A people-first Market Street is coming to San Francisco. With the recently approved plan to ban cars from much of the downtown artery, the city joins heavyweights like New York, Paris, and Barcelona in opening up more street space for pedestrians, bikes, and public transit and reimagining its streets as safer, greener, and more efficient.

Join CityLab and SPUR in conversation with Oakland transportation leaders to discuss what the future of streets could look like in Oakland and the greater Bay Area. How are people moving now, and how might that change if the streets are free of cars? What challenges lie ahead, and what opportunities?

The event starts at 6 p.m. at SPUR’s Oakland office. Our programming will start at 6:30 p.m. CityLab's Laura Bliss and Sarah Holder will host a night of conversation, featuring a panel discussion with:

  • Warren Logan, Policy Director of Mobility and Inter Agency Relations for the Oakland Mayor’s Office
  • Benjamin Grant, SPUR’s Urban Design Policy Director
  • A representative from Oakland’s Cycles of Change

Come meet your fellow urban enthusiasts and your favorite urban thinkers, and don’t forget to bring your questions! We want to know what safe streets look like to you, and how you’d move through a city if there were fewer cars on the road. Invite your friends on Facebook here!
