Respond to the Berkeley Strategic Transportation (BeST) Plan Survey

Berkeley, California (Friday, March 25, 2016) - Fill out an online survey to build the City's transportation strategy, a document that will prioritize improvements to our transportation infrastructure - streets, sidewalks, bikeways and intersections.

How people move through a community has a powerful impact. The design of a community's transportation systems can strengthen neighborhoods. Better pedestrian spaces can spur economic vitality. Transportation design can help achieve environmental goals, such as reducing greenhouse gases. It can improve social and racial equity by improving mobility for low-income residents or underprivileged groups.

Think about your values and your goals for what Berkeley should be, and let us know through our transportation survey:

Online Survey

To look at transportation comprehensively, we compiled a single list of all the transportation-related projects in the City's adopted plans. That includes the Pedestrian Master Plan, Bicycle Plan, and plans for different areas of town.

We then grouped every proposed transportation project geographically as well as by theme, such as for bicycle or pedestrian crossings. This allows us to compare one set of improvements to another.

We have already begun to evaluate these improvements to the City's infrastructure, including roads, sidewalks and intersections. Now, we need your help figuring out how to prioritize

  • Mobility and access for all modes of transportation
  • Transportation safety
  • Access to commercial districts
  • Transportation choices for diverse communities
  • Environmental sustainability and resiliency

Let us know what's most important to you

With your input, we can evaluate and prioritize those projects that address these essential needs. Plans are the critical first step, helping establish goals and a vision. To implement them, many projects require environmental review, public processes, council approval or outside funding. Once plans are complete, we can move forward to fund, design, and construct new transportation improvements that benefit our whole community.
