The Transportation Committee examines transportation systems emphasizing increased use of public transportation services and other viable alternatives to reduce vehicle miles traveled. We try to monitor transportation systems and issues so that they reflect the regional needs.
We provide action when needed to reflect national, state and regional League positions on transportation that emphasize safe, secure means of travel, serves all residents, honors the environment, integrates with land use policy and is cost effective.

Issue papers are intended to explore areas that are still somewhat controversial among Bay Area Leagues and murky in regional decision making processes. The perspectives are NOT an attempt to portray a League consensus or to state League positions. Posting on the League Website with the opportunity for continuing discussion may open new paths in the difficult terrain of regional decision making.
