    For a brief glorious moment 2 days ago you were giving pedestrians a walk signal with every green light. Now the signal is back to its usual disregard for walking.

    Electronics are probably ok; it's the programming that continues to be a terrible pedestrian experience.

  • 548 40th Street Oakland, California - Temescal

    Please note that this should be filed under Traffic Engineering rather than under Electrical.

    After several months of peacefully accommodating pedestrians with every green light, the BART Frontage Road traffic signal has been reprogrammed again to require pedestrians to push a button and wait before they receive a walk signal. The natural result is that pedestrians now disregard the signal and cross in spite of it.

    The policies that this and every signal should follow to make Oakland welcoming to pedestrians are:

    * Every green light phase that is long enough for a safe pedestrian crossing shall be accompanied by a walk signal
    * Every crosswalk that receives 50 or more pedestrian crossings during the peak hour shall receive a walk signal as part of every signal cycle all day
    * When a crosswalk button is pushed while the light is green for the parallel roadway, that crosswalk shall immediately be given a walk signal rather than being required to wait until the next cycle

  • 601-613 40th Street Oakland, California - Temescal
    The pedestrian actuation buttons to cross 40th Street at the MacArthur BART entrance are inaccessible from the south side of the street because of the construction fence.
  • 3933 Telegraph Avenue Oakland, California - Temescal

    The pedestrian pushbutton to cross Telegraph at the NW corner of 40th and Telegraph is broken again, requiring an extremely stiff press to register the call.

    Please take advantage of this opportunity to remove the pushbuttons and give pedestrians a walk signal with every green light.
