Travel, shop, and live locally

Join El Cerrito/Richmond Annex Walk & Roll (EC/RA Walk & Roll) in advocating for mobility choice — streets that safely welcome sustainable, equitable, and fun alternatives to the automobile for both necessary and fun local travel in El Cerrito and adjacent neighborhoods.

EC/RA Walk & Roll believes that the future of personal transportation for the Bay Area can't just be two- or three-ton cars, even if they are electric. Forty-two percent of travel trips in America are for two miles or less. In El Cerrito, where geographically nothing is very far from anything else, it shouldn't be necessary to drive a freeway-grade car to get to BART, get a haircut, or pick up a prescription. We live in a town with significant topographic challenges, yet electrified micromobility is rapidly addressing this challenge. Let's prepare for a green and prosperous future without requiring the financial burden of car ownership.

Join and take our short survey about walking and biking in El Cerrito.

El Cerrito Local Road Safety Plan

The City is currently developing a Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) that looks at traffic safety on our local streets. An LRSP results in an implementable plan with strategies, actions, and projects focused on reducing crashes on City roadways – particularly fatal and serious injury crashes. For more information about our local road safety showing information maps, click here. To take a questionnaire that ask you about your street safety concerns, click here.

Climate Action and Adaptation Plan for El Cerrito being updated
The City of El Cerrito is updating its Climate Action Plan from 2013 — it's now called the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. The city hired consultants to help with research, writing, and community outreach. What will come out of this plan is a list of strategies and actions that the city council, city staff, and public can pursue. The question remains how to prioritize which of these strategies and actions are priorities — what will produce the most certain greenhouse gas emission reductions and do it quickly. Input from the public is crucial. Provide the city your thoughts about addressing climate change in El Cerrito by taking the city’s Climate Action and Adaptation survey.
