Healthier Communities Through Smarter Parking Policies (Webinar)
Be a part of improving health and transportation in the Bay Area by joining this monthly webinar series. The Bay Area Health in Transportation Collaborative is a joint effort of TransForm and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership.
On October 16, we’ll hear from Ann Cheng of TransForm, who will introduce GreenTRIP, TransForm’s low traffic development certification, awarding housing projects with excellent traffic reduction and innovate parking strategies. To date the program has certified 15 projects around the Bay Area. In just the first five projects developers committed to $7 million in guaranteed transit pass revenues equivalent to 80,000 years of transit passes instead of providing more parking than necessary in transit rich, walkable neighborhoods. Instead of wasting resources on unused car parking spaces, increasingly communities are realizing they can encourage and even require new development to provide healthy and more economical transportation options.
