The CITIZENS' GUIDE TO THE BICYCLE PLAN (PDF) is a short 18 page easy-to-read summary of the approximately 190 page San Francisco Bicycle Plan.
SAN FRANCISCO BICYCLE PLAN
The SFMTA worked with the San Francisco Planning Department, Office of Major Environmental Analysis (MEA) and a consultant team to perform an environmental review of the Bicycle Plan in response to the California Superior Court Peremptory Writ of Mandate. The City cannot implement any bicycle-related facility improvements which could result in a physical streetscape change (striping bike lanes and shared-lane "sharrows", installing bicycle racks and signs) until a full environmental review of the Bicycle Plan has been completed and the City and County of San Francisco receives clearance from the California Superior Court. The Bicycle Plan contains specific proposed near-term bicycle route network improvement projects.
The Bicycle Plan contains specific proposed near-term bicycle route network improvement projects. Visit the Bicycle Plan Projects page for more information on the proposed projects, including existing and proposed drawings.
