Staff will discuss best practices for relieving traffic congestion around schools and present recommendations for improving school district and public transit coordination.
Clean Vehicle Funding Opportunities
Staff will share information about funding opportunities for vehicle/equipment purchases and replacements as well as funding for parking space electrification at freight terminals.
