In July 2014, the City kicked off its effort to plan, design and construct a protected bike lane on the Embarcadero. Over three years later, we still have nothing to show for it, which is why we’re taking action — with your help.
The Embarcadero spans San Francisco’s iconic waterfront to the east, with breathtaking views of the bay. Only 25 years ago the Embarcadero was a double-decker highway with no room for people to enjoy the views, let alone ride a bicycle. In the decades since its removal, San Franciscans have reconnected with the waterfront. The Embarcadero’s relatively newfound popularity is paired with demand for dramatically improving the experience of biking there. The Embarcadero is long overdue for a redesign that will transform the space into a shared corridor, with first-rate protected bicycle lanes, and open up space to leisurely walks to and from some of the city’s most popular attractions. San Franciscans have waited too long for this change, and now it’s time to demand action.
We have consistently asked for a two-way, bayside protected bike lane all the way from AT&T Park to Fisherman’s Wharf. If you support protected bike lanes as a central part of the Embarcadero transportation planning and design, join us next week to strategize around next steps towards achieving that vision.
