In-depth precinct analysis of anti-BRT measure KK results

In-depth precinct analysis of anti-BRT measure KK results

Opponents of the AC Transit BRT project placed Measure KK on the Berkeley November 2008 ballot. The BRT project would restripe Telegraph Avenue with bike- and bus-lanes. Clearly intended to hinder transit (and bike) improvements, Measure KK would have circumvented City Council by requiring voter approval for any reduction in automobile capacity.

Surf the Green Wave in Copenhagen

The Green Wave in Copenhagen from Colville Andersen on Vimeo.

The Green Wave in Copenhagen is in place with high levels of bicycle traffic. If you bicycle at 20 km/h, the traffic lights are timed so that bikes hit green all the way into the city center.

This video is taken along Nørrebrogade, a main arterial which (until a few weeks ago) was one of the main arterial roadways for automobiles, but now reserved for bike and bus through-traffic. While the East Bay bickers over exclusive bus lanes on Telegraph, Copenhagen is well on its way to reaching its goal of 50% bicycle mode share by 2015. Currently, they are at a whopping 36% – nearly even with automobile mode share.

Sharing The Road With Buses

Tag, your it!

Here's a video from one of the West Coast's bike meccas, Portland, on riding with buses and rail. Of course there is no light rail in the East Bay, but it still helps with railroad crossings.

Check out the bike boxes!

With AC Transit's BRT there would be no conflicts at bus stops. See previous post by Eric.
