Link21 — the program aimed at allowing people to more easily travel around the Megaregion by train by connecting urban and intercity rail throughout Northern California — will be the subject of a public outreach event June 27.
A virtual community meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 27 for a presentation and Q&A session with the Link21 team. An online open house is also available through July 31.
At the core of Link21 is a new train crossing between Oakland and San Francisco, unlocking better travel possibilities across the 21-county Northern California Megaregion. A new transbay rail crossing between Oakland and San Francisco was included in two major regional funding measures: BART Measure RR (70.5% approval in 2016) and Regional Measure 3 (55% approval in 2018).
Input now will help Link21 staff better understand the service improvements that will best meet the needs of the diverse community, officials said.
