LINK21 Will Shape the Future of Transportation in Northern California
The Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (Capitol Corridor) and San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART), in coordination with several municipal and transportation agencies throughout the 21-County Northern California Megaregion, continue to host online public workshops for the Link21 Program. The series began on Thursday, June 17, 2021.
The next workshop will be held on Thursday, July 15, at 5:30pm for Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo counties. Co-hosted by the City of Sacramento, the Yolo County Transportation District, and the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency, the interactive workshop will inform the public and gather feedback about transportation needs and priorities. This vital information will help shape the program during the early planning phase. For more information and to access the event link, visit the Link21 website.
Although workshops are geographically specific, the public is invited to attend any or all of the workshops. All workshops will be presented in English, Spanish, and Cantonese. Upon request, Link21 will provide reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities and individuals with limited English proficiency who wish to participate in the public workshops. To set up these accommodations, please email [email protected] or call 855-905-5465 at least five days in advance of the workshop.
The Link21 Program and it partner agencies will transform Northern California’s passenger rail network into a faster, more interconnected system, providing safe, efficient, and affordable travel for everyone. The Link21 Program aligns with and builds on the California State Rail Plan. At the core of Link21 is a new transbay crossing between Oakland and San Francisco.
