"Level of Service" Analysis: A Roadblock to Walkable Communities & Transportation Choices
Ironically, some environmental requirements can create real roadblocks for transit, bicycling, and transit-oriented development projects. Almost every roadway change, new development project, or neighborhood planning process uses a Level of Service (LOS) analysis to measure the performance of the transportation system for the convenience of cars. LOS completely ignores how places that create great access for peds/bikes and have good transit nearby actually make streets a lot better for cars, plus benefit all of us in many other ways!
Join guest speakers Jason Patton from the City of Oakland and Rachel Hiatt from San Francisco County Transportation Authority as they discuss the problems with LOS and propose alternative approaches.
The regional meeting will be held from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 19.
The event is free and open to the public. Dinner will be provided.
Please RSVP so we can have enough seating and food by sending an email to rsvp@TransFormCA.org.
Regional Meetings: A Great Way to Connect with the Issues and TransFormRegional meetings are a great way to learn more about transportation and land use issues, meet like-minded advocates, and hear from representatives of organizations working on similar issues. Regional meetings sometime have high profile speakers or several people presenting on a mix of Bay Area topics.
TransForm typically holds an orientation starting at 5:00pm before the regional meetings for those who are new to TransForm or the issues.
Feel free to contact Carli Paine to suggest a regional meeting topic/speaker or to inquire about the orientation.
