Walking and Biking Counts
As part of our Bridge the Gap campaign, we recently enlisted volunteers to help us see how biking and walking has changed since we counted last. Having done the very same audit in the fall of 2006, these counts offer interesting insights into how biking and walking patterns have changed in these locations over the last ten years. Read the full report.
We believe the City of Alameda and the City of Oakland should create real biking and walking options for people who walk and bike between West Alameda and Oakland. A bicycle and pedestrian bridge is the only option that would provide 24×7, convenient, enjoyable and reliable access for everyone.
This solution would:
- Reduce traffic congestion through and around the Webster and Posey tubes
- Provide access to BART and Amtrak for Alameda’s West End residents
- Generate new recreational opportunities for residents on both sides of the estuary
- Increase patronage for local businesses in Jack London Square, Alameda Landing and on Webster Street
- Promote healthy lifestyles
- Reduce drive-alone trips
- Decrease emissions and improve air quality
- Connect communities and better showcase the estuary
