CENTRAL MARIN FERRY CONNECTION USE PROJECTIONS (2013)

Update, January 2014  The Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) has recently completed a study looking at use projections and potential benefits of the first phase of the Central Marin Ferry Connection project which will extend the Cal Park Tunnel path from its current southern terminus to the south over Sir Francis Drake Boulevard on a new structure, connecting to the existing multiuse path that parallels Corte Madera Creek and provides access to the ferry terminal and Greenbrae.  You can read the study here .

 

BIKE SHARING FEASIBILITY STUDY (2013)

The Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) completed a study looking at the feasibility of initiating a bicycle sharing program in Marin.  The program would be similar to those launched in other places, including Paris, Minneapolis, Washington DC, and Boston.  It would feature self-service, automated stations at various locations around the county where one could obtain a bicycle, ride it to their destination, and return it to the same or another station.  The bicycles are designed for around-town types of trips, featuring baskets and racks to carry things as opposed to longer-distance touring bicycles such as those rented by Blazing Saddles in San Francisco which are targeted exclusively toward tourists.  You can read the study on the TAM website.

ALEXANDER AVENUE/FORT BAKER CORRIDOR STUDY (2012)

The National Park Service (Golden Gate National Recreation Area) conducted a corridor analysis through Fort Baker between the Golden Gate Bridge and the Sausalito city limits, focusing on Alexander Avenue and connections to Fort Baker from Vista Point.  The study considers a range of options to improve access for pedestrians and bicyclists.  View the study here.
