Engage with the City of Berkeley’s efforts to improve transit infrastructure and access.
In line with the Transit-First Policy in the General Plan Transportation Element, the City is partnering with local transit agencies to make it easier and more convenient to travel by bus or train. This includes improvements to infrastructure, such as new bus lanes, seating and shelter at bus stops, modifying traffic signals to extend the green time for buses, new crosswalks near bus stops, and installing bicycle lanes leading to BART stations. To provide suggestions to the City for ways to improve public transit infrastructure and access, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Projects to improve public transportation
