Open to all; bring a lunch!

The Oakland Streetcar Plan explores the potential for a streetcar system as an engine of economic development and smart growth in Oakland and offers a “road map” toward its successful implementation.

The plan was published in 2010 by Daniel Jacobson, a Stanford University student, as an independent study project.  The plan has been featured in two mayoral platforms and over a dozen publications ranging from the San Francisco Chronicle to Financial Times Deutschland.  Oakland is expected to move forward with an alternative analysis for the project later this year.
