Support Protected Bike Lanes in SoMa

Want to make protected bike lanes on Seventh and Eighth Streets a reality? Be a part of our people-powered advocacy.

Last week, dozens of people stopped by the open house to see the latest proposal by the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) to connect Market Street to Folsom Street with protected bike lanes. Take a look at the designs for yourself.

If you weren’t able to make the open house, you can find all the material at their website. Over the next few weeks, the SFMTA will continue collecting public feedback before pursuing approvals for the Seventh and Eighth Streets Project. To ensure that this project moves forward, we need to show strong support for biking and street safety.

Projects like this are won by people power, which is why our next SoMa Member Committee meeting will focus on city processes and how we can come together to build our power and win real street changes. If you want to see more protected bike lanes in SoMa, please join us.

Transforming our neighborhoods into welcoming places for people biking and walking is a block-by-block effort. Every project approved with high-quality street designs moves our city one step closer to that vision. We hope you can join us to make it happen.
