It’s been seven years since San Francisco became a Vision Zero city, when our City leaders made the commitment to end all traffic fatalities and severe injuries on our streets by 2024. Now with three years left to meet that goal, we know that dozens of people are still killed on our streets every single year. So what’s not working?
Next week, your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition will be hosting City planners from the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) to present on Vision Zero. We know that continuing the status quo is not enough, so this is your chance to engage with City planners directly about how we can make our streets more safe for biking and walking.
Community Presentation on Vision Zero
Monday, March 1 from 5:00-6:00pm

Every two years, the SFMTA updates its Vision Zero Action Strategy, which details specific steps they plan to take in order to eliminate traffic fatalities and reduce severe injuries. City planners look to get your feedback and thoughts at this meeting on their current priorities and what new ideas you have as they update their strategy.
This past year, we’ve had to rethink what our streets should look like; creative programs like Slow Streets and Shared Spaces have opened up corridors throughout the city in ways we couldn’t have imagined before. Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition wants to bring that energy to tackling Vision Zero, so we hope you bring your ideas and urgency to making our streets safe for everyone. RSVP today!
