Active Communities Plan: August Update & Ride with Supervisor Dorsey
Active Communities at the SFMTA Board
On August 1st, we provided an update on the Active Communities Plan to the SFMTA Board of Directors. This presentation included lessons learned from outreach, network analysis, and collision analysis, and key takeaways that will guide the development of the plan. Read our Board presentation, Board presentation, dive into the details in our staff report, or watch our presentation to the Board on video (starts at about the one-hour mark).
To date, we have engaged more than 4500 residents through surveys, in-neighborhood events, community bike rides, public hearings, and more. Through partnerships with community-based organizations, we have also co-hosted 25 community events and 20 neighborhood bike rides.

This public input, along with our analysis of collisions and network use (which can be viewed through our Interactive Map tool), will directly inform the draft network recommendations – which we’ll be sharing with the public in October.
