"In April, [Nicole] Ferrara is leaving Walk SF to lead pedestrian safety efforts at the newly formed Oakland Department of Transportation. Ferrara says her role will be to develop policies and projects that prioritize safety of people walking, and bring those to the mayor and City Council. She recognizes that in doing so, “it’ll be really important to engage communities that are historically underrepresented. … Under the framework of the strategic plant here’s a lot of goals around building authentic community engagement.”

The issue with timing pedestrian lights is that it also slow transit down. Is it possible to do a 'green wave' for peds while not making it worse for buses?
