Text: "Concept 1: Road Diet Design Elements • One travel lane in each direction • Center turn lane • Protected bike lanes, 6.5 ft (materials TBD) • Intersection left-turn lanes • Bus boarding islands (increases transit reliability) • Parking on both sides • New flashing lights at some crossings • New pedestrian refuge islands Trade-offs ・ Buses share single lane with all vehicles ・ 20-25% of parking removed (to increase visibility between drivers & people walking and biking)"

Text: "Concept 2: Bus-Only Lanes Design Elements • Bus-only lane in each direction (increased efficiency & reliability; aligns with AC Transit's long-term goals) • 1 travel lane in each direction (vs 2 today) • Protected bike lanes, 5-6 ft (materials TBD) • Parking on one side of street • New pedestrian-activated lights at some intersections Trade-offs • 50-75% of parking removed (one full side +) • Can't fit pedestrian refuge islands • Still 4 lanes to cross (likely 5 at signals) • May be difficult to fit left-turn lanes • At intersection, bike lane shares space with right turns • On side without parking, bus stops shared with bike lane • Narrow bike lanes put cyclists closer to opening car doors"
