On Wednesday Feb 12, 2020, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s Bay Area Toll Authority Oversight Committee will review studies exploring options to speed transbay transit trips. The conclusion of their assessment is that delays are longer on the approaches, so the first step should be to speed up the approaches, and consider bay bridge bus lanes later.

Bay Bridge for Everyone enthusiastically supports proposals to improve approaches, and also wants to see short-term progress on bus lanes. While the delays on the approaches are longer, the delays on the bridge affect every bus commuter, and the unreliability of the bridge crossing affects every commuter.

Do you want to see Bay Bridge Bus Lanes and approach improvements ASAP? Sign this petition now, and come if you can on Wednesday to Bay Area Metro Center (375 Beale Street San Francisco, CA 94105) at 9:30am.
