Berkeley Bike Station Expansion Saved by Outpouring of Supporters

Berkeley Bike Station Expansion Saved by Outpouring of Supporters

Local advocates and BART officials successfully defeated a proposal by Berkeley staff on December 8, 2008 that would have caused a setback in the Bike Station expansion plans and resulted in the loss of over $1 million in funding committed to the project.

Jubilant supporters assembled in the Berkeley City Hall lobby following unanimous council action to prioritize the Bike Station Expansion.

A street-level Bike Station will open in 2009.

The location now known as “The Spot” on Shattuck Ave adjacent to the entrance to the Downtown Berkeley BART Station will provide guarded parking for up to 300 bicycles.

Mayor Tom Bates reminded the council members and public in the packed Council Chamber that the highly visible, street-level Bike Station will provide encouragement for many commuters and shoppers to use a bicycle. “The City of Berkeley is taking action toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” he said.

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

Help save the Berkeley BikeStation!

With space running out on the Berkeley BART concourse level, securing a safe, friendly, above-ground location is imperative. The city of Berkeley has already secured funding from BART and a Safe-Routes-to-Transit grant. But without a funding commitment from the city, to support ongoing operations, the grant funding will be lost.
