How Do We Get There? Accessible and Affordable Public Transportation for All
Tuesday, March 28, 2:00 - 3:30 pm, Hybrid
A robust public transportation system is key to social and economic mobility for San Mateo County residents, as well as to carbon emissions reduction. However, public transit across the Bay Area remains inaccessible and unaffordable for many residents. How can we reimagine and advocate for transit systems that reduce socioeconomic and geographic barriers for our communities? What steps must we take to get there?
Join us on Tuesday, March 28, at the Burlingame Community Center (directly across from the Caltrain station) to learn about opportunities to advocate for policies and programs toward improving accessibility and affordability in public transportation. We will hear from community members on their experiences using public transit, followed by David Canepa, San Mateo County Supervisor District 5 as well as Laura Tolkoff, Transportation Policy Director, SPUR, and Adina Levin, Advocacy Director, Seamless Bay Area, followed by a group discussion about paths forward.
Note: This event is free to attend, but registration is required. Light refreshments will be provided during the group discussion.
