Optimizing Our Highways: Moving more people with fewer cars

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 our 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?

Topics/speakers:

  • Stuart Cohen and Chris Lepe, Executive Director and Senior Community Planner at TransForm, will outline how a 101 Mobility Action Plan (MAP) can achieve stronger equity and environmental outcomes while improving mobility.
  • Jeff Tumlin, Principal and Director of Strategy at Nelson\Nygaard, will discuss how to best implement managed/express lanes.
  • We'll also create ways for the audience to get your ideas into the mix.
