The Need for Action
US-101 is a key piece of the transportation network connecting communities in San Francisco, the Peninsula, and the South Bay. US-101 is one of the most economically important corridors in California, as well as a near neighbor to more than 640,000 residents. The US-101 Mobility Action Plan (MAP) project is developing programs and policies to address the following problems:
US-101 is not moving as many people as it could
Travel time on US-101 is unpredictable
Worsening congestion reduces the number of jobs accessible in 30 minutes
US-101 causes public health burdens and mobility constraints for nearby communities
Congestion, unpredictability, and limited transit options present mobility challenges for all, but some groups are more vulnerable
Hourly-wage and shift-based workers who may lose a job or wages due to tardiness
Low-income households who spend a greater share of their income on transportation
Students with set class times who may miss key education opportunities
Parents and caregivers who may pay fees or risk children's safety for every minute they are late for pick-up

Mobility Action Plan Goals
The ideal US-101 corridor serves the region equitably
in service to three goals:
Offer reliable travel times for all people, regardless of how they travel
Prioritize high-capacity mobility options for all, such as buses and carpools
Foster healthy and sustainable communities along its right-of-way
Study the US-101 corridor to better understand travel patterns, policies, demographics, and transportation services available today.
Launch the 101 MAP survey and website. Gather input from the community at pop-up events and public meetings.
Share what we heard from the community. Develop and refine a framework for evaluating potential policies and programs.
Wrap up Phase I of the project and share our recommendations.
The US-101 MAP is being developed in partnership with the following agencies:
