Keeping the Bay Area Moving

The transportation program ensures that Bay Area policies support a regionally competitive business climate, maintain efficient transportation and goods movement systems, and ensure a high quality of life for its workers. The Bay Area Council has long recognized that transportation and land use policies are two sides of the same coin, with planning and advocacy work focused on promoting smart, connected urban infill while reducing greenhouse gas impacts on the region. Dating back to the 1950’s, with the creation of the Bay Area Rapid Transit District, and subsequently the BART transit system, the Council has solved the region’s most vexing transportation challenges.
