After two years of public discussion and technical work, the Draft Plan Bay Area 2040 is an updated long-range Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. This document discusses how the Bay Area will grow over the next two decades and identifies transportation and land-use strategies to enable a more sustainable, equitable and economically vibrant future.</p> <p>The effort grew out of the California Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act of 2008 (California Senate Bill 375, Steinberg), which requires each of the state’s 18 metropolitan areas – including the Bay Area – to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars and light trucks. Plan Bay Area 2040 is a limited and focused update of the region’s previous integrated transportation and land use plan, Plan Bay Area, adopted in 2013. View the draft Plan Bay Area 2040 at <a href="http://www.2040.planbayarea.org">2040.planbayarea.org</a></p> <p>MTC and ABAG have scheduled open houses in each of the nine Bay Area counties for comment on the Draft Plan Bay Area 2040. Residents are encouraged to attend a workshop where they can view displays, ask questions and offer comments on these documents.
