Metropolitan Transportation Commission Presentation
CSI East Bay-Oakland, in partnership with The American Society of Civil Engineers Golden Gate and San Jose, and Woman’s Transportation Seminar San Francisco Bay Area, presents a virtual program on the impact of COVID-19 on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s tolling program.
Thursday, March 25, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM PDT
This is an online zoom event
The presentation will focus on the impacts of the pandemic on the region’s tolling programs, both regional toll bridges and express lanes. We will discuss steps taken to respond to the impacts both in the very near-term, such as the accelerated transition to all electronic tolling, and over the mid- to long-term, such as multi-year asset management programs.
