      RSVP now for March 18 regional meeting on road pricing

      Registration for May 16 Annual Summit now open � get the early bird special!
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      TransForm's March 18 regional meeting tackles road pricing � RSVP now to rsvp@...
      Road pricing is on its way to the Bay Area. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission has proposed a network of high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, which would allow non-carpool users to pay to use carpool lanes.
      HOT lanes have the potential to move more people on our existing highways, improve public transportation, and fight climate change. But if the Bay Area's HOT network is designed poorly, it could put an unfair cost burden on low-income commuters and lead to unwise highway expansions.
      Learn more about the proposal for a regional HOT network, hear from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) about their proposal for HOT lanes in the South Bay, and kick off TransForm's efforts to shape road pricing in the Bay Area.
      The Wednesday, March 18 regional meeting will be held from 5:30pm � 7:30pm in the Sierra Club's 3rd floor conference room at 85 2nd St., San Francisco (Montgomery St. BART/MUNI station).
      Regional meetings are a great way to learn about current transportation and land use issues, meet advocates from across the region, and hear from organizations working on similar issues. TransForm holds an orientation starting at 5:00pm before the regional meetings for those who are new to TransForm or the issues.� Regional meetings are free and open to all � spread the word!
      RSVP for the regional meeting so we have enough seating and food by emailing rsvp@... or by calling Ebonie at 510-740-3150.
      Learn more about HOT lanes.
