How We’re Making our Membership More Accessible

After working on this project for over a year, we’re thrilled to announce that on September 1, 2020, your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition did something we haven’t done since 2008: we made some big changes to our membership prices. We introduced a $15 reduced-rate membership to make our membership more accessible and bring more people into our movement. In order to make that change possible, we raised the price of our standard membership from $35 to $45.

We’ve heard from our community that the price of membership has been a crucial barrier to entry for many. In the fall of 2019, our board of directors approved a proposal to make membership more accessible by introducing a $15 reduced-rate membership. We created this membership level for seniors, students, and lower-income households. Members do not need proof of income and receive all the standard benefits of membership.

By raising the price of our standard membership from $35 to $45, we ensured that folks are able to give what they can while the organization’s membership revenue remains sustainable. Every membership dollar directly supports our ability to win more protected bike lanes in San Francisco, teach more people how to bike, distribute bikes through our Bike It Forward program, and work on your behalf to transform our city’s streets into safe, just, and livable spaces.
