NASA AMES TO HOST WATER TRANSIT PUBLIC FORUM APRIL 12TH
A public forum to discuss Bay Area Water Transit for the 21st Century, including a vast new network of high-speed ferries criss-crossing San Francisco Bay, will be held on Monday, April 12.
Sponsored by the Bay Area Council and the Bay Area Economic Forum, the forum will be held from 1-4 p.m. in the Main Auditorium, Bldg. 201 at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA.
Bay Area residents are losing 100,000 hours per day sitting on congested highways, costing more than $814,000 in lost productivity, wasted fuel and damage to the environment. Under the direction of the State Senate, the Bay Area Council and the Bay Area Economic Forum formed a Blue Ribbon Task Force to study the feasibility of creating a water transit system for the region.
Featured speakers will include Mountain View Mayor Mary Lou Zoglin, Sunnyvale City Council Member Julia Miller, Joel Suty, vice president of Lockheed Martin Missiles & Space Co., and William Berry, Deputy Director of NASA Ames. In addition, presentations and concepts currently under consideration will be presented. Public input and participation is encouraged.
