The goBerkeley Pilot Program was launched in Downtown Berkeley, the Elmwood, and Southside/Telegraph in July 2013 with 3 overarching goals: to support economic vitality, to reduce congestion and emissions and to assess the feasibility of expanding the program beyond the 2-year pilot period. Council authorized the Pilot Program to test the extent to which a combination of free bus passes for employees, carshare discounts for businesses, and demand-based parking management could achieve these goals. The goBerkeley Pilot Program worked closely with businesses and residents, conducted visitors, resident and employee surveys, and collected transit usage and parking data before and during the pilot period. The program also tested automated parking data collection methods to ascertain the most accurate and cost-effective program design going forward.
