Act Now to Close the Gaps!

The Bay Trail project is proceeding smoothly at this time . . .

. . . as reported in the Richmond Bay Trail 2017 New Year Report
There are no actions items at this time.   
Thanks very much for your support.


TRAC, the Trails for Richmond Action Committee, asks that you vote YES on Measure X for transportation funding needed in Contra Costa County. Measure X is a one-half cent sales tax that raises $2.9 billion over 30 years to fund many needed transportation improvements. These local dollars will be leveraged to bring in state and federal funding for critical local projects and programs. Supported by all cities in the country, League of Women Voters, Bike East Bay, business, labor and environmental leaders, your vote is needed to secure the required two thirds approval.

TRAC supports Measure X because about 8% of the overall funding will go for bicycle and pedestrian projects, representing $224 million out of the expected expenditures. 4% is specifically earmarked for pedestrian, bicycle and trail facilities. In addition, funding for ambitious complete streets projects promises to redesign and rebuild major streets in such a way to provide significant benefits for pedestrians and bicyclists, e.g. protected bike lanes where possible. 

Measure X also will:
Repair potholes and fix roads
Improve BART capacity and reliability
Improve highways
Enhance bus and other public transit services
Increase safety for cyclists and pedestrians
Improve air quality
Reduce traffic on roads and highways
Measure X is a robust plan to improve transportation, and incorporates strong accountability measures to make sure the money is used as authorized by the voters. It requires independent oversight and financial and performance audits, and every dollar raised by Measure X is required to be spent to benefit local residents. Please vote YES on X.
