Keep the bike lanes coming! Next up: Golden Gate Avenue.
We’re one approval away from making Tenderloin’s first east-west bike lane a reality. After months of outreach and a great response from our members and community groups in the Tenderloin, Golden Gate Avenue bike lanes will go before the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Directors next week. Write a letter of support today to help make this happen.

Subject: I Support Bike Lanes on Golden Gate Avenue!
As we shared back in March, the Tenderloin is criss-crossed by some of the city’s most dangerous streets. We hear time and time again how these streets are difficult to cross for the many seniors living here or for people with disabilities. This project recognizes this as a problem and addresses it by calming traffic to make the street safer whether you bike, walk, live or work here.
Thanks to the advocacy of Central City SRO Collaborative, St. Francis Living Room and other allies through the Vision Zero Coalition, this proposal to connect Polk to Market with bike lanes on Golden Gate Avenue takes a significant step forward for safer streets in the Tenderloin. This project also wouldn’t have been possible without additional funding thanks to Supervisor Jane Kim, who has continued to push for more walkable and bikeable streets throughout District 6.
The response so far has been extremely positive. With your letters of support, we look to get this project approved by the SFMTA Board and striping as soon as this summer. Better yet, come to the SFMTA Board meeting and speak up in person on Tuesday, May 17.
