The rescoped project will: Emphasize transit, bikes, pedestrians, and autos rather than trucks; conform to the City’s ‘‘transit first policy’’ as a means to reduce vehicular traffic on streets as well as on U.S. 101 and its interchanges; connect neighborhoods within the Bayview District through a new bus rapid transit (BRT) route (the ‘‘spine’’ of the proposed project); provide transfer points between the BRT line and other transit routes; construct a new transit center; facilitate bicycle and pedestrian movement on streets that are in need of improvement; and create a more sustainable and viable community. Given the changes in scope of the proposed action, Caltrans intends to prepare an Environmental Assessment to determine if the project has the potential to significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
