Envisioning the San Pablo Avenue Corridor

Alameda CTC is developing a long term vision for the San Pablo Avenue multimodal corridor and identifying short-term projects to improve the safety and experience of all users.

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.

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 participated in the Fall 2017 survey. Your input on critical areas along the corridor and your experiences on them and major cross streets, parallel roads, and nearby bicycle routes and transit facilities are invaluable. The survey is now closed.
