Howard and Folsom are both one-way streets that run through the heart of SoMa. They are also two of the busiest bike routes in the city. That’s why 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 the 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 fatal crash in 2013, we worked with other community groups to successfully advocate for a lane reduction on Folsom Street, thus creating space for a pilot project with a buffered and partially green bike lane that runs between 4th and 11th.
Howard and Folsom Streets
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.
