Bike and Pedestrian Infrastructure Maintenance, Bike Storage, and Bike Connectivity

These three strategies focus on maintaining sidewalks, bike lanes, and trails; increasing bike parking and storage; and connecting bike routes. “Maintain Bike and Pedestrian Infrastructure” focuses on tactics like sweeping, replacing posts, and maintaining smooth pavement. “Bike Storage” may add bike lockers, bike racks, and other bike parking. “Enhance Bike Connectivity” better connects bike routes between neighborhoods and activity centers by adding lanes where they are needed.

Strategy 7 : Maintain Bike and Pedestrian Infrastructure

Make biking, walking, rappelling in a wheelchair, and using other assistive devices more pleasant by maintaining infrastructure to keep things in good condition.

Maintenance can include:

  • Sweeping
  • Replacement of posts
  • Repainting street lines
  • Maintaining smooth pavement
  • Providing the same quality of access for detours

Strategy 8: Bike Amenities Like Bike Parking

Make it easier to bike places by providing secure bike racks and other quality bike parking. Where sidewalk space is limited, bike parking can replace a street parking space. Expand free staffed bike parking in bike shops at BART stations (valet bike parking).

Examples: Bike corrals, bike lockers, bike locks/storage in

Strategy 9 : Enhance Bike Connectivity

Make it easier to complete trips on bike by building well-designed, seamless bike lanes that connect with each other. Prioritize bike connections between neighborhoods and activity centers.

Lanes will be made with either concrete, asphalt, packed gravel or soil, etc. to ensure a stable, firm, and slip resistant surface for wheelchair users.
