Organization: East Bay Bicycle Coalition
Status: Grant awarded
Address: Oakland, CA
This advocacy campaign to build better bikeways in East Oakland will provide connections to the new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) System and the East Bay Greenway slated for construction in 2013. The East Bay Bicycle Coalition will use their $10,000 PeopleForBikes grant to build community support through an extensive outreach initiative to residents, businesses, faith communities, neighborhood groups, local associations, and others. This project will serve as a model for incorporating bicycle infrastructure into large transit projects.
