Dear City Council Members, Commissioners, and Staff,
Please find information below about the Connecting Communities workshop series<http://www.transformca.org/ConnectingCommunities>, featuring several Menlo Park Commissioners and some of the best experts on mobility, housing, and the environment.

Tonight, we’re pleased to co-sponsor with SAMCEDA, Friends of Caltrain, and Transform, Dr. Dan Sperling of UC Davis ITS, and California Air Resources Board Member to discuss his new book on the Three Revolutions of Transportation (Autonomous, Shared, and Electric). It will be followed by additional workshops over the next month:

Three Revolutions: Planning for an electric, autonomous, shared transportation future

April 19, 6:30PM - 8:00PM
SamTrans Auditorium
1250 San Carlos Ave, San Carlos

Three revolutions will fundamentally change transportation. But whether these changes will be for better or worse for social equity, traffic congestion, pollution, and energy use, will depend on the policy choices we make now. Speakers include: Dan Sperling from UC Davis, Deb Schrimmer from Lyft, and TransForm’s Clarrissa Cabansagan. The event will be moderated by Billy Riggs.

Co-sponsors: SAMCEDA, Menlo Spark, TransForm, Friends of Caltrain

Optimizing Our Highways: Moving More People with Fewer Cars

April 30, 7:00PM - 8:30PM
Burlingame Public Library, Lane Room
480 Primrose Road, Burlingame

An express lane is now being considered on 101 from San Francisco to San Jose, but projections show that it alone will do little to solve our traffic woes. Can we make Silicon Valley the place to break out with truly disruptive ideas that work?

Clarrissa Cabansagan, New Mobility Policy Director at TransForm, will outline how a 101 Mobility Action Plan (MAP) can achieve stronger equity and environmental outcomes while improving mobility. Jeff Tumlin, Principal and Director of Strategy at Nelson\Nygaard, will discuss how to best implement managed/express lanes.

Synchronizing Climate and Transportation Plans

May 16, 6:00PM - 7:30PM
Palo Alto Morrison & Foerster
755 Page Mill Road, Palo Alto

Transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the region and the state. What transportation strategies make it harder to reduce GHGs, and what can help? Billy Riggs from University of San Francisco, Michael Boswell from California Polytechnic State University and Gil Friend from the City of Palo Alto will discuss how we can make better decisions today that support a sustainable future.

Co-sponsors: Palo Alto Forward, Friends of Caltrain

Electric Vehicles for EVeryone

May 17, 6:30PM -8:00PM
Redwood City Library
1044 Middlefield Road, Redwood City

How is California accelerating the transition from polluting, fossil fuel cars to electric vehicles? Learn about charging stations and infrastructure, what cars and trucks are available, saving money by going electric, and how everyone can benefit from the growth of electric vehicles. Speakers include: Alan Suleiman from Silicon Valley Clean Energy, Mark Tang from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Janelle London of Coltura, and Shyam Nagrani of MotivPower.

Cosponsors: Acterra, Menlo Spark, Peninsula Interfaith Climate Action
