The rapidly growing coalition of community-based organizations is working overtime to deliver a much improved Measure B Reauthorization to the voters of Alameda County for the November 2012 ballot. To date, we succeeded in getting support for approximately 12% for bike/ped projects and programs, an additional 2% added to AC Transit funding, a pilot program for a student bus pass, and to have the final plan approval moved back to January 26, 2012, giving more time to develop support for a better plan.

Currently, the draft Measure B plan includes 8.35% for bike/ped projects and there is support from several local elected officials to dedicate 20% of the Local Streets & Roads money toward repaving bikeways and repairing sidewalks. Overall, we are specifically pushing to have the dedicated bike/ped funding increased to 11.35%, providing an additional $233 million over the next 30 years for bike/ped projects. We are also working with staff at the Alameda CTC to strengthen the guidelines in Measure B requiring all Local Streets and Roads monies to comply with Complete Streets requirements.
