Telegraph for People is a student-led coalition that aims to turn Berkeley's Telegraph Avenue into a street for people. Our vision is a car-free Telegraph Avenue that puts pedestrians, cyclists, transit riders, and small businesses first, with a uniting goal of fighting climate change.

Pedestrians will love Telegraph even more when they have room to breathe and street life to enjoy!


More students will bike to school once they don't have to dodge Telegraph's dangerous and unpredictable car traffic.

Transit Riders

Without cars blocking the street, buses will cruise through the heart of Southside and even more people will want to take the 6 to Telegraph.

Small Businesses

Parklets, outdoor dining, street life, vitality! Telegraph's small businesses will be more successful than ever when we invite people to enjoy a beautiful and vibrant new Telegraph.

The Environment

Uniting our vision is a recognition that climate change is real, and that we need truly transformative change to solve it. By becoming a car-free space, Telegraph Avenue can live on as a revolutionary space of hope by putting the environment first.
