Safe Routes to Transit Grant Award

Posted on March 10, 2014 at 9:40 AM by Suzanne Iarla

At its February 26 meeting, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission approved the Safe Routes to Transit Advisory Committee’s award recommendation for the 5th round of Safe Routes to Transit funding. The City was awarded $100,000 to conduct further analyses, engineering and stakeholder engagement to develop a Complete Street design plan for a separated bikeway, pedestrian access and bus bulbs along San Pablo Avenue. The proposed plan would provide preliminary design for safe and attractive multimodal access to AC Transit and BART facilities and would enable the City and partner agencies to request capital funding to complete final design and construction of a pilot project. For more information on this effort, contact Emily Alter, Community Planning Analyst at 215-4385.
