About the Bay Area Monitor

Launched in 1975, the Bay Area Monitor is published six times a year (August, October, December, February, April, and June) by the League of Women Voters of the Bay Area. It primarily covers transportation, air quality, water, open space, and land use issues in the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. The publication is distributed in print and online to elected and appointed officials, government staff, business and community leaders, nonprofit affiliates, library patrons, engaged residents, and League members. Subscriptions to the publication are free.

To receive print copies of the Monitor, or to sign up to receive e-mail notifications when new editions are posted online, please visit our subscription page.

Subscriptions are free, but reader donations are appreciated and help sustain the Monitor. Donations are tax-deductible, and may be made at our donation page.

Financial Support

The Monitor’s primary financial support comes from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District. The publication also receives funding from advertising sponsors and through reader donations. The Monitor is nonpartisan, and operates with editorial autonomy.
