Your knowledge, experience, and insight into local transportation systems will be crucial for the development of a successful plan, and to hold ACTC accountable to its safety and active transportation goals.
ACTC is working on a major study for E. 14th St./Mission Blvd.: examining transit, walking, biking, and vehicle traffic along the corridor to provide a long-term vision for mobility in Alameda County. This multimodal corridor study will stretch from San Leandro to Fremont and include Decoto Road and Fremont Boulevard as well as the BART system and other transit and regional transportation connections.
As the regional transportation funding and planning agency, ACTC is leading the high-level analysis of this major corridor, looking at commute patterns, the interaction between transit, biking, and walking, and strategies for reducing car traffic regionally. The study is happening at the same time as several local street design and bikeway projects, including in Ashland, Cherryland, and Hayward. Bike East Bay advocates are working hard to make sure that high-quality protected bikeways are part of these local street projects.
With multiple protected bikeway projects already in design and construction locally, the East 14th St./Mission Blvd./Fremont Blvd. study aims to build off those existing efforts while providing additional plans for rapid bus service, multi-modal hubs, and seamless interaction between walking, biking, transit, and emerging micro-mobility technologies. The stated project goals for ACTC are:
Support planned long term growth and economic development. Address the range of mobility needs for Study Area residents, businesses, workers and visitors
Increase the share of non-auto trips
Improve connectivity between transportation modes and services
Provide a safe and welcoming environment for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users
Optimize the throughput of existing infrastructure
Provide flexibility for future changes in transportation technology, including connected vehicles.
