Tell MTC Commissioners to Support Higher Targets and Healthier Communities!
In response to state law (SB 375), every region in California will soon be assigned transportation-related greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets. On Wednesday, July 28, at 10 a.m. in Oakland, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) will approve GHG reduction targets for the Bay Area. MTC staff has recommended only a 10% reduction by 2035, which is too low to achieve truly healthy, vibrant neighborhoods and is lower than targets being recommended by other regions like San Diego and Sacramento. Bay Area citizens have long been proud of our environmental leadership, now is the time to step up and continue our crucial statewide role.
Send an email today to the MTC Commissioners urging them to support higher targets for the Bay Area for 2035!
Please take time to personalize your letter with a story about how walkable neighborhoods with transit options would make your life better.
