There’s a lot we can do to decrease congestion and improve commutes in the Bay Area without building expensive new roads and infrastructure. Toll lanes and other pricing strategies, carpooling and vanpools, trip caps, and employer-based programs can all make an impact. Come learn what’s already happening in the Bay Area, what’s working elsewhere, and what to watch and advocate for so commuting gets better in the future, not worse.
