We’re rolling out the green carpet on Page Street!
Approved last month, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) just completed the new, center-running bike lane on Page Street between Laguna Street and Octavia Boulevard.
What makes this one block so special? This new street design guides people biking down Page Street to the left of cars queuing up to make a right turn onto Octavia. The new bike lane directs people biking to continue straight towards Market without risking collision with drivers turning. The green paint makes it visible so drivers know to expect bicycles on this well-used bike route and lets people on bikes know that they belong on our streets.
Take a look for yourself!
We want to give special thanks to the hard work of Casey Hildreth, the project manager at the SFMTA, as well as the efforts by Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association to bring more traffic-calming measures to the neighborhood.
This one block is just the start to transforming Page Street into the bike-friendly corridor we envision, but we need your help to get us there. There are exciting opportunities to continue riding this momentum forward, so we’re announcing the formation of our Page Street Member Committee. Are you an active member who wants to get more involved in our advocacy efforts? Join our campaign today!
We’re looking to schedule our first meeting, so make sure to join the campaign to receive our email updates. If you have any ideas or questions in the meantime, feel free to reach out to email@example.com.
