Transit Study Community Workshop
Thursday, November 7, 2013, 6:30pm
West Oakland Senior Center, 1724 Adeline St., Oakland

Your ideas and opinions are needed! If you’d like to help improve transit in West Berkeley, Emeryville, and West Oakland, consider taking a brief online questionnaire and/or attending a community workshop.

The Emeryville- Berkeley- Oakland Transit Study (EBOTS) will explore future visions and improvements for transit in the study area that covers portions of the three cities. The study, paid for by a Federal Transit Administration Transit Planning Grant through Caltrans, is a collaborative effort between the cities of Berkeley, Emeryville and Oakland, and AC Transit, Amtrak/ Capitol Corridor, BART, Berkeley Gateway Shuttle and Emery-Go-Round.

Please visit these links to take the online questionnaire in English or in Spanish:
English: www.surveymonkey.com/s/EBOTS
or Spanish: es.surveymonkey.com/s/EBOTS_Sp...

Help shape the future of transit in our area by attending one of these interactive community workshops. Your input is important!

Thursday, November 7, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
West Oakland Senior Center, 1724 Adeline St., Oakland

Saturday, November 9, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

I feel like there is a combination of poor driver education at time of licensing, car-centric road design and motorists being able to act with complete impunity

Dan, I could definitely see education being a big part of the problem. I wonder how we could educate drivers without getting police resources?

Considering the stats it seems like more could be done to make the streets safer for pedestrians.

"Pedestrian deaths made up more than a quarter of traffic fatalities over the past decade in the two major metropolitan areas in the Bay Area..."

Do you think staging such stings could help bring this number down?

Majority of motorists not charged, keep licenses when found or suspected to be at fault
