The Best of The Bay Link

The Bay Link
Karl Nielsen

The Bay Link – the joint blog of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) – recently celebrated the six-month anniversary of its "soft launch" in December 2017.

Over that time, we've served as a single public information resource for both agencies, providing news, views and analysis on a wide range of regionally relevant topics, including housing, land use, transportation, the economy, the environment, climate change and resilience, among many others.

Below is a curated round-up of the "Best of the Bay Link" that you may have missed over the last few months. Don't forget to subscribe to receive a weekly digest of the latest posts, and feel free to drop us a line at blog@bayareametro.gov for any comments or questions.
