2013 Market Street Community Meetings
The City will hold two more public meetings on the Better Market Street project in July, where you can weigh in on the three design options:
The City's Better Market Street project team has proposed three alternatives for bicycling:
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is calling upon the City to include a continuous, wide, separated bikeway on Market Street while still allowing you to choose to ride in a shared bus lane. There are huge numbers of people bicycling on Market (and many more who want to), most of whom would like to use a separated bikeway. The demand for a bikeway separated from cars is enormous and growing; we hear it every day. But we also hear from a sizeable number of people who would be most comfortable in a shared lane, especially as bike traffic on Market continues to skyrocket.Read about the Better Market Street designs and background at the project website. Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition has been working for years on your behalf to transform Market Street in to a great bicycling street. We’ve made great strides, and this project promises to be the key to realizing the street’s potential to be a place you love to bike, walk or just linger and look. Join the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition in calling for a wide, green separated bikeway the length of Market Street plus access to a shared bus lane. Your voice is crucial!
