First Meeting this Wed: Bay Area Regional Network

Please join us for the kick off meeting of the Bay Area Regional Network, Wednesday, February 15 from 9am – 10am.

Join us as the Safe Routes to School National Partnership and TransForm jumpstart a new collaboration of advocates, community members, health professionals, and planning experts from across the Bay Area. The primary goal is to ensure transportation policy is infused with a concern for the health and well-being of all the Bay Area’s communities.

This first meeting will include a discussion of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s $250 million OneBayArea grant, and give easy tools for people concerned about public health, equity, and the environment to make a difference in future Bay Area expenditures on transportation, including a new report from TransForm on ways to make gains in health through transportation.
