AC Transit

Computer-animated simulation of AC Transit BRT

AC Transit has created a powerful animation of the proposed BRT system. This is intended to be a realistic simulation, taking into account expected traffic volumes. The project would bring enormous benefits to cyclists in the Telegraph and International Blvd corridors, including: Class II bike lanes, separating bus and bike traffic (by moving bus stops into the center of the street), and level-platform boarding of bicyclists.

2006 Specialized Hardrock Pro

It is a 2006 Specialized Hardrock Pro Bike. It is the black/gray colored bicycle. Had a small pouch under the seat for storing stuff from Livermore cyclery. Had a water bottle holder, a holder for a small air pump and it had a spedometer on the handle bars. It was very dusty as it had just been ridden up the Plesanton ridge.

AC Transit to subsidize car parking

AC Transit is looking to spend $28 million to subsidize construction of a new parking garage. Len Conly, a Friend of BRT is looking for support:

Dear All:

I need your help and that of your organizations to preserve parking
charges at AC Transit Park & Ride lots and prevent our riders from
subsiding car drivers.

There is a staff recommendation on the agenda for 11 June which will
lead to the elimination of parking charges for AC Transit Park & Ride
lots and garages. I apologize for the late notice.

Ballot box transportation planning

Dean Metzger and Bruce Kaplan of Berkeley have filed a request for a ballot initiative for an anti-BRT initiative, presumably for the upcoming November ballot if they get enough signatures.

If successful, their initiative would essentially remove City Council and professional planners from transportation decision-making. Their initiative would require voter approval of any roadway reconfiguration that removes space for automobile, parking (and even landscaping) in order to accommodate buses.

BRT - Joint meeting of Berkeley Planning and Transportation Commissions

What: Joint meeting of Planning Commission and Transportation Commission

When: Wednesday, April 9, 7 p.m.

Where: North Berkeley Senior Center, MLK Jr. Way & Hearst Ave.

The Draft Environmental Impact Rreport (DEIR, released by AC Transit in May 2007), as its name implies, is just a first draft, and it is used to get public comments about issues that should be analyzed in the Final EIR (FEIR). The mitigations in the FEIR will depend on the input that AC Transit gets from the Planning Commission and the City Council.

Get On-Board (without delay)

[G2:1059 class=right]A video is available for those who don’t know how to load your bike into the racks on the front of the AC Transit buses, or in the luggage bays. (The question of “how to load and board” often arises during our bike education classes.)
