Bay Area Transportation 2050: Systems change in action

Lecture | October 6 | 4 p.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building


Ratna Amin, San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Association (SPUR)

Institute of Transportation Studies


Regional transportation planning is an art and not a science. SPUR, the Bay Area’s leading urban planning organization, has embarked on a Regional Strategy to answer the big planning questions facing the Bay Area through 2050. While transportation models and heuristics are commonly used to estimate future mobility needs, urban systems in the United States are actually shaped by a complex interaction of urban planning, public policy, and politics -- which are overlaid on history and our own narratives. SPUR’s future transportation research process will test the limits of what can be known through typical planning tools and what must be determined through strategic visioning and social movements. This talk will discuss SPUR’s ambitious Regional Strategy project, theory of change, and transportation research and visioning process.
