Bike East Bay was at the opening of a key segment of the Iron Horse Trail – a multi-use pathway south of Dublin Pleasanton BART Station.
On August 19, Bike East Bay joined many elected officials in Pleasanton for the grand opening ceremony of a key segment of the Iron Horse Trail – a shiny new multi-use pathway immediately south of Dublin Pleasanton BART Station. You can now ride south from BART to Santa Rita Road where the existing Iron Horse Trail starts.
“If we like getting together like this to celebrate the opening of family-friendly pathways that connect our neighborhoods, vote yes on Measure BB Nov 4, which includes much needed local funding to give people transportation choices,” said Congressmember Eric Swalwell, CA District 15
That’s right, Measure BB includes $232 million for closing gaps in the Iron Horse Trail and the Bay Trail and will extend the East Bay Greenway south toward Hayward. Support from votersNovember 4 will help finish the Iron Horse Trail in the Tri Valley and build hundreds of miles of family-friendly bikeways throughout Alameda County.
We are getting closer to our vision of a Martinez-Livermore bikeway with this latest segment completed, thanks in large part to a TIGER I grant, Measure WW and your local transportation sales tax Measure B, delivering projects that give you more commute options. Back in 2002, Measure B funded the first segment of the Iron Horse Trail between Santa Rita Rd and Stanley Blvd. Reauthorization of Measure BB will help close the final short gap just west of Santa Rita Road and can extend the Iron Horse Trail into Downtown Livermore from its terminus at the city limits.
Reauthorization of Measure B is called Measure BB on the November 4, 2014 ballot and includes $230 million over 30 years for funding the Iron Horse Trail, Bay Trail and East Bay Greenway. Learn more on our Yes on BB campaign page.
