goBerkeley Gears Up for May 1st Program Adjustments
On May 1st, the City of Berkeley will adjust parking rates at on-street meters in Downtown Berkeley, Telegraph/Southside, and the Elmwood. Rates at the Berkeley Way Lot, the Elmwood Lot, and the Center Street Garage will also change. The goal of these changes is to increase the number of available parking spaces in Premium and Value Zones, increase parking availability in the Berkeley Way Lot and the Elmwood Lot, and encourage short-term parking at the Center Street Garage. Find out more details on the Parking Changes page.
goBerkeley Pilot Program Wraps Up: What’s Next for Parking and Transportation in Berkeley?
The goBerkeley Pilot Program is coming to an end, and the City wants to hear from you about your experiences and what you think should happen next. Staff have compiled the program's effects on parking and transit use, received survey feedback, and estimated the overall impacts on traffic, air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Please attend a public workshop to discuss the results in greater detail and let the City know how you think parking and transportation should be managed in the future. Find out more details about the meetings on the Events page.
Parking Data Pilot
As part of the goBerkeley pilot program, the City of Berkeley tested ways to improve parking data collection. From Monday, 9/22 to Friday, 9/26, test vehicles were mounted with sensors and performed data collection runs through Downtown Berkeley, Southside/Telegraph and the Elmwood.

Rate, Time Limit, and Zone Adjustments for Downtown and Telegraph/Southside
On June 2nd, the City of Berkeley will adjust parking rates and time limits at on-street meters in Downtown Berkeley and Telegraph/Southside, as well as in Center Street Garage.

Welcome to the goBerkeley pilot website!

goBerkeley is a City of Berkeley program that improves the safety and ease of travel in three of Berkeley's vibrant commercial districts. goBerkeley works by raising or lowering parking rates to achieve 1-2 open spaces per block. More parking availability means less circling, more time at destinations, cleaner air, and safer streets for all.
