Reducing Emissions, Improving Transit
September 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Transportation contributes 45% of all emissions in San Francisco but only 0.1% comes from Muni, which served over 700,000 daily trips before the pandemic.
Join us for a panel discussion on San Francisco’s climate goals and the essential role of public transportation in meeting them. Our panelists are:
- Sarah Jones is the Planning Director of the SFMTA’s Sustainable Streets division. She has been a planner in the Bay Area for over 20 years, and is responsible for the creation of plans and programs that promote SFMTA’s vision, mission and Strategic Plan.
- Teresa Whinery is a Transportation Engineer and Planner at Fehr and Peers. She is a statewide leader on the relationship between transit, land use and climate.
- Debbie Raphael is the Director of the San Francisco Department of the Environment. Named one of the world’s 100 most influential people in climate policy, Debbie leads the City’s efforts to address climate change and build resilience.
This panel is free and open to the public as part of Bay Area Transit Month this September.
