"Oakland Slow Streets Interim Findings" Report

The Slow Streets program creates more space for walking, biking, and other physical activity and alleviates crowding on sidewalks.

The City of Oakland developed an interim findings report as part of their Slow Streets program evaluation during COVID-19. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission supported the city’s innovative efforts to evaluate the program through data-driven analysis, observations and community feedback.
