 Effect on Travel Time*
 Downtown Berkeley to Bay Fair BART


    • “Separate” has fast BRT and a slow local
      bus
           – BRT: 59 minute
           – Local: 109 min
           – Average: 76 min

    • “All-in-One” on average faster than
      Separate
           – BRT: 66 min




* Year 2025, PM peak                                                                            2

Local developed by adjusting existing local bus travel time for projected added congestion in
mixed-flow travel lanes
Average for “Separate” is a weighted average of BRT and Local, weighted by peak period
service frequency (8 BRT per hour, 4 Local per hour)

applying factor ratios based on East Bay BRT DEIS/R estimates.

 Effect on Walk Distance

   • Some local bus stops removed with All-in-One

   • 80% of riders unaffected
          – They walk to the same station as today

   • 20% of riders would need to go to a different
     station
          – Some passengers have no increase in walk distance
          – Some passengers walk further but, the walk distance is
            on average one additional block
