Event Details

The economic boom in the area is bringing traffic jams, parking challenges, and fears of worsening problems. Meanwhile, a trend toward cities taking charge of traffic and parking in the Silicon Valley area is picking up speed.

Sunnyvale has been an early leader with the Moffett Park Business and Transportation Association coordinating among participants to reduce vehicle trips in the area.  San Jose is moving toward creating a Transportation Management Association (TMA) for the Downtown/Diridon area to reduce vehicle trips. Mountain View is getting its TMA under way for the North Bayshore and Whisman areas and Palo Alto is moving forward with plans for the downtown and California Avenue areas to reduce trips and parking demand.  TransForm is coming out with rich new data showing the effectiveness of transit oriented development practices at reducing parking demand, implemented by developers including First Community Housing and many others. 

The panel includes those with expertise about how cities, employers, and residential developments are addressing traffic and parking issues.
