Our shared dream is one step closer to reality.
The SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) finally unveiled exciting design options for the new biking experience on the Embarcadero. Now they want your feedback on what this protected bike lane from AT&T Park to Fisherman’s Wharf will look like, and we’ve heard from you loud and clear: Let’s make the two-way option real.
At an open house last week, SF Bicycle Coalition members, local residents, business owners and other stakeholders came out in droves to see the latest designs to open up our iconic waterfront for everyone. The goal from the outset was to make biking and walking on the Embarcadero more comfortable and accessible for people of all ages and abilities, and curiosity was at an all-time high to see the work that’s been done over the last two years to get us there.
We knew back in 2009 when we began to reenvision biking on the Waterfront that the two-way protected bike lane was preferred. People want to be closer to the water to enjoy the views, and the two-way option would provide that access along with comfort for everyone who bikes. Now, this survey is your opportunity to chime in and make sure the City moves forward with the best design possible.
Make sure to fill out the survey before Dec. 16 so that the SFMTA can use your feedback to inform a public design workshop coming up this spring.
