Buchanan/Marin Bikeway Project

Please join us for the upcoming ground breaking ceremony for the Albany Bay Trail Connector Project (Buchanan/Marin Bikeway). The project involves development of a pathway along Marin and Buchanan Street which will provide a vital connection the the Regional Bay Trail, and a safer pathway for pedestrians, bicyclists and other non-motorized transportation users.

Albany Strollers & Rollers Pushing for Better Ohlone Greenway

The Ohlone Greenway is a fantastic resource for Albany residents. When the closed sections re-open, they will have a newly repaved, widened path for all to enjoy. To enhance safety for all users of the new pathway, Albany Strollers & Rollers is advocating for the newly widened Ohlone Greenway path to be striped for three lanes, instead of two. We support striping two bicycle lanes (one in each direction) and one pedestrian lane which will also border a decomposed granite shoulder, providing extra width.

Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

We are happy to report that the California Department of Transportation has awarded 11 Safe Routes to School grants to schools in the East Bay. Is your kid’s school on the list below? A total of $5.7 million in funds have been awarded in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. These projects include new bikeways on Farm Bureau Rd in Concord, Canal Rd in Pittsburg and Blacow Rd in Fremont. Alameda County schools in particular did well to receive so many grants, which is a testimony to the great work of Transform, Cycles of Change, and our supportive local cities and their staff to get more kids walking and bicycling to school. Good habits start early! On Bike to School Day this past May, bicycling rates to many schools tripled, and the numbers are only growing. It’s is great to see cities working hard to keep up with this surging demand. It is also encouraging to know that thanks to our successful advocacy work, the regional Safe Routes to School Program is intact and fully funded for the next 4 years. We are also working to ensure that the State does not take any of these monies in the future for other roadway projects. Your help may be needed for this. Stay tuned.
