While it's goodd that they are looking to save costs on their office space, it's discouraging that they need "more office space for future growth of staff." The MTC is a growing agency that will gain even more regional power into the future...

How come it takes 12 paragraphs for the MTC to say we don't care what others think, we are doing what we want.

This building is expected to cost 1 million dollars per year more than what the MTC is paying for offices in Oakland. Not to worry they said they would just raise the tolls to make the extra needed money.

After squandering 200 million dollars on the Sunol Express lane and 250 million dollars on the Mission 880 Interchange, both of which have made the traffic more congested and hampered carpooling, why would anyone want these morons deciding the future of the Bay Area.
