Regional Transportation Plan workshops

May 6, 2008 at 7:19 pm 4 comments

I encourage everyone to attend any of those workshops and express your support for Caltrain improvements:

Santa Clara County
Thursday, May 8, 2008
6-8 pm
Martin Luther King Library, Rooms 225-229, 150 East San Fernando Street, San Jose

San Mateo County
Tuesday, May 13, 2008
6-8 pm
San Mateo County Government Center, Board of Supervisors Chambers, 400 County Center, Redwood City

San Francisco County
Thursday, May 22, 2008
6-8 pm
San Francisco State Downtown Campus, Rooms E673-674, 835 Market Street, San Francisco

I only listed the meetings near the Caltrain corridor. Click here for dates and locations of all RTP meetings in the Bay Area.

Law requires the Metropolitian Transportation Commission to develop a Regional Transportation Plan for the Bay Area every few years. MTC is an agency that funnels state and federal funding to counties, cities, and transit agencies like Caltrain.

If you’re new to transit advocacy, attending one of these meetings is a good start. The RTP process itself is political and technical. There’s a learning curve, but MTC generally takes an effort the educate the general public about the process.

    Andy: great to see your blog. I’ve bookmarked it.

    Is the Transit Unlimited link the new wiki?

    Transit Unlimited is the new wiki that I am working on.

    Looking for assistance? We could look into integrating those transit line maps I’ve had in progress too, as you suggested a couple months ago.

    I think there are opportunities. The wiki can show Google Maps.
