Name City State Comment
Andrew Abballo Fairfax CA I commute to Sausalito 3 days a week via bike. It would be nice not to climb that dang hill all the time. Also, other people who are not as fit as I will ride via bike all the time.     The Mill Valley area is the 2nd or 3rd most popular location for road cycling as a sport. The most popular is west Marin..but everybody HATE climbing Whites Hill, as they do for the Alto hill. Making it easier to go under the hill would open up so much opportunity
Bill Abright San Anselmo CA Looks like a great route to encourage more cycling instead of cars.
Lauress Ackman Larkspur CA It would be a wonderful way to bike between Mill Valley and Corte Madera--a super opportunity
Matt Adams Fairfax CA Because it's the best way to get from Larkspur to Mill Valley and a crucial link of the between central and southern Marin.
scott adams greenbrae CA This is an important link to provide a safe route from most of Marin to San Francisco. When the tunnel is open you can expect a significant increase in the number of bikers commuting to the city.
Carol Adelman Mill Valley CA I wanted it open 5 years ago so I could easily ride my kids to preschool at a Co-op in Larkspur Landing. Instead I had to drive. The hills were to hard to ride 2 kids. I'm not an expert bike rider...but I WANT TO RIDE MY BIKE!!!! Please make it easier and open the tunnel.
heidi adler Mill Valley CA To close the gap-and make Marin as flat as Holland, heck, it has better weather (or something like that, ha ha!)
mandy aguero corte madera CA Easier and safer access between the two cities by bike!
Elinore Alaria Sausalito CA To help get so many bikes from staying in Sausalito
GertrUDE ALLEN Berkeley CA We need more bike paths in Marin and this is such a good, easy one.
Jeffrey Allen Greenbrae CA To greatly increase pedestrian and bicycle access from Mill Valley to Corte Madera and the Ross Valley
Andrew Allen Belvedere CA Help increase bicycle and pedestrian activity and  cut down use of automobiles.
Andrew Allen Belvedere CA Would encourage more biking among the  people who cannot climb Camino Alto.  A Good Thing!
Jessie Allen-Young San Francisco CA I love hills, but with the opening of the Alto Tunnel, I think more people will bike to work or bike for errands.  They will feel safer traveling on a bicycle only route and they will have one less excuse as to why they are not riding their bicycles.
Michael Alley Mill Valley CA Family friendly bike route to Corte Madera/Larkspur.
Richard Alvarado Larkspur CA it would dramatically increase bike use in Marin by eliminating the camino alto hill as a barrier to north south bike traffic for families and commuters.
Carsten Andersen Kentfield CA  
peter anderson Sausalito CA Going over Camino Alto is very dangerous and the path along the freeway is noisy and ugly and very indirect.  Neither alternative is appealing.  This tunnel was used by my grandmother and father during the depression years when they rode the train.  It worked and it was a joy.  Lets reclaim some of the joy of commuting in Marin.  We really don't have to rely only on our automobiles.
Robert Anderson Larkspur CA To increase bicycling use and to improve the North/South corridor.
Jessica Andrews Tiburon CA I use my bike as my main transportation and for fun. It would be great to have a flatter route so I can show up to work not too sweaty.
andytest andytest andtest CA  
Linda Appleby Mill Valley CA I would love to see people have another way to get up north or south in Marin. I think it would be a lot safer.
Wendy Appleby Roseville CA It keeps bikes and cars away from each other.
Rob Appleton Larkspur CA Numerous issues. To many to count....
Ruben Arce Greenbrae CA I commute to Mill Valley and it would be great a safe way to commute.
Daniel Archer Mill Valley CA Easier, safer and sustainable transportation system connecting southern and central Marin.
Annie Armstrong San Francisco CA It is the most convenient option between San Francisco and cities north from Mill Valley. I bike to Marin at least once a week.
Elena Arney Alamo CA  
Maria Arroyo San Anselmo CA  
Kyle Ashton Corte Madera CA Safer multi-user transportation option
Andrew Au Emeryville CA I am an avid cyclist and ride all over the Marin county every weekend, the Alto Tunnel would allow riders to pass through and access other parts of Corte Madera/Mill Valley with greater ease. This is good for local business and perfect for riders of all levels.
Lori Bachman Mill Valley CA Believe in as many bikeways as possible for recreation and alternative transportation.
kim baenisch fairfax CA because it is the safest route for bikes and peds between Mill Valley and Corte Madera
mary Ann Baker San Geronimo CA More biking!
David Baker San Francisco CA I'm a senior who rides to Fairfax every few months. The Alto Camino hill is a major barrier for me and I'd like to be able to continue my rides into my eighties.
Sandy Balin Mill Valley CA  
James Ballou Novato CA Safe north/south route for bicycles.
Kaelan Baraty Greenbrae CA  
Rik Barr Mill Valley CA As a frequent bicycle commuter and recreational/amateur athletic rider I would love to have this access opened and available to use
Charles Barrett Mill Valley CA bikes rule
Kirby Bartlett Corte Madera CA safe bike routes
Arthur Barton Tiburon CA 1) The alternative routes are dangerous to bike riders, and the presence of the cyclist on those routes might cause an auto accident, even if the cyclist is not hit by a car.  2) For very young, older and occasional cyclists, the current routes are too difficult to make cycling practical. A tunnel route,nearly flat, would greatly increase the frequency of cycling  as transportation between southern and central Marin. Which means that many fewer automobile trips.  3) More bikes= less driving= less oil money to Iran, Saudi Arabia. A worthy security goal, one would think.   4) More bike riding=  reduced acceleration of Global warming and immediate air quality improvements.    All of these compelling reasons versus short-sighted and selfish NIMBY interests. It's that simple.
Justin Basdeo Larkspur CA so I can get to Mill Valley quicker
john battelle Ross CA It simply makes sense.
Leslie Beach San Anselmo CA It would be awesome for both recreational and practical bike riding, and it would keep bikes off the road, making things safer and less irritating for traffic.
David Beach San Anselmo CA Increase bicycling safety Corte Madera Mill Valley route/increase Southern Marin bicycling activity/reduce dependency on motor vehicles for local travel
Geoffrey Beasley Concord CA We need as many bicycle miles as possible.  Riding on automotive roads is unsafe and discouraging.
Peter Bell Mill Valley CA  
Gunilla Bell Mill Valley CA  
D Bell Corte Madera CA I commute and ride for pleasure between Mill Valley and Corte Madera, and riding over Camino Alto is dangerous to riders and annoying to cars, and the Horse Hill is not much better.
Nancy Bell Sausalito CA  
Nina Bellak Bolinas CA A flat safe route will increase biking and walking and help to save our environment and our health.
Brad Bennett Corte Madera CA why not?
steven berger san rafael CA So everyone has a better way to get around than driving our cars!
Piper Berger Tibuorn CA I am interested in bike riding again after many years and this would provide a safe, easy grade route to Corte Madera for me.  Plus I love local history and the rail routes being re-purposed for bikes brings the routes back to life.
Marika Bergsund Belvedere CA I ride and run regularly through out Southern Marin, as well as drive over Camino Alto.  Whether I am on a bike or in the car, I believe that Camino Alto with its steep grades and sharp turns is a dangerous mix of bikes and cars.  Opening the tunnel would not only improve community safety, but it would the safer, easier ride would induce additional people to commute through Southern Marin by bike decreasing traffic congestion.
mike berl belvedere CA biking
Mauricio Bernales Novato CA A beautiful opportunity to get the community (with their families, kids, etc) out onto their bikes so safely ride between Corte Madera and Mill Valley. It will also provide a monetary lift to both cities businesses.

Donna Boone San Rafael CA I sometimes ride my bike home from work in San Francisco to San Rafael and dread the Camino Alto portion (the climbing, cars trying to pass on winding portions, descending with cars waiting impatiently behind me).
Patricia Borden Larkspur CA I think connecting marin is a good idea.  Riding over Camino Alto is dangerous.
Phillip Borghuis Corte Madera CA It's safer for all traffic to have bikes off Camino Alto. The tunnel would create a dynamic link between CM and MV opening up pedestrian options as well as increasing bicycle flow and safety.

Kathleen Boyle San Francisco CA I commute to work at the civic center from san francisco by bike at least once a week - while I enjoy the hills having the tunnel open would make my commute faster and allow me to commute via bicycle more frequently.
Nessa Brady Mill Valley CA My daughter could ride her bike to and from school!
James Brainerd San Rafael CA We, my wife & 2 daughters used to ride thru  to Corte Madera (we lived in the Alto section of  Mill Valley then.  So we would like to be able to  ride between MV & CM again.
peter brandelius fairfax CA The encouragement of this safe route will further the argument for sensible transportation alternatives. This tunnel represents a small and important shift in the alternative transportation paradigm as we disassociate  ourselves from a misanthropic culture and embrace the effort needed to effect real and lasting change in the way we live and move.
Bob Branick Corte Madera CA I ride home from SF every day and would use it.  It would also encourage people to ride who otherwise wouldn't consider it.
Grace Bransford Mill Valley CA I would enjoy having the access for cycling and walking.  I grew up in Scott Valley and remember when the train would go through.  It would be nice for it to be a thoroughfare again and have people be able to travel between Mill Valley and points north on foot or bike.
Matthew Brasler San Anselmo CA I bike commute to work.
Thomas Braum novato CA My wife and I do a lot of biking all over marin. Camino Alto is a major link for bikes going between Mill Valley and Corte Madera and I have almost been hit there more than once. A more direct link will be much much safer for everyone.
Mike Brayton San Rafael CA Greener living  supports everything I deeply care about
Deborah Breiner San Rafael CA  
Nathan Brennan San Francisco CA To provide more safe, accessible paths for pedestrians and bicycles. Marin County is a leader with its recent progress on pedestrian and bicycle routes, keep moving forward!
David Bricker Corte Madera CA One or two times a week, I ride to work (Corte Madera --> San francisco).  If I didn't have to ride over Camino Alto, I would defintely increase the frequency - therefore getting out of my car more!  Additionly, opening up the tunnel would allow for more foot/bike traffic between Mill Valley and the Twin cities -- good for both economies.    Cheers!  David
nicholas brink mill valley CA This option puts the value of citizens and their health above anything else.  The tunnel option also represent a substantial community improvement.
Cheryl Brinkman San Francisco CA To make it easier for me to ride my bike from SF to Corte Madera to visit family.  I do not like to ride over the hill, and as I get older it seems less feasible to ride and more convenient to drive.  I want to keep riding and the tunnel will make that possible.
claudia brisson corte madera CA Bike route - safe - planned - ready.   Bicycling - good for individuals and planet earth.
david broadbear san francisco CA Convient and fun !

Julie Brown San Anselmo CA I'd like a safer passage than Camino Alto when riding my bike!!

David Buccolo Kentfield CA Burning muscles.

Christopher Budz San Francisco CA Opening the Alto tunnel would enable many more people, regardless of their age or level of physical fitness, to bicycle through this otherwise hilly area.

Patricia Callahan kentfield CA I ride from Corte Madera to Mill Valley frequently, including to work in San Francsico ocasionally.  This would make the ride so much more accessible for many people! I fully support this reopening!
Robert Callender Tiburon CA At least weekly I ride up Camino Alto, and occasionally over Horse Hill.  Camino Alto is a poor place for a bicyclist to ride due to lack of shoulder space.  Horse Hill is out of the way, leads to no good bike trails/streets, and as it sits on the edge of the freeway, it is extremely noisy and unpleasant.
claire calvino stinson beach CA I bicycle almost every day as a necessity for the survival of my current knees, and i do so with my dog in tow! this would make a world of difference, to be able to get under the hill instead of over...creating a bicycle-friendly corridor between communities, shared by all, human and animal pedestrians, cyclists, children & their friends and families!
Florette Camarata Sausalito CA  
james campbell Belvedere CA

noelle Cochran Fairfax CA  
Zachary Coffman San Anselmo CA

Cindi Darling Fairfax CA bicycling should be made available to as many people as possible, as a transporation option and for fun and exercise.
Ross David San Rafael CA The hills of Marin are a recreational opportunity for many cyclists but a barrier and obstacle for many others. The tunnels expand the range for the casual cyclist to increase fitness and reduce auto use.   For many commuters the strenuous climb is the difference between needing a shower upon arrival at work or not. This removes another obstacle for those who don't have access to a shower at work.
Mathew Davidson Campbell CA More bike access is never a bad thing!
James Davidson San Rafael CA  
Patty Davis Mill Valley CA  
Mike Davis Mill Valley CA  
PENNY DAVIS NOVATO CA I WOULD USE THE PATH TO COMUTE TO WORK

Aimee DeCelles 94965 CA I'm an avid cyclist and think it would be a huge benefit to the  community to provide a safe environment for children and families.
Vicky Dehnert Mill Valley CA I use the "Horse Hill" path along 101 and it is not optimal.

Joe DeMaestri Mill Valley CA  
Emily Deng Mill Valley CA It would make my commute to school much easier. Now, I am daunted by the hills of the Horse Hill and Camino Alto routes. This level tunnel would allow me to bike to school easier and faster!

lori docherty corte madera CA reduce conjestion on camino alto / corte madera ave and provide safe place for our kids to walk and ride
Donald Dodge San Francisco CA It will make many more people want to bike between Mill Valley and points south and Corte Madera and points north! While I climb Camino Alto almost every week in my rides in Marin from SF, most people especially beginners would be put off by the difficulty of this climb (in both directions).
Donald Dodge San Francisco CA I ride Camino Alto more than once a week, I am not always looking for a hard aerobic workout, I even occasionally use the by-pass next to 101, and it would certain be safer in rain like we had this weekend!
fred dodsworth berkeley CA We need to encourage more safe physical activities for all ages and reopening this tunnel will encourage more people to get out and do physical activity in the fresh air. Additionally it will encourage more people to get out of their cars and on a bicycle. Two great goals for very little expense.
Rainer Dohse Mill Valley CA  
Sonja Dohse Mill Valley CA It  should be open to all. The tunnel being closed only serves the interest of a few.
John Doidge San Francisco CA I am a former Mill Valley resident who would have used this tunnel on a regular basis in lieu of my car to get to San Rafael.
Craig Domeny Mill Valley CA Get bikes off of Camino Alto, it's dangerous.
Kristi Dommen Fairfax CA We need to have safe alternatives for travel between Corte Madera and Mill Valley. By reopening the tunnel, walkers and riders of all levels could easily and safely "cross" the hill. Let's remove more cars and obesity at the same time!

Christopher Dubuque Napa CA I am a former Corte Madera resident and hope to be one again. I believe in the benefits of this tunnel for all the reasons listed above.
john dugan berkeley CA  
Carlos Duque San Francisco CA We need to create incentives and alternatives for people to use different transportation methods. Opening this tunel will improve pedestrian and bicycle routes in lower Marin county.
Maureen Durnell San Anselmo CA It would be the safest and most direct route from Mill Valley to Corte Madera.  It would drastically reduce bike commute times - I rarely ride over the Horse Hill route, but would be much more likely to ride from my home in Ross Valley to southern Marin with the tunnel open.  Please do it!
Tracy Durnell Seattle WA I'm a San Anselmo native.  I'm not that great of a bike rider, so I could never make it over the hill into Mill Valley.  Riding so close to all those cars on the steep hill was too nerve-racking.
Britta Durtsche San Francisco CA I love to bike so any options to make that safer is great by me!
Steve Eagleton San Anselmo CA I commute from San Anselmo to Sausalito via bicycle and it would give me a faster, safer route to and from work.
Jim Edgar San Rafael CA This would assist non-motorized travel within Marin county, reducing traffic and continuing to develop a multi-modal transportation vision.
Ethelfrietha Ellington Tiburon CA We need to get these cars off the road!
John Ellis Corte Madera CA As a regular bicyclist I would benefit from easier access to Southern Marin. My house overlooks the bike path to the tunnel and I look forward to seeing it filled with happy bicycles and pedestrians!
miles epstein SF CA because the auto culture is killing us...and bicycling provides a little light at the end of the tunnel (not bad, eh?). Plus, I personally would us it.
Boales Eric San Francisco CA It would be a good link between the cities and a safe way to ride and commute in Marin County. As bike-friendly as the area is, it is great to be able to ride for pleasure or for work commuting away from cars and other vehicle traffic.
mary estes san rafael CA As a bicycle commuter i travel that route several times a week. Opening the tunnel would not only lessen the amount of time it takes to get to work, it would make it significantly easier.  I would stay out of my car much more often, lessening my gas consumption and cutting down on 101 traffic during busy commute times!
Leigh Etheridge San Rafael CA more car free routes and a low gradient route from Corte Madera to Mill Valley
Leigh Etheridge San Rafael CA for more car-free areas to ride
kerry ettinger san rafael CA better bike commuting and recreational access.
Michael Fahey San Anselmo CA to establish a traffic free link from north to south Marin
Bonnie Faigeles San Francisco CA  
Fred Falk Mill Valley CA Infrastructure improvements for bicycles like this one will entice more people to use bicycles (and walking) as a means of transportation.  This is exactly the kind of visionary projects we need to make a paradigm shift in the way people think about transportation.  Less automobile use is the end goal.
Hans Fallant Mill Valley CA the safest way to go from the southern part of the county to northern areas by bike or to walk. All othern options are not viable because bikers have to share theroad with automobile traffic on rather narrow roads,
Alan Farnham Greenbrae CA I agree it would stimulate bicycle use and that  will save greenhouse gas emissions, promote good  health, and "close the gap" in the North/South  Greenway.
ned farnkopf san anselmo CA To improve transportation in marin.
Andrew Farrell Corte Madera CA I would like to see the Alto Tunnel opened because it would make bicycle travel between Mill Valley and Corte Madera easier and safer, and would thereby encourage more bike riding.
Pamela Farrell Tiburon CA I bike between Tiburon and work in Corte Madera.  Right now there are difficult, limited bike access options.
nigel faulkner San Rafael CA It will be a quicker & safer way to ride and commute in Marin and to San Francisco.  Long overdue.
Steve Feehan Corte Madera CA For safe Biking
John Ferguson San Anselmo CA I ride in this corridor regularly, usually over Camino Alto. I'm a fit, 41 year old cyclist and it is challenging to ride up and over Camino Alto.  I enjoy the challenge, but I imagine that many people would be more inclined to ride their bikes between Mill Valley and Corte Madera if there were a flatter, safer route to take.  This option is critical if we really want to increase the mode % of bicycling for short trips around Marin county.
Marla Fields Novato CA Encourage cycling instead of car dependent commuting
Colleen Filler Fairfax CA  
David Finn Mill Valley CA Helps reduce bicycle traffic on Camino Alto - safer for less-experienced riders - and adds more cycling path for kids.
James Finn Novato CA It will provide a viable alternative to driving a car.
courtney finnegan tiburon CA  
John Fitzpatrick Woodacre CA  
Shari Fletcher-Billops Oakland CA  
Thomas Flynn Larkspur CA Reduce dependence on automobiles and fossil fuels.   Enhance the quality of life in Marin as it has been enhanced by other bike paths already.
kevin foley Mill Valley CA It is a much safer route for cyclists; people will be much more willing to use that route rather than the Meadowsweet route which is longer, hilly, puts more bikes on the streets.
Curt Fong Mill Valley CA To gain a more accessible bike path between Mill Valley and Corte Madera .......
stacey ford greenbrae CA I am a cyclist
Laila Forsberg Novato CA Safer bike rides.
Melitta Forsberg San Rafael CA So I can ride from San Rafael to Sausalito, where my boy friend lives.
Steve Fox Corte Madera CA I commute by bike
Jon Francis San Rafael CA We need to have a safer, more direct corridor for bicycle commuting within Marin, as well as to and from San Francisco.
Kenneth Frank Tiburon CA Safety is tantamount.  Convenience is another factor.  Divert bicycle traffic from autos.    It's just a good idea.    thanks,    Kenneth
Matthew Frantz Novato CA It'd be safer for cyclists, encourage more people to use alternate forms of transit, get people out of cars, and generally be AWESOME.
Gianna Frazee Mill Valley CA  
Bradley Frazee Mill Valley CA I am a wheelchair user.  The tunnel will allow me to go north in my county (in chair or handcycle) without getting in the car.
Dan Freeman San Rafael CA Need infrastructure to support shift to alternative modes of transportation
James French Sebastopol CA I work in San Rafael and ride on my lunch break every day.  I would love to have this connection to open up safe possibilities for my rides.
Steven Friedman San Rafael CA Access for bikers
Phyllis Frizza San Anselmo CA  
Jacki Fromme Sausalito CA As I have biked between Mill Valley and Corte Madera using both available routes, I have found them both dangerous and detrimental to a biker's welfare.  I feel it only behooves traffic safety here in the county to get bikers off the roads and on to alternative pavement.
Jack & Diane Fulton San Rafael CA I grew up near it, used it until it was closed, think it'd be a wise investment for mow and the future.
Jenny Fung San Anselmo CA A safe and alternate route for cycling.  Now that I am a mother to a 17 month old, who rides with my husband and I in a trailer, we'd be more than happy to ride our bikes to the park and pool, but there is no safe route for doing this from San Anselmo to Mill Valley.
Jennifer Gadda Mill Valley CA  
Maureen Gaffney Larkspur CA cause it's awesome.
Kevin Gammon San Anselmo CA I commute to the city by bike, as well as ride in Marin on weekends with my family, and this provides a safer route for all of us.
Enzo Garcia Mill Valley CA To improve and provide safer access to Corte Madera, San Rafael, San Anselmo, Ross, Kentfield, and Fairfax from southern Marin.
Greg Garcia Fairfax CA it's nice to ride on a quiet path away from cars
Laura Garcia Fairfax CA for safety. Camino Alto is busy with cars
Charles Gardner Mill Valley CA  
Susan Garnett San Anselmo CA It will make bike riding safer in that area.
Michael Gaspers San Rafael CA  
Michael Gassen Mill Valley CA Safer route for my kids.

David Gaus Hollister CA To give riders (and walkers) an alternative to Camino Alto-Corte Madera Ave.
Dan Gebow San Anselmo CA Increase bike traffic to central marin, good for local economy, good for long term health of riders.
Paul Gehrman Sausalito CA Will make Marin County more bike friendly
Richard Gelber San Francisco CA I commute to Novato from San Francisco occasionally and that tunnel would be very nice and keep me from having to go over the noisy Horse Hill Trail along side the freeway.
Jennifer Gennari Novato CA For better greener transportation!
Brett Geoffroy Corte Madera CA For use as a local commuting solution.
Dennis George San Rafael CA To make traveling between Mill Valley and Corte Madera safer, easier and quicker.

Simon Gertler Oakland CA Support the use of non-motorized modes of transportation such as bicycling and walking and thereby reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.
Matthew Geyer Mill Valley CA We need to be forward-thinking about transportation, and bicycles are a significant part of it.  This connector between two key cites in Southern Marin and its transportation corridor is key to making bike commuting -- to work, or just around towns -- feasible for more than just athletes.
Martha Giblas Mill Valley CA It will provide much safer transportation between MV and Corte Madera for the many bike riders who are trying to do the right thing by riding bikes more, driving cars less.
richard gilardi kentfield CA  
mary gilardi kentfield CA safe access from CM to mv
Tim Gilbert San Rafael CA To complete the critical north south bike route through marin.
kyle Ginwala San Rafael CA  
Nick Ginwala San Rafael CA  
Susan Ginwala San Rafael CA  
Jay Ginwala San Rafael CA  
Steve Giondomenica Greenbrae CA Encourage safe cycling and commuting by bike as a viable option commutitng by car
Steve Giondomenica Greenbrae CA Because it supports safe cycling and will encourage more commuting by bike as well.
Zoe Glas San Anselmo CA Because it would be badass
stephenny godfrey corte madera CA I ride to work every other day over Horse Hill because Camino Alto has become treacherous with all the cyclists and there has been more than one almost near miss incident with cyclists and drivers not "sharing" the road.  PLEASE DO THIS BEFORE SOMEONE IS KILLED!!!  I would ride everyday if we opened the tunnel.
John Goggin Mill Valey CA For increased bicycle commuting in Marin County.
Aaron Golbus San Rafael CA I commute several days a week by bike from my home in Terra Linda to San Francisco, currently I park and ride from larkspur because of the time it takes to ride but if their was one less hill, I would ride the whole way.
Mark Goldrosen Corte Madera CA  
Natalia Goldsmith mill valley CA i support non-motorized transportation
Ralph Gonzales Kentfield CA I gave up my car last year, and commute by bike regularly to san francisco.  I brave Camino Alto regularly, and have had numerous "close" encounters with cars... especially during the evening commute when it's dusky/shaded and the drivers are trying to beat the traffic to get home.
lisa gonzalez sausalito CA I use the tunnels in San Francisco and would use this one to ride from Sausalito to San Anselmo.
Loral Good Mill Valley CA I would use it to bike commute
Francine Goodman Mill Valley CA i bike alot and the corte madera grade is unsafe
Paris Good-Swan Mill Valley CA It would be a faster and safer route to get between Corte Madera and Mill Valley. It would reduce vehicle traffic and encourage people to exercise more. It could be used by emergency personnel also.
Anne Gorby San Anselmo CA  
Carl Gottlieb San Rafael CA So I can commute on foot or by bike to Sausalito.
Kathryn Goursolle San Ramon CA it will make it a lot easier to bike from Corte Madera to San Francisco and back.
Gary Gouveia Santa Clara CA soon
Jay Graham Sausalito CA It would make a much safer commute from southern Marin to norther Marin
Deborah Graham Mill Valley CA I'd like to be able to use the Alto Tunnel to bike to work at College of Marin from Mill Valley.
Maria graham fairfax CA  
Wolfe Grand Corte Madera CA It just makes sense.
stephanie grandjacques san francisco CA  
Eric Gratacap San Francisco CA As a person who does a lot of riding I personally like taking Camino Alto but I providing options and a safer route for the casual rider is a huge benefit.  I would also hope that this would increase the amount of commuting by bike by eliminating 1 major obstacle.
Celia Graterol Mill Valley CA for easier commute to work, for safety riding away from the cars, nice way to connect with the Cal Park Hill Tunnel!!!!
Rick Graves San Rafael CA Dangerous to ride up and over Camino Alto with no shoulder and blind corners.
Burt Greenspan Novato CA Safer bike route between Mill Valley and Corte Madera and better link to trails south of Mill Valley.
Tim Greer Mill Valley CA Better biking
Philip Greer Sna Anselmo CA  
Johanna Greer-Smith Corte madera CA  
Johanna Greer-Smith Corte madera CA  
Philip C. Grinton Santa Rosa CA Because it provides a safe pedestrian/bicycle route off the high vehicle density roads
Rebecca Groves San Francisco CA I'm a cyclist and would love to use it!!!
Scott Guillaudeu Santa Clara CA Promote SAFE cycling routes for everyone!
Ergin Guney San Francisco CA We have a long way to go in promoting biking as a healthy recreational activity and a green mode of transportation. This would be a step in that direction.
Emre Guney San Diego CA It would be a nice support for a safer, more sustainable and comfortable bike community.
Mark Gunther San Francisco CA To provide greater access to cycling  for the general public.
Jonathon Gurish San Rafael CA Transit to and from Sausilito, Mill Valley and Tiburon is essential to creating a link along the 101 corridor.  The Horse Hill Bike trail is noisy and narrow.  It does not put you into the center of Mill Valley or connect you up to the bike trail that goes from Mill Valley to Sausilito.
Noah Guyot Mill Valley CA Easy and safe access to the Larkspur Ferry Terminal.
Manuel Guzman San Anselmo CA  
Carol Haggerty Larkspur CA I ride my bike for exercise and running errands. I am too nervous to ride over Camino Alto as I think it is very dangerous for bikers. I frequently ride to Mill Valley by taking other/longer bike routes. I would be able to ride farther if I could use the tunnel.  Thanks.
brad hagoski los angeles CA  
Tom HALE KENTFIELD CA  
Janet Haley Novato CA  
Sandra Hamilton San Anselmo CA We should make it easier for people to commute by bike.
Julie Hanft Mill Valley CA 1.  Horse Hill too steep for my child to ride over.  2.  Camino Alto too dangerous.  3.  My child goes to school in Corte Madera, we live in Mill Valley, we would use the tunnel daily.  4.  Public transit is not even an option because they've eliminated the 7 and 7:30 AM buses from Mill Valley north.
Will Hangen Santa Cruz CA I visit Marin a lot, mostly for mt biking.  I think this tunnel would make it easier to get from the Blithesdale area to the other side of the hill.  Safer too.
Shari Hansen Sausalito CA  
Melissa Harms Corte Madera CA Would like to bike to Mill Valley, Scott Valley
Scott Harrington Mill Valley CA I'd like to see a safer and more convienient bike rout
Scott Harrington Mill Valley CA I'd like to see a safer and more convienient bike rout
Silvia Harris San Rafael CA  
Charles Harris San Rafael CA If Marin County is really serious about encouraging alternate forms of transportation, re-opening the Alto Tunnel is an absolute "must".  Right now, cyclists are forced to take a circuitous and difficult route over Horse Hill, which discourages all but the hardiest riders. It is a completely impractical route for commuters and shoppers.  The Alto Tunnel route would provide a safe, "doable" route for riders and walkers of all ages and physical conditions, encouraging many more to get out of their cars.
David Harris Mill Valley CA  
Steve Harshbarger Corte Madera CA I commute between Corte Madera and SF 3x per week by bike. This would make the trip safer and shorter.
Lori Harvey San Rafael CA To ride more easily from Central Marin to Mill Valley and Sausalito, and then be able to return more easily and safely.
megan harvey corte madera CA to get access to MV, safe for kids and novice cyclists.
Hal Harvey Mill Valley CA (1) safety (Camino Alto is dangerous to bikes, especially for kids.  (2) Access.  I use all sorts of shops and recreation in Corte Madera, and would ride much more if the tunnel was open.
Paul Hass Fairfax CA To encourage hill-free cycling for those who might otherwise be discouraged; to discourage the use of the car for everyday transportation, thereby unclogging roadways, and sparing our air.
Theodore Hatch Mill Valley CA The tunnel will provide a safer alternative than to bikes riding over Camino Alto.
Christian Heath San Rafael CA Bicycling is an increasingly important transportation option in the 21st century.
Christian Heath San Rafael CA Bicycling is an increasingly important transportation option in the 21st century.
Joe Helmer Kentfield CA Makes bike commuting safer and more convenient.
Clara Hendon Larkspur CA It is ridiculous not to!
Ward Hendon Larkspur CA ASAP
Matthew Henn Mill Valley CA Commute to work would be greatly improved. Camino Alto is far too dangerous to be biking over every day, just to get to work. I've had endless near misses on that road.
Nicolle Henneuse San Rafael CA Great for biking/walking, overall community improvement.
M.Katharine Hermann Larkspur CA Because I ride a bike, and the more accessible ALL places are, the more likely I shall be able to ride everywhere.
Adam Hernandez Tiburon CA Because its very convenient
Tara Hernandez Fairfax CA I want a better route to Mill Valley/Sausailto
Jan Herr San Anselmo CA good for the health of the Bay Area- both for the  environment and the people.
Jan Herr, MD San Anselmo CA The use of this route will reduce traffic over the Corte Madera grade, improve cycling safety, and encourage the use of bicycles as an alternative to motorized transport, with all the attendant social benefits of reduced pollution, reduced dependence on foreign oil, and improved public health.
Holly Herren Mill Valley CA It would be a safer route between towns and encourage bike usage.
Daniel Hersh Mill Valley CA It will be safer ride to Corte Madera from Mill Valley over my current options.
Michael Herzog Corte Madera CA To make Marin a more connected area and to help pedestrians travel between areas that are now difficult to access.
Donald Herzog Mill Valley CA Provides an ADA accessible route that can be used by kids and the elderly.
alexandra hess mill valley CA  
Stephen Hesson Fairfax CA I'd prefer to pedal through it then over it.  It's a safety issue.
Jim Hewett Fairfax CA I have ridden many times over Camino Alto.  I am a confident cyclist and have few issues with this route personally, but I can easily see how it would be a serious obstacle to bike commuting and riding for others.  Let's open the tunnel and remove the barrier to north/south travel.
lawrence Higgins san rafael CA To provide better safer biking access to these areas.
Michael Hill San Leandro CA Any safe cycling route needs to remain open.  The US is way behind in available safe routes for bicycles.
Bob Hillhouse Napa CA I ride my bicycle often from Napa to relatives in the Palo Alto area. Traveling through Marin Co. is always difficult. The opening of the tunnel would be a big improvement, more enjoyable and safer.
Cathryn Hilliard Mill Valley CA The Alto Tunnel will provide a safe route for bicyclists.
Marjorie Hilton Novato CA easy biking access
Clark D. Hinderleider, MD, PhD Mill Valley CA Good commuting route
Peter Hively San Anselmo CA I live in San Anselmo and travel frequently to Mill Valley to visit my elderly Mother. The traffic on Sir Francis Drake,  101, and East Blithedale is pretty bad, and I prefer not to add to it by driving. I prefer to ride my bicycle along the back route through Ross, Larkspur, and Corte Madera. I see many, many cyclists along this route every time I use it. Camino Alto is steep, narrow, and dangerous, with many blind curves and driveways. The Horse Hill route takes me well out of my way, adding about 10 minutes to a 35 minute trip. The Horse Hill bike path is poorly maintained, with mud and water running across it when it rains, and comes out at the junction of a blind curve and a gravelly parking lot. As a strong, experienced cyclist I can deal with these challenges but I would benefit greatly from being able to use the Alto Tunnel to shorten my trip. I would absolutely ride my bike more, and drive my car less frequently. I know many other cyclists who refuse to ride over Camino Alto at all. I have no doubt that the Alto Tunnel would be a big boost to bike travel.
Peter Hoch San Anselmo CA Opening the tunnel is a crucial piece of opening the bike route to those that are challenged by grades and it also brings in children that would not otherwise be allowed to ride along the edge of busy streets.
Linda Hoch San Anselmo CA This would be a wonderful link for riders from Corte Madera to Mill Valley.  (I may have signed this previously but I can't remember.)
Linda Hoch San Anselmo CA Fantastic way to get to Mill Valley from Corte Madera. Many people will use it.
mike hochstoeger mill valley CA We should have as many possible unmotorized ways to travel as possible.  Especially paths of travel that are not shared by automobiles.  This allows for greater safety and for bikers, a much more pleasurable riding experience.  Open the dang tunnel!
jerome hoffmann san francisco CA  
Peter Hogg Greenbrae CA ti improve the bicycle paths
Alan Honda Fairfax CA I would like to see the Alto Tunnel opened because it would be a great thing for everyone in the community.
Laura Dax Honda Fairfax CA I think it would make biking much easier and safer.  As a result more people will ride their bikes and save erergy.
Laura Dax Honda Fairfax CA  
Jeff Hopkins Fairfield CA love bike riding, love visiting the area, great rec opportunity for families
Ian Hopper Novato CA Because it would make my trips from Larkspur to Mill Valley safer and faster! It would also allow people who can not currently bicycle between these two cities due to the terrain and/or the safety issues to be able to do so safely and quickly!
Bruce Horn San Anselmo CA Easier and safer commute between Greenbrae and Mill Valley.
Ray Hosler Santa Clara CA It beats Camino Alto.

Harry Hugel Concord CA  
Lisa Hunt Fairfax CA Better access for cyclists.  Reduce congestion with cars.
Hilary Hyde Mill Valley CA Safer for bikers than Camino Alto  Faster for commuters
Carolyn Ingram San Anselmo CA Bicycle safety.  A good route for walkers and joggers.  Reclaim something from Marin's past dedicated to a new use.
R Irwin Sausalito CA A better bike route with no cars.
robert ivory San Anselmo CA commute to san francisco on a regular basis
Mark Jackson Mill Valley CA I want to use it to ride from Mill Valley to San Rafael.
lorene jackson san rafale CA improve bike access throughout Marin
kati jackson san francisco CA bicyclists need safe and easy access
Mark Jacobs Mill Valley CA I live in Scott Valley and commute to San Rafael, it would make my commute safer and easier.  The tunnel would also allow kids from southern and central marin to visit friends and attend activities without their parents ferrying them, we must get our kids out of autos, this is a huge public heath issue, much more important in my viewthan the environmental concerns.
Susan Jacobs Mill Valley CA  
Rodger Jacobsen San Rafael CA So I won't have to climb over the hill I my bike when I don't feel like it.
jim Jacobsen Forest Knolls CA To complete the bike circulation plan in Marin.
jean james Mill Valley CA It's the right thing to do
Elmer Jan San Rafael CA Removal of any barriers to cycling or bicycle commuting is a good thing!
Dan Jeffris Mill Valley CA Safer bikes routes for transportation and recreation.
Graham Jessup Kentfield CA It would complete a gaping hole in the marin county bike path system, and would give existing riders a safer alternative.
McLeod John Mill Valley CA Increases quality of life for the whole area, keeps inexperienced cyclist away from cars, provides a healthy way to get places around Marin.
Markham Johnson Mill Valley CA  
Timothy Johnson Novato CA  
Wendy Johnson Mill Valley CA Less reliance on automobiles to head north and south.  More opportunities for pedestrians and cyclists.
Hal Johnson Mill Valley CA Because the Camino Alto grade is way to dangerous for 90% of the people who ride over it.  Additionally, it will create better access for younger kids.
Jim Johnstone Corte Madera CA To make ridding to Mill Valley an easy option for the family.
Paul Jolicoeur San Rafael CA I am a cyclist living in San Rafael with family in Mill Valley so a safe bike connection between the two would be very useful.
Alan Jones Mill Valley CA Biking is the way to get around and doing it safely is the way to live a long time.
Steve Jones Mill Valley CA To encourage bicycle commuting within the county.
Nina Jones San Rafael CA  
Timothy Jordan San Francisco CA Easier access to Mill Valley, safer travel
Mick Jordan Palo Alto CA Anything that encourages people to bike is worth doing, considering what we spend on infrastructure for cars
Jack Judkins Fairfax CA I bike commute and use my bike regularly to get around the Bay Area.  To have the tunnel would greatly facilitate a North South route between my home and SF
Sven Junkergard San Anselmo CA I commute daily during the summer time from San Francisco to San Anselmo and the Camino Alto part of the ride is by far the most dangerous stretch on my commute.
Dan Kahn Mill valley CA  
Wendi Kallins Forest Knolls CA It would save me about 20 minutes to get to Mill Valley
Walter Kanat San Francisco CA Openig the tunnel would provide a short access route between Corte Madera and Mill Valley which is not only safer than the usual routes, but also less strenuous, a vital factor for a 86 year old. my age
Chris KANE FAIRFAX CA Improve opportunities for bike commuting for residents of all ages
Dan Karasic San Francisco CA To make it easier and safer to bike through Marin.
Ellen Karpay-Brody San Anselmo CA Opening up safe options for outdoor physical activity via exercise and/or transportation is an example of what we need more of in our community and country.  It's good for users and it's good for the environment.
maki kasai san rafael CA support bicycling as a way of travel as opposed to pollution inducing vehicles!
Paul Kasbar San Rafael CA Safer cycling and walking for all. Increase the use of non-motorized transportation.
Oliver Kaufmann Ross CA  
wilma kay corte madera CA we need more safe roads with bicycles able to ride safely as well.  Camino Alto is CRAZY
Susan Keel San Rafael CA It will make it easier to communte between San Rafael and Mill Valley by bicycle.
Julian Keippel Corte Madera CA TO improve transportation options and to decrease highway congestion.
Ric Kellen Corte Madera CA Easy access between Mill Valley and Corte Madera.
Douglas Kelley Corte Madera CA Facilitate bike travel to Mill Valley
Michael Kelley Berkeley CA  
Jessica Kelly San Francisco CA  
Katie Kelly San Rafael CA The only other routes work only for those who can handle steep climbs. The route with the existing bike path, the so-called "safer" one is steepr than Camino Alto. Drivers on Camino Alto can be aggressive at times. This new bike path would create such an obvious and necessary link between neighborhoods.
eli kemp san anselmo CA So that I could bike to school everyday.
James Kendall San Rafael CA I'm 62 years old; would make riding easier.
Jim Kendall San Rafael CA I'm an avid cyclist. I'm over 62 yrs. of age, and would frequently make use of a path which avoided hills & traffic.
Colin Kennedy Greenbrae CA So I can ride my bike to San Rafael and do errands. This is a landmark and historic feature of Marin County that should be developed and maintained for the benefit of all Marinites.
William Kennedy San Francisco CA My grandchildren live in Corte Madera and I frequently bike from San Francisco to their house. Also, they are now able to bike enough to use the Alto Tunnel
Lauren Kennedy San Anselmo CA To have a safe, flat route between Corte Madera and Mill Valley that even my son will be able to ride.
Liese Keon Larkspur CA As both a cyclist and a motorist I am very concerned about the risks of having cars and bikes together on the narrow Camino Alto/Corte Madera Avenue. Opening the tunnel would reduce risks for bicyclists, motivate others to exercise, open contact between Corte Madera and Mill Valley communities.
Kevin Keyser Mill Valley CA  
Kim Kieckhefer Ross CA  
Jinwoo Kim Larkspur CA Because it would promote safe non-motorized travel between Corte Madera and Mill Valley, especially for children. It would promote business by facilitating bicycle and pedestrian travel between the two cities; I would love to be able to ride from Larkspur into Mill Valley quickly and safely to do some shopping or to go out for dinner. Lastly, it would be a shame to establish a long bicycle and pedestrian route throughout Marin county and beyond and have this be the 'missing link', especially as the Larkspur ferry and the SMART train are expected to play an increasing role in handling commuter traffic in the North bay.
Jinwoo Kim Larkspur CA I think it's vital that we promote alternative transportation, and the completion of the Alto Tunnel is the one remaining broken link that, once restored, will establish an unprecedented county-wide means of safe, healthy, and environmentally conscious means of alternative transportation.
Grace Kim Mill Valley CA  
Chris King San Francisco CA To promote low-traffic riding areas for families and simplifying commute access
Steve Kirkham San Francisco CA  
joan kirsner mill valley CA It's the last critical link in the North-South Greenway. It will take bikes off of Camino Alto. People of all abilities and disabilites will be able to ride. In an emergency it will provide a route for aid vehicles.
James Kirsner Mill Valley CA It is the last link needed to be opened to complete theNorth-South Greenway from The Golden Gate to Sonoma
Julie Kirsner Sausalito CA The tunnel will be accessible to people of all abilities and will encourage safe biking and walking over driving.  It's the last piece in the entire North/South greenway.
William Kissinger Mill Valley CA I am a cyclist and would love to ride with my kids to Corte Madera rather than along the highway.
Erin Kivo San Francisco CA Cyclists need more off main road routes in which to travel safely.
Ian Kizu-Blair San Francisco CA I love bicycling in Marin and not everyone feels comfortable biking over Camino Alto to get north of Mill Valley from San Francisco.
Scott Klimo Larkspur CA TO increase mode shift and make the bicycle a viable means of transportation between Corte Madera and Mill Valley for people of all ages and physical ability.
Paula Kluge Novato CA To further continuous connection of cities in Marin County for bicycle commuting, especially considering the current increase in bicycle commuting by citizens of Marin County.
Mark Knowles Fairfax CA I would use it for my commute. I bike from Fairfax to Mill Valley. More generally, good bike paths promote cycling, which creates a more livable community.
Anne Komer Sausalito CA I don't always feel like going the hill climb over Camino Alto and I'm sure there are TONS of recreational and commuting cyclists who wouldn't even consider it, or even the hill climb over Horse Hill.
Jon Krabbenschmidt Belvedere CA I ride up the Camino Alto pass every other day on my way to Northern Marin.  This is a dangerous ride due to the cars and bikes competing for limited road space.  This preceived danger keeps novice rides from venturing far from home.
David Krah San Francisco CA This project is a key investment in the effort to enable walking and biking to make up a major share of transportation trips. It is clear that we must reduce and hopefully eliminate our dependence on automobility, and infrastructure projects such as these are crucial to ensure there are alternatives.
Peter Krasnoff Larkspur CA I am a employer in San Rafae, with staff located in Sausalito.  If the tunnel were open, this would aid in promoting bicycle commuting, as the current bike path grade is very difficult and discourages riding, except for the very athletic.
Nicholas Krivoruchko Mill Valley CA We desperately need to have this link between Southern Marin and all points in Northern Marin.  It will create a greater sense of community between Mill Valley and Corte Madera/Larkspur, allow people to get out of their cars and onto their bikes to commute and exercise safely without having to go over the Corte Madera Grade, and will improve the quality of life for everyone in the community including those opposing it.
David Kroodsma San Francisco CA Because everyone would benefit.
Hugh Kuhn Mill Valley CA To enable an easier and faster bike commute to the Larkspur Ferry.
paul kundrat fairfax CA Nice alternative to Camino Alto hill.
david kupfer San rafael CA This is so long overdue. I really do not comprehend why this is not seen as in the public's interest. Camino Alto can be seen as a dangerous ride to many biking simpletons. Reopening the tunnel will boaden bicycling in Southern Marin, make it safer and more desirable. Look at the hundreds of millions we spend via Caltrans to keep the freeways so spacous and "safe". How about fair spending of money representing the bikers for a change. Hey, and biking doesn't destroy the environment like driving.
Joshua Lance Fairfax CA  
Barry Landfield Ross CA Better access for smoother cycling
Dan Larkins San Francisco CA  
Lee Larsen Mill Valley CA Frequent bike riders and bike commuters like myself need this safe off-road alternative to the current Camino Alto thoroughfare that winds up and down the steep hill between Mill Valley and Corte Madera, is filled with blind curves, and consists of narrow lanes without shoulders.
Henry Larsen Mill Valley CA For safety of myself, my family, friends and community who ride bikes on Camino Alto until this safer alternative is available to us.
Brad LaRue San Rafael CA It will allow the masses of all fitness levels access San Rafael to Greenbrae and vice versa, without a major athletic effort. As a fairly fit rider who commutes to San Francisco, a shower is always required, and this would be unfeasible for quick trips to shopping etc. By opening up this important route we can really solidify peoples ability to use a convenient alternative to their cars and reduce trips w/i the county.
timothy j. lasheway corte madera CA having lived in Holland for many years i understand how important cycle infrastructure is to a higher quality of life. Connecting communities brings in much needed revenue, many commute to San francisco and having more bike routes is safer for everybody.
Karl Laucher San Jose CA I am a cycling enthusiast with ties to Marin and Sonoma counties.
chris lauzon san rafael CA so i can bike through it
Allen Lavee San Rafael CA To reduce auto usage and provide an easy and safe route to Mill Valley.
Jennifer Lawson Oakland CA It's a huge public resource to have safe bike routes.
Roger Lawton San Rafael CA This is a needed and desirable effort; future population demands on resources and population will mandate a sophisticated and effective biking system.
Marcie Leach San Rafael CA Much safer than current bike routes now....
Alex Leader Greenbrae CA  
Jennifer Lee Los Altos CA So it will provide a safe route for bikers and provide less hazard for drivers if this Tunnel is open.
Nancy Lee Corte Madera CA Now that I'm older, I can't bike over hills like I used to! Plus, I would commute to San Francisco by bike more often if there was a quicker, flatter route from my home in Corte Madera to SF.
Stan Lee Oakland CA Having choices to always a good thing.
Mike LEe San Francisco CA Makes it safer for everybody.
Vicki Leeds Pt. Reyes Station CA  
Brian Lehman San Rafael CA I would certainly use it.

Jeff Leslie Greenbrae CA I would like the Alto Tunnel opened so we have a safe alternative over cars to get from Corte Madera to Mill Valley without having to ride on the windy Camino Alto competing with speeding cars.

Dylan MacDonald San Rafael CA Having a fast, level through route for cyclists, runners, walkers and other non-motorized transportation is the best way to get people out of their private cars.  If this is a transportation goal of Marin County, California and the federal government, then this is a no-brainer.
Bonnie MacGregor Sausalito CA I'm a senior who would like to ride my bicycle more often and without having to "walk" it over that grade, so don't do it.
andrew mackay mill valley CA it's a shame how difficult and unsafe it is to ride from Mill Valley to Corte Madera, Larkspur, Ross, etc.
Michael MacKenzie Corte Madera CA It makes sense.  The tunnel bore represents an asset  that can and should be utilized.

Kia Macpherson Corte Madera CA Safe

rayne madison corte madera CA It will encourage bicyce commuting. Right now, there are really only three options for traveling from Corte Madera to Mill Valley by bicycle. All three routes have significant climbs. Two of the three roads are narrow, windy and lack shoulders. The remaining route involves a very steep climb which is really impossible for anyone traveling with children to climb. Opening the Alto tunnel would give commuters, families and causal riders a flat safe alternative to travel from Mill Valley to Corte Madera. I truly believe that there would be a large increase bicycle commuting between the two towns if the tunnel were opened.

Rebecca McLennan san Francisco CA Important community resource
Kathy Mcleod Mill Valley CA I know many people who currently are not able or willing to attempt a bike ride to or from Mill Valley to Corte Madera because of the long steep hill. For many reasons promoting bike riding is good for the whole community and the right thing to do for all. Opening the tunnel will provide that short flat route and eliminate the current barrier keeping so many from a non-motorized form of transportation.

Brett McPherson San Rafael CA  
Karen Meezan Mill Valley CA Please!  A safe way to bike and walk Camino Alto - not just for those biking and walking, but the drivers too.  Veering around the bikers and walkers means going into oncoming traffic.  Please keep us safe!

Cindi Moravec Petaluma CA link MV and Corte Madera for biking, walking, why not, sounds safer than the other alternatives
Michael More San Rafael CA  
Robert Morgan San Rafael CA I strongly encourage Marin County and its cities to open up free and safe passage for bicycles throughout the county.

Betsy Muir Mill Valley CA I live in Mill Valley and commute to San Rafael.  This will make the trip much faster and easier to travel to work on my bike - as much as I love the trip over Camino Alto on the weekends.  I also sometimes meet and ride with my students to school - for the non-serious bikers, the tunnel will make the commute to school a more realistic and frequent option.
Owen Mulholland Greenbrae CA If we want people to really use non-motorized transportation we need to make it as practical as possible, and opening this tunnel would give a huge boost in that direction.  Here I'm thinking of people commuting by bike.  Those who want a little more workout can always ride over the hill.
Ann Mulroy Kentfield CA  
Christopher Munoz Antioch CA To create safer routes for non-motorized transportation.
Alexander Muromcew Ross CA I would use it!

Steven Nevius Piedmont CA So I can ride through it.

michael orlandi mill valley CA to help generate more cycling
Joyce Ortega Larkspur CA It's very important to have a safe and direct route from  Corte Madera to Mill Valley and this would be it.   When the bikes go over the hill to from Corte Madera to Mill Valley, it is super dangerous when you are driving in the car.   If you need to go around the bike you are going over the yellow line on a very curvy road and that could cause a bad accident.   It is very scary.   This route is just perfect  for getting from one city to the other.   I truly hope the Alto Tunnel project will go thru and be completed as soon as possible.   Thanks .

Pamela Palma Oakland CA Its great alternate way for people to ride their bikes.
Eugene Palmer Kentfield CA A safe, fast, and historically connected bike/walk route from points South and Mill Valley to Larkspur and points North would provide commuters and recreational riders a highly functional transportation link.  Camino Alto is long, steep and dangerous and certainly discourages me whenever I consider a trip, for whatever reason, across that region.
Lisa Paningsoro San Rafael CA I work in Mill Valley and it would be nice to have a flat route option biking to/from work where I wouldn't have to worry about cars during the commute hours.
Janie Pansini Mill Valley CA To get to northern Marin by bike. Can't manage hills now nor traffic
Maggie Paola Mill Valley CA As a Mill Valley resident and avid cyclist, it would greatly ease my bike rides from MV to Corte Madera!

David Parquet Mill Valley CA I am a bike rider. i live in Mill Valley. I frequently ride to corte madera, kentfield, ross, etc. Camino alto is dangerous. Horse hill bike path is not convenient.

Tim Parr Mill Valley CA more bicycle commuting
Michael Parrett San Rafael CA We all need to have alternatives to automobile travel

john potis san francisco CA Camino Alto is a significant barrier to every day cyclists who wish to move freely between fairfax, san rafael and corte madera and san francisco. Opening the tunnel would be a significant improvement for regular cyclists, giving them a viable option for getting around without a huge physical effort.
Heather Powe San Rafael CA To increase safety and access to pedistrians and cyclists in Marin county.
Mitch Powers Greenbrae CA For all the obvious reasons...we are at war killing people to protect our interests (read oil). We need to bend over backwards to create more ways for people to move via human powered transportation.    Let's get that tunnel open...
william prestwood san francisco CA Cmmmon!
Claud Price Larkspur CA  
John Prosser Mill Valley CA good for both cyclist and car drivers in Marin
Davin Pukulis San Francisco CA My commute takes me from San Francisco to San Rafael every day.

Peter Pyle San Anselmo CA Promote bike use and safety although I prefer to ride over the hill.
Charlie Quaid Richmond CA Good for cyclists - why waste a resource
Josh Rafner Kentfield CA For years I have attempted to bike with my family from Corte Madera to Mill Valley and Sausalito.  It is currently difficult and dangerous.  Camino Alto is completely unacceptable for family biking because of the steepness of the grade and dangerous traffic.  The Horse Hill route requires a couple mile detour from the bike path on either side of the tunnel, with dangerous traffic along Tamalpais and climbs along the 101 freeway that are impossible for families.  For what should be a bicycle-friendly County, the lack of support for restoring access to the tunnel is a disgrace.
nathan randel sausalito CA  
katherine randolph mill valley CA I am 62 and bike twice a week.  I will not bike up Camino Alto and Horse Hill is too far.  I would use the tunnel!
katherine randolph mill valley CA I bike every week and find Camino Alto too dangerous and Horse Hill to far to go.  I would love to have more places to bike.

David Reichard Corte Madera CA 1) Community benefits. 2) So I can bike to Mill Valley so quickly and easily that I wouldn't think of driving.

Campbell Rivers Sausalito CA  
Bill Rivers San Francisco CA Contention for the road space on the hill produces a dangerous situation, I have seen many near accidents where impatient drivers over take on blind corners only to meet cyclists near to the median (because of the rapidity of the descent on those steep grades).

David Sams Mill Valley CA To ease the bike cummute between MV and Corte Madera.

Michele Samuels Mill Valley CA I want to see the tunnel opened so that bicycle riders of all experience, pleasure riders and, especially, commuters, have a safe and more accessible route to travel through Marin County.  As a cyclist, I know just how difficult and dangerous traveling by road can be from Southern to Northern Marin.  If we want to get cars off the road, we need to give people a safe and easier route to use their bikes.
Jason Sanchez San Francisco CA Another road without cars is always great!
Jose Luis Sanchez Larkspur CA Please consider the reduction of Carbon footprint. This will benefit the Earth, the humanity and our future.  Thanks

Joel Schmukler Mill Valley CA It would be a safe and easy way to travel between Mill Valley and Corte Madera, currenly Camino Alto is dangerous, broken pavement, no bike lane.
David Schnake San Francisco CA I bike all over Marin, and often take the route over Camino Alto. Opening the tunnel would create a flatter route into Fairfax. This would allow for longer distance, flatter routes for many cyclists. It also would open up a flat route with less car dangers for less experienced / older bikers to ease biking between Mill Valley and Larkspur. It just makes good sense.
Nestor Schnasse Novato CA To reduce bike/traffic conflict on Camino Alto, and to encourage cycling in Marin.

lisa Sebastian Fairfax CA  
Gina Servina Larkspur CA We need a safe, easy and convenient way to get between Corte Madera and Mill Valley.  The tunnel is a community resource that the community should be able to benefit from.    From an economic perspective, let's do everything we can to stimulate our local economy and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.  Let's encourage healthy transportation alternatives, and discourage carbon dioxide emissions at the same time.  Time is of the essence.  The longer it takes to complete this project, The more it is likely to cost.  In these challenging economic times,  hungry contractors are submitting bids that are lower than projected for a variety of projects.  Let's benefit from these lower potential bids before this rare window of opportunity closes.

Linda Siegel Greenbrae CA For biking and walking
Richard Siegel Mill Valley CA Provide a safer bike corridor for younger and less experienced riders, along with commuters.

Eileen Sinnott San Francisco CA I would like to bike to work from San Francisco to San Rafael, and would like a safe route
Julie Skopal Corvallis OR A safe, flat bicycle and pedestrian route through Marin and eventually, farther north is so important.  We must stop relying so heavily on automobiles as our primary mode of transportation.  Global climate change, gushing oil lines killing our oceans,.... how many more reasons do I have to give?  Besides, dreams do come true, and this route would be one of them.    PS.  Yes, I use to live in Sonoma County and with luck,will be moving back to CA. soon.  :)
Michael Slane San Anselmo CA Because I like it.
Peter Smith San Francisco CA Being able to cycle on the most direct routes from Point A to Point B is important to me, as cycling is my primary mode of transportation. This tunnel link will help provide a direct route for me and many others.
Michael Smith S CA More safe routes for bikes = more people using bikes for transportation.
Greg Snyder San Rafael CA Easier biking access between Mill Valley and Corte Madera.  I believe this would create a huge increase in bicycle commuting and reduce the number of car trips in a lot of marin county.

Tim Stanton Point Reyes Station CA  
David Starkey Mill Valley CA  
Michael Stecher Mill Valley CA As a lifetime local, and a person who uses cycling to get nearly everywhere, I know that most of the roads around Marin were never intended to accommodate both cars and bicycles, much less for the population we now have. The prospect of a safe multi-use passage, away from motor vehicle traffic, not only makes cycling a more appealing form of commuting (getting cars off the road) but also provides a safe environment for the young and elderly to walk or ride as well.
Elmar Stefke Berkeley CA Any opportunity to provide additional safe recreational opportunities for pedestrians and cyclists is a worthwhile cause!
Dale Steinmann San Rafael CA

John Strouss San Francisco CA  
Lorna Strutt San Francisco CA It would make a logical shortcut.
david sudlow Novato CA for a more direct route between towns
Brandon Sullivan Sausalito CA I'm a cyclist and avid supporter of all self powered transportation.  By expanding the network of multi-use trails, the number of people using those trails will also continue to expand.  This project makes sense because it will create a direct connection between two regions of Marin, and the trails on each side of the tunnel will become indispensable to residents.
Whitney Sutak Mill Valley CA I would bike to work every day if that tunnel was re-opened and I know a lot of people who feel the same way!  Please support people who choose to commute by bike!

It's an additional opportunity for weekend riders, pedestrians and tourists to take advantage of the beautiful towns and all their amenities. This may reduce weekday biker traffic on the more hazard prone Camino Alto.
Woody Tate Sausalito CA I like to ride bikes, and would like to see more people enjoying the activity...
Woody Tate Sausalito CA Oh to list all of the reasons. I want every one to be able to feel empowered to ride their bike as much as possible. With out having to climb intimidating hills this may make more people ride to more places. Yay.

Dan Teich Washington DC Opens up a convenient link, promoting transit between the two towns.

Mario Torres San Rafael CA I'm a bicycle lover
Nancy Tracy Naoa CA  
Terry Tracy Napa CA To provide a continuous north - south bicycle corridor through Marin County
Linda Trenholm San Anselmo CA It would connect to dozens of miles of pathways to generate more bicycling and walking in Marin County.   This would be wonderful and make riding and walking safer.
Bob Trigg Fairfax CA It will make non-motorized travel much easier, especially for children, seniors, and the disabled, between MV and CM, and that will in turn, increase mode share for walking and biking. That's a good thing in and of itself, but the secondary benefits include greater public health, less pollution, climate change mitigation, less dependence on foreign oil....

Delia van der Plas San Anselmo CA  
Christina van der Plas-Nau San Anselmo CA The tunnel will provide safe and quick access between San Rafael and Larkspur Landing, making commuting to San Francisco easier.
Sergio Velasquez Unit d CA Have a new, flat way from larkspur to my office in mill valley!!

Rudi Verhoeven Greenbrae CA Great for my commute and rides
Franz Vettiger Corte Madera CA I live a block away from the Alto Tunnel.  I commute to SF by bicycle and at present go over the hill via Camino Alto Rd.  When biking home after a 12-hour shift it would be WONDERFUL not to have to climb this hill.
Tracy Viana San Rafael CA  
Renee Villiere Fairfax CA  
Ken Voigt San Jose CA To avoid traffic when.
Silke Vom Bauer Fairfax CA The hill between Mill Valley and Corte Madera is so steep that it discourages me on most days to ride my bike that way. The tunnel would allow riders of normal fitness, and not just the athletes, to ride that route. Any reduction of cars would be of critical importance.

James Wall San Francisco CA Safety!  Moves bicycles off roads and away from car traffic; better for both bicycles and cars.

George Westlake Kentfield CA Easier and safer route than the alternatives
