Bay Area Open Houses Scheduled for Plan Bay Area 2040 Regional Transportation and Housing Plan

Who: Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) &
Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG)

What: A series of public open houses for Bay Area residents to learn about an update to the region's long-range transportation and housing roadmap known as Plan Bay Area 2040. Planners have prepared several alternative scenarios for what the Bay Area could look like in 2040, and are seeking the public's help in selecting desired features among these alternatives, and in prioritizing transportation investments.

Open house participants will rotate among a series of stations where they will have a chance to view displays and offer comments on long-term goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars and light-duty trucks, house the region's projected population, improve public health, maintain the region's transportation infrastructure, and preserve open space, among others. Displays also will feature the schedule and key milestones for the plan update. For more information, visit or call 510/817-5757; starting May 23rd, please call 415/778-6757.
