Description

Please join Bay Planning Coalition for our next Resources & Infrastructure Committee meeting on August 20th from 10-11am at Environmental Science Associates (550 Kearny Street, Suite 800 San Francisco, CA) as we host the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) for a discussion about the opportunity to expand the region’s water transit system to serve a growing number of housing and employment centers around the Bay Area. Last year, Bay Area voters passed Regional Measure 3, a $4.5 billion plan to invest in transportation improvement projects around the region, and the expenditure plan includes a significant amount of funding to expand the regional ferry system. Ferries offer a comfortable and congestion-free alternative to gridlock on our highways and other transit systems, and they provide a unique opportunity to serve new waterfront developments around the region. WETA Executive Director Nina Rannells will join us to discuss the agency’s plans for the robust expansion of routes and frequency of service in the coming years, and members will engage in a discussion about the opportunity to expand to new locations around the bay.

Special thanks to ESA for hosting us.
