Berkeley Transportation Letter

From the archives: spring 2013
More than 19,000 pedestrians, nearly 5,000 bicyclists, at least 10,000 automobiles, and 1,200 buses move in and out of the roadways surrounding the UC Berkeley campus on a typical class day. No wonder this small area is responsible for more than 20 percent of crashes in the city involving automobiles and pedestrians and bicyclists.

SFpark wants to reduce congestion and increase bike and pedestrian safety by helping motorists find parking more easily. But Dan Chatman asks if it makes it harder for the poor to find a space?


With his extensive interests and achievements in transportation, BTL asked Pravin Varaiya to share his thoughts on the future of transportation and how students can make the most of their years at Berkeley.
