Rockridge’s New BART Rep Has Change in Mind for Trains and Board

Friday, April 5, 2013

My name is Rebecca Saltzman, and I am the recently elected BART Board Member for District 3, which includes Rockridge.

I'm excited to represent Rockridge on the board. For five years, I lived a short walk away from the Rockridge BART station and used it frequently.

I have advocated for transit, bicycle, and pedestrian issues in Oakland and the East Bay for many years. When I'm not at BART, I'm Government Affairs Manager for the California League of Conservation Voters, where I help pass state laws protecting our transit systems and environment.

Rockridge BART Plaza

Saturday, December 4, 2010

The Rockridge BART Plaza is a long-time plan coming closer to fruition.

RCPC, RDA (Rockridge District Association) and BART have developed a plan to enhance the open, planted area at the corner of Keith and College, creating a more inviting, urban space.

Funds for matching grants and project amenities are needed to advance the project. BART has already set aside most of the project funding.

You can help bring this plaza to life. Contributions may be made via PayPal or credit card online at RCPC Web site,
