The Bay Area’s regional transportation agency estimates that by 2035 about two million more people will be living, working, and commuting in our nine counties, over the current population of about seven million. With this kind of growth projected, measures must be in place to shape the future in economical, equitable, and eco-efficient ways. Listen in as we discuss transit-oriented development as a means to ensure that Bay Area communities can become more prosperous as they grow more populous with Gilda Gonzales, CEO of the Unity Council in the Fruitvale District of Oakland, Karen Chapple, Professor of City & Regional Planning at UC Berkeley, and Amanda Bornstein of the Greenbelt Alliance in the North Bay.
