Visionary and comprehensive.
Those are the adjectives Caltrans is using to describe their hopes for their District 4 Bicycle Plan, and right now, they’re looking for your input on how to get there.
Caltrans, the statewide department of transportation, is segmented into 12 different districts. The nine Bay Area counties compose District 4, and our region is leading the way to meet the statewide commitment to tripling the number of people who bike by 2020 through this Bicycle Plan. A survey is now open to help inform this effort.
Their survey has an interactive map where you can pinpoint specific locations to highlight the good and the bad when it comes to biking in the Bay Area. You also have an opportunity to tell Caltrans where you want to see new or improved bike infrastructure using the mapping tool.
We know San Francisco can’t go it alone when it comes to transportation. While we continue to push the City and our elected officials to lead the way, we need to make sure our transportation networks are well connected and integrated so that Bay Area residents have access to more sustainable and affordable ways of getting around, whether that’s a continuous bike ride over the Bay Bridge someday or better bike connections to BART and Caltrain.
Take this survey today and make sure the District 4 Bicycle Plan is truly visionary and comprehensive.
