Mobility and Equity Committee
The Parking & Transportation Sustainable Transportation and Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Unit has been developing robust alternative and active transportation options with our strategic plan and Long Range Development Plan goals. Furthermore, due to the City of Berkeley’s newly released scooter/bikeshare RFP, P&T has launched a new transportation focused committee that will focus on: public transit (beyond the scope of the existing student-focused AC Transit EasyPass Committee, shared (micro)mobility, and improving mobility justice and inclusion in program and scope to our committee, in order to ensure that existing and proposed shared mobility operations are further advanced for our community.
The mission of the UC Berkeley P&T Transportation and Mobility & Equity Advisory Committee (MEC)is to identify and recommend policies, practices and strategies that elevate stronger awareness regarding campus alternate transportation and micromobility initiatives. This committee will be internally focused, centered on representing a diverse set of perspectives from the UC Berkeley undergraduate, graduate and professional students, faculty, and staff populations. We will discuss project proposals and local & regional programmatic updates to gauge stakeholder input, identify operational gaps for further improvement, and develop recommendations to help facilitate smooth execution of transit & micromobility programs in and around the UC Berkeley campus. In addition, concerns addressed during the committee meetings may be shared with third-party mobility providers and partners, including the City of Berkeley, to improve their service for the UC Berkeley community.
