Downtown Berkeley Parking & Transportation Demand Management (PTDM) Report
This Downtown Berkeley Parking & Transportation Demand Management (PTDM) Report is intended to provide guidance on the implementation of Berkeley’s Downtown Area Plan (DAP), which was developed through six years of effort with the extensive participation of Berkeley's citizens and the cooperation and support of the University of California, Berkeley. This report was funded in large part by a Station Area Planning Grant awarded to Berkeley by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the Association of Bay Area Governments. A companion document, Existing Parking & Transportation Demand Management Programs, Conditions & Practices Technical Memorandum, was completed in May 2010, and is attached as Appendix A.
This report recommends policies and actions that will enable the City to comply fully with the Access Chapter of the DAP, which sets forth a vision for sustainable transportation in Downtown Berkeley. The DAP Strategic Statement emphasizes that the transportation management strategies set forth in the DAP are intended to give priority to transit, pedestrian, and bicyclists, while reducing automobile use, especially by commuters. The Strategic Statement also describes the alternative modes of transportation (transit, walking, bicycling, ridesharing, etc.) that serve Downtown and ways to shift demand from driving alone to alternative modes.
