying green jobs, and reducing car trips and carbon emissions through a regional transportation funding measure that can win in November 2020. For more information or to provide feedback, please contact Bob Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Thea Selby at email@example.com.
