BAY AREA TRANSPORTATION PARTNERSHIP MEETS TOMORROW

 BAY AREA TRANSPORTATION PARTNERSHIP MEETS TOMORROW
 OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bay Area Partnership


-- a loose confederation of local, regional, state and federal transportation and environmental protection officials who are working together to ease traffic congestion, clear the air and foster better working relationships -- will meet tomorrow in Oakland. The day-long meeting is set to begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Joseph P. Bort MetroCenter Auditorium, 101 Eighth St., in Oakland, across from the Lake Merritt BART Station.
 On the morning's agenda will be a discussion of how to select future projects for inclusion in the Partnership's Joint Urban Mobility Program, or JUMP Start, a number of near-term, relatively low-cost transportation projects; a session on options for improving the effectiveness of a host of committees set up to advise the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), including possible consolidation; and an exchange of ideas on the desired strategy for pursuing MTC's upcoming revision to its "Regional Transportation Plan."
 In the afternoon, the Partnership's recently formed Blue Ribbon Advisory Council will meet to ratify its mission statement and plot a strategy for helping the Bay Area define a long-term vision for transportation investments.
 The Blue Ribbon Advisory Council includes a mix of Bay Area community and public interest leaders, as well as state and national transportation and environmental figures.
 MTC is the transportation planning and financing agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
