Transpo Cash On The Table

The Transportation and Land Use Coalition ("TALC") has recently come out with its 2009 Regional Transportation Plan Platform. The document's publication was timed precisely to influence the Metropolitan Transportation Commission ("MTC") during its 18-month exploration of how to spend $100 billion-plus to shape the Bay Area 's future transportation infrastructure. Did you know that transportation accounts for half of the Bay Area's greenhouse gas emissions? Accordingly, one light bulb at a time, one project at a time efforts are admirable. But 100+ organizations that team for research and advocacy of a green, sustainable solution on such a large scale is smart— and potentially much more effective. Ball's in your court, MTC.
