Nov 6: Getting Downtowns Moving with Convenient and Sustainable Access

Many downtowns in the Bay Area are facing this challenge: Customers and workers, residents and visitors all need to be able to get downtown, and parking can be a barrier. In this session, experts will discuss a variety of strategies to improve downtown access that also help reduce congestion and improve the environment, including:

  • Managing parking
  • Providing transit access for low-income workers and small businesses
  • Improving access for cycling, walking, and micro-mobility
  • Building affordable homes downtown
