Save the Berkeley BikeStation! - Dec 8th City Council Meeting

Funding for continued operation and expansion of the Berkeley BikeStation is in jeopardy. Two years ago, the city of Berkeley won grant funding for expansion of BikeStation parking in a street-level location, but has yet to fully commit funds for ongoing operating costs. City Council is scheduled to take up the matter at its Dec 8 meeting.
Due to severe space constraints on the BART concourse level, the Berkeley BikeStation has exceeded design capacity. With funding from BART and a Safe-Routes-to-Transit grant, an on-street location has been secured. Unfortunately, the city of Berkeley has not met its full funding obligations, which would pay for the on-going operating costs. Without a full-funding agreement, the Safe-Routes-to-Transit grant will be lost, as will the leased space. At its Dec 8 meeting, the City Council will receive status report of the project from staff. A large turnout of BikeStation supporters is needed to save this project. Please get there early and sign a speaker card.
