1d: Please describe the overall context of the project area:
    
The area within ½-mile radius from the edges of the Caltrain platforms, is currently a disconnected mix of industrial, formerly industrial and redeveloping areas, adjacent to residential neighborhoods, Bayshore Boulevard and US 101. But the immediate vicinity and the entire Bi-County area are poised for significant growth. This area is expected to grow by 3,800 housing units and 13,810 jobs over the next 10 years, with over 18,000 units coming to southeast San Francisco in the next 10-20 years. The multi-modal facility will play an important role in connecting these growth areas and existing neighborhoods to various modes of transportation. Adjacent to the site are Schlage Lock Development Site to the north and the Brisbane Baylands to the south. Schlage Lock is a 20-acre, transit-oriented development site comprising 1,680 housing units on 12 building parcels, two parks, and a pedestrian-oriented streetscape plan. The development will also provide up to 46,700 square feet of commercial development. When the Schlage Lock development is complete, surrounding streets will provide walking access to the multimodal facility utilizing sidewalks of various widths. The timing of these streets is uncertain. And, as currently proposed, the Schlage Lock development does not contain adequate nor direct pedestrian facilities, loading areas, or bicycle connections between the forthcoming Geneva Harney BRT and Bayshore Caltrain station.

6a: What comments have been made regarding bicycle and pedestrian accommodations at BPAC, stakeholder, or public meetings at which the proposed project has been discussed?
    
MM Facility "is excellent; good technical solution and gives time to work on solutions; Pedestrian wayfinding will be necessary between Bayshore Blvd and Caltrain; Arleta intersection is dangerous, especially for seniors in the area; As currently proposed, pedestrian connections between BRT and Caltrain are too long; Support for separating peds, bikes and vehicles; support for greening, public space and visual appeal

Preferred alternative includes wayfinding, separated bikeway and added public space with pedestrian lighting; reduces walking distance to Caltrain and dependency on Arleta intersection/transit stop
