I live in North Oakland and take Amtrak in Emeryville to Sacramento twice a week. I really like to bike from my house to Amtrak but struggle with feeling it's irresponsible to do so, given the unsafe choices of routes. I live at 62nd and Shattuck. The quickest way means spending 4-6 blocks on Stanford. Cars go extremely fast - 40-50 mph - in both directions. There is a shoulder, but there's debris and uneven road. I'm thankful to be alive by the end of it. The other way is Alcatraz - it's out of the way a bit. It has problems too - very busy with a lot of activity. Furthermore, to get to either street at night from the train station involves a tough choice: Emeryville is pretty dark and desolate; getting to San Pablo involves going through desolate streets. Then - do I choose Stanford and risk being hit by a fast moving car or Alcatraz - A surprising number of people are commuting on Amtrak to Sacramento daily. Amtrak in Emeryville offers free parking - but it would be great to feel like biking was a good option. Thanks, Michelle Quinn
