Biking, Walking, Transit

The City is committed to providing a transportation system that allows safe, efficient and accessible travel by a variety of modes and promotes the use of alternatives to the single-occupant vehicle. The City’s General Plan, the Circulation Plan for Bicyclists and Pedestrians (2007), and the ADA Transition Plan each include numerous goals that support walking, bicycling and public transit use and the City Council reaffirmed that this was a priority in the Strategic Plan for 2015-2020.

The City achieves Council’s mission by pursuing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure improvements, accessibility improvements, encouraging pedestrian-oriented land use, and coordinating regionally on non-motorized and transit related issues.


The following planning documents were developed by the City to help create a more walkable, greener, and economically vibrant El Cerrito through pedestrian, bicycle, park, open space, and urban design improvements:
