They even welcome leashed dogs!
Feel free to bring lunch, dinner or snacks from your favorite restaurants on Solano or San Pablo Avenues, too!
Support those who support us – hope to see you there as Bike Month winds down!!

Berkeley San Pablo Ave Traffic Safety Walk
Nov 5 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Join Walk Bike Berkeley members, District 2 Berkeley City Council Candidate Terry Taplin, Transportation Commissioners, and others to discuss road safety challenges and opportunities on San Pablo Avenue.
Remember, what is done in Berkeley will have an impact on Albany’s stretch of San Pablo!

Meet at Dwight & San Pablo, walk to University Ave (7 blocks)
RSVP: info@walkbikeberkeley.org

WHY SAN PABLO?

  • San Pablo from Dwight to University is the highest priority street segment to fix in Berkeley’s draft Pedestrian Plan, based on safety and equity needs

  • Just 14% of Berkeley’s street miles account for 93% of pedestrian fatalities & severe injuries

  • Berkeley’s busy, arterial streets are the most dangerous for people walking and biking

  • Alameda County, including Albany, is planning the future of the San Pablo Avenue Corridor

    IF YOU WANT TO WALK OR BIKE TO THE START FROM ALBANY, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT AND PROPOSED STARTING TIME & PLACE IN “COMMENTS”
