SPUR San Jose, 76 South First Street, San Jose, CA 95113
Autonomous vehicles have been the focus of experiments for nearly a century, but with innovation finally catching up to high aspirations what were once deemed the “vehicles of tomorrow” are beginning to quickly look like the vehicles of today. Come hear the findings of a new report that analyzes the impacts of these vehicles on the region and proposes what jurisdictions should be doing to plan ahead.

Expand Your Horizon: Talks on the Future of the Bay Area
(Dates and details coming soon)
The Expand Your Horizon: Talks on the Future of the Bay Area event series will be held now through summer 2019 and will cover topics ranging from autonomous vehicles and regional growth strategies to the future of jobs and climate mitigation, among others. Hosted by MTC and ABAG, these events will be held in conjunction with the release of a series of perspective papers that will help inform the Horizon initiative, an effort currently underway.

What is Horizon?
The Horizon initiative will allow the public, planners and policymakers to wrestle with a range of challenging questions that traditionally have been outside the regional planning process. MTC and ABAG have undertaken the Horizon initiative to explore the pressing issues and possible challenges Bay Area residents may face through 2050. Horizon will be the first comprehensive Bay Area planning effort to look not just at transportation and housing but economic development, resilience and the effects of emerging technologies.
