Berkeley BRT Public Workshop – Transportation Commission

"The public workshop for the LPA (Locally Preferred Alternative) has been split into two sessions, one with the Transportation Commission and the other with the Planning Commission. Opportunities to learn about BRT and the draft LPA proposal will be provided from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM before the meetings. Public comment will be taken at the commission meetings which will begin at 7:00 PM. Agendas and staff reports for these meetings will be posted on this site as they become available.

The primary purpose of the LPA process is to collect community comments on this proposal.  There are two reasons for this:

  1. To develop a route design that the citizens of Berkeley would like AC Transit to study; and
  2. To determine major issues of concern for AC Transit to study."

Please submit
written comments to brt@cityofberkeley.info – ideally before November 10
for the Transportation Commission packet, or a couple of weeks later to still
get into the Planning Commission’s packet.

*Planning Commission meeting will be held December 9*
