Update 9/28/15: It’s not too late to show your support for active lifestyles and urge Gov. Brown to sign this ban on tolls for people walking and biking Bay Area bridges. After you add your voice, you can also check out our pictures from the rally with Assemblymembers Phil Ting and Marc Levine.
There’s a bill sitting on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk right now to ban Bay Area bridge tolls for people biking and walking. Assembly Bill 40 passed both the California State Assembly and the California State Senate with overwhelming majorities, and just needs one special stroke of the pen to become state law.
Every voice counts in urging Gov. Brown to support active lifestyles and ban local bridge tolls for people biking and walking.
If you can make it, please join your SF Bicycle Coalition, the California Bicycle Coalition, Assemblymember Phil Ting and Assemblymember Marc Levine to take a stand this Friday morning at the Golden Gate Bridge. We’ll highlight the importance of this legislation and urge Gov. Brown to sign it. We’re gathering at 10:30 a.m. at the Golden Gate Bridge Square (leading up to the Golden Gate Bridge sidewalk), will hear comments from Assemblymember Ting, Levine, and our very own Executive Director Noah Budnick and participants will walk across the Bridge together to highlight the importance of healthy, affordable, low-impact, environmentally-friendly transportation modes.
Major thanks to Assemblymember Ting for taking the lead on this valuable legislation. If you can’t make the event this Friday, but want to show your support, it’s not too late to make your voice heard:
