Getting commuters out of cars
SPUR has long argued for greater attention to the importance of the location of work in the smart-growth agenda. With nearly seven in ten commuters still driving alone to work in the Bay Area, getting more jobs near transit and more commuters out of their cars remain important goals. A recent SPUR paper explores what it would take to get half of commuters to work without driving alone. The paper identifies actions at the local, regional and state levels. With Egon Terplan from SPUR, Jed Kolko from the Public Policy Institute of California and Mark Shorett from Arup.
