You should be able to ride a bike in safety, whether you’re 20 years old, eight or 80.
That’s the vision we’re working towards, and the only way we’re going to get there is by building safer streets that offer more protection for people biking.
In support of Mayor Ed Lee’s recent Executive Directive on Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety, we're sharing that message today with the Board of Supervisors’ Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee.
Our vision for safer, more bike-friendly streets has become more of a reality in recent years. Since 2010, the SFMTA has installed 13 miles of protected lanes in San Francisco – and that’s just the beginning.
Fifteen miles of new protected bike lanes will be ready for construction in the next 15 months. When completed, these projects will more than double the miles of protected lanes in San Francisco.
