MTC, Bay Area Planners to Invest in Easing Bay Bridge Commute and Alternatives

KGO-TV News (San Francisco) reports, “Bay Area transportation planners have approved $40 million in funding specifically to ease the Bay Bridge commute and alternatives. But the Metropolitan Transportation Commission is funding some temporary remedies, like added ferries and busses.” Metropolitan Transportation Commission spokesperson Randy Rentschler tells the station, “These are things that we know work. We do these things during a BART strike, for example. We want to take those emergency matters and make them permanent.”
