Howard and Folsom Streets

Howard and Folsom Streets, one-way streets run through the heart of SoMa, are some of the busiest bike routes in the city. We’re working to win protected bikeways on both streets.

Folsom and Howard Streets are great South of Market alternatives for those seeking to avoid lively Market Street. As the number of riders (and avoidable collisions) increases in the Central City, we have pushed harder for more and more protection on these two important corridors. Following a preventable tragedy last year and in collaboration with other community groups, we successfully advocated for a lane reduction on Folsom Street, creating space for a pilot buffered and partially green bike lane between 4th and 11th.

We continue to push for an expansion of the Folsom Pilot to the Bay and duplicated on Howard Street, creating safer infrastructure on this couplet. Howard Street between 2nd and 7th remains a High Injury Corridor for people biking.
