Bike-to-Work Day in Emeryville saw 30% increase in bicyclists over last year!

Here’s a report from Peter Schultze-Allen, Emeryville’s Environmental Programs Analyst:

The count at our three bike stations in Emeryville was up 30% from last year. And that doesn’t include the new bike station at 46th and Adeline that had a big turnout.

We had record numbers at all our stations!

1. San Pablo and 40th once again was the leader with 322 cyclists riding by and/or stopping at the table (up 15% from last year.) Back in 2006 we only had 110!

2. The Greenway Station was very popular with 224 cyclists. Clif Bar wants to host a station there next year on their own like Novartis.

3. Next was 46th and Adeline with 206. A great start for a new station. Oakland is planning on striping bike lanes on Adeline soon so that will help next year.

4. The Bay Trail station at Powell and Frontage was up 50% over last year with 127 cyclists counted!

5. Novartis had 168 at their station this year.

On to Next Year!

    It is called Frank Ogawa Plaza, please correct that.

    The downtown Oakland plaza in question was formerly known as Frank Ogawa Plaza. It’s since been renamed Oscar Grant Plaza after the Oakland citizen murdered by a BART police officer a few years ago.
