BART recently publicized some new public input opportunities related to the Berkeley – El Cerrito corridor access study project. There are some Zoom office hours, as well as a new survey in an “online open house”.
Plaza for the People is still trying to assess what has been proposed, as the online open house website doesn’t list many tangible specifics as it relates to the El Cerrito Plaza station. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to review the materials for yourselves and participate in some upcoming public input opportunities:
Wednesday April 27, 5-6pm: Zoom office hours, topic is “Parking management around El Cerrito Plaza station”. https://us06web.zoom.us/j/7888271878
Wednesday May 4 and Thursday May 5, 5-6pm: Zoom office hours, topic is “General access strategies for all stations”.
Wednesday May 4 Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83622839977
Thursday May 5 Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/84125179648
Public online open house and survey: https://bartberkeleyelcerritocap.participate.online/

We hope to learn more details regarding the list of strategies under consideration. From initial review, we are concerned by the lack of protected bike lanes being proposed. We hope the corridor access study continues to leave no stone unturned in pursuing an “all of the above” strategy.
