BOMA San Francisco Members Meet with Bay Area Metropolitan Transportation Commission Chair - Amy Rein Worth

BOMA GAPAC Chair Horace Green with MTC Chair Amy Rein Worth

BOMA San Francisco Members:

BOMA's Government Affairs Policy Advisory Committee (GAPAC) welcomed the Honorable Chair of San Francisco Bay Area Metropolitan Transportation Commission, Amy Rein Worth, who was the mayor of Orinda in 2013 and is now a council member.

Councilmember Worth spoke about transit in the Bay Area, Muni and BART specifically for San Francisco, as it is one of the top issues that continue to be a concern to our building members, their tenants and employees. San Francisco is adding more residents and jobs, and the Muni and BART systems need funding to allow for service upgrades to occur.  

About the Metropolitan Transportation Commission

Created by the state Legislature in 1970, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is the transportation planning, coordinating and financing agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. Over the years, the agency's scope has grown, and it is now three agencies in one, functioning as MTC as well as the Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) and the Service Authority for Freeways and Expressways (SAFE).
