    Oh god, the 51 in Berkeley. What’s with that town? It’s all about million-dollar “bungalows” and free parking. Elmwood and Rockridge form one of the few truly walkable corridors in the East Bay. Improving the bus service is important for the future of that area. I would even suggest car-free/parking-free College as the ultimate goal.
