Encouraging cleaner, safer transportation options for our neighborhood

How do we create a livable, walkable neighborhood where people can move freely and safely throughout West Oakland? To get there, we need to mitigate the outsized impact of so many freeways and industrial corridors by:

  • Improving the design and safety of local streets.
  • Building better pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure.
  • Incentivizing cleaner transportation alternatives for residents and workers.
