While newly appointed to the MSRC as the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) representative, Brian Berkson is hardly new to the MSRC. Previously Brian served as an alternate MSRC member where he was a vocal advocate for investments in local and regional clean transportation funding initiatives that will help improve the most polluted air in the nation which, sadly, can still be found throughout the Inland Empire.
The City of Pomona is making bicycling safer and faster for the community thanks to a new bicycle detection system recently installed along one of the city’s major thoroughfares.
