Optimizing Our Highways: Moving more people with fewer cars - Burlingame, CA
An express lane is now being considered on 101 from San Francisco to San Jose, but projections show that it alone will do little to solve Bay Area traffic woes. It is increasingly clear that the only way to get to the root of congestion — and to reduce climate emissions — is by catalyzing a dramatic shift from solo driving to carpools, shuttles, transit and incentivizing a shift to clean vehicles. Can we make Silicon Valley the place to break out with truly disruptive ideas that work?
Proudly co-sponsored by the Mineta Transportation Institute.

Beyond Commuter Rail: International models of rail excellence - Mountain View, CA
Alon Levy, writer and analyst about transit systems around the world, visited the United States to present international examples of effective rail and transit systems, and a critique of the practices that hold the U.S. back from excellent service.
As Caltrain prepares a business plan for the era of electric service, the event addressed what the U.S. could learn about the transformation of commuter rail around the world. As well as, what the Bay Area could learn about pulling together seamlessly integrated transit systems in complex regions?
