San Pablo Avenue Multimodal Corridor

San Pablo Avenue is the heart of a critical travel corridor that carries tens of thousands of people every day and connects multiple communities to job and activity centers. The corridor provides north-south connections throughout the Inner East Bay.

The San Pablo Avenue corridor

  • Carries local, rapid and express buses;
  • Includes high-activity pedestrian areas and commercial districts;
  • Is a bicycle route in many local jurisdiction plans;
  • Serves as a reliever route for freeway traffic during incidents on I-80.

Jurisdictions are concentrating growth along the corridor, with several higher-density, mixed-use developments recently completed and numerous others under consideration.

Alameda CTC is currently (Fall 2017 - Fall 2018) developing a long term vision for the corridor and identifying short-term projects to improve the safety and experience of all users. This effort focuses on San Pablo Avenue from downtown Oakland to Hilltop Mall/Richmond Parkway, traversing four cities in Alameda County (Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley and Albany) and several Contra Costa County communities (El Cerrito, Richmond and the City of San Pablo).

Thanks to all who completed our short survey during Fall 2017, providing input on your use of the San Pablo corridor. The survey is now closed.
