From the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's Transportation 2030 plan: "Today, the Bay Area's surface transportation system is poorly maintained,seriously overcrowded at peak hoursand woefully underfunded. Theseconditions have been decades in themaking, and cannot be reversedovernight. But they can be changed.This Draft Transportation 2030 Plancharts a 25-year course for transforming the Bay Area transportation system...

...By 2030, an electronic farecard will allow millions of passengerseach day to ride any bus, train, ferry or cable car in the Bay Area; electronic toll collection can make traffic-choked toll plazas just a distant memory; and real-time information about conditions on every highway and transit route in the region should be available on demand via whatever portable electronicdevice we'll carry around in the future."
