Speak out for mobility, equity, and climate solutions on the Highway 101 corridor!

An ambitious project is under way by Caltrans, San Mateo City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG), and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority (SMCTA) to add an express lane (aka “managed lane”) on Highway 101 in San Mateo County. However, their own environmental impact report makes it clear that traffic on 101 will get dramatically worse, even if this project is implemented as planned. To learn more about this proposal and its effects, see our blog post.

The only thing that will truly improve mobility on the 101 corridor is a successful all-hands-on-deck effort to move far more people in fewer vehicles. The region must plan such an effort, which we call a “Mobility Action Plan” (MAP). A MAP would identify ways to provide people of all incomes with robust public transportation and tech-enabled shared mobility options, as well as incentives to make it more affordable and easy to use them. Learn more about the MAP here.

TransForm will send the following petition to Caltrans, C/CAG, SMCTA, and any other decision-makers who are making transportation decisions along the 101 corridor between San Francisco and Santa Clara Counties.

159 2.1 years ago Cindy A Abbott Pacifica, CA Traffic studies have shown many times that you can't build your way out of congestion. Alternatives are needed to avoid wasting money on a solution that doesn't change the initial problem.
158 2.1 years ago Emilio Balingit San Francisco, CA Look at what happened with the widening of I-405 in Los Angeles. $4.5 billion, 10 years of construction, and traffic through the Sepulveda pass is as slow as ever. Please explore solutions that prio...

151 2.1 years ago Kevin Wray San Carlos, CA Quality of life is one of the best facets of the Bay Area, and traffic really reduces it. We need smart solutions here, not band-aids. Thanks for pushing this!

146 2.1 years ago Lisa Ratner Menlo Park, CA We need to move more people, not more cars through this corridor. Dedicated bus lanes for one lane, then 3+ HOV, then 2+, then SOV.
