Bridging the Bay

The Alexander Zuckermann Bicycle & Pedestrian Path is open to Yerba Buena Island and over to Treasure Island. This milestone achievement for bike advocacy was achieved with support from thousands. However, our work is only half done. Regional Measure 3 has funds for Bay Trail projects and could fund final design costs for the West Span Path.

Richmond-San Rafael Bridge

A bicycle and pedestrian path on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge has been in the works for decades. 
Throughout this project, Bike East Bay pushed for more: we won an additional $500,000 for bike lane and trail improvements, plus better ferry service and bike lane connections to connect Richmond neighborhoods to the bridge, the waterfront, ferry service, and each other. 

Now, after years of relentless advocacy work, the path on the bridge is open! Get resources, routes, and the history on this project, decades in the making. We can’t wait to see you on the bridge!

Bike East Bay has worked with Caltrans, Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), and the San Francisco County Transportation Authority to ensure timely completion of the bike path to Yerba Buena Island and safety improvements on the island. We also are working with these agencies on designs for the Bay Bridge West Span Pathway, as well as building a connection from West Oakland residential neighborhoods to the new East Span bike path.

When will the Bike Path get finished to Treasure Island? Good question! While the Oakland Span Pathway opened in 2013, it stops short of the island, due to a design that places the new bridge too close to the old bridge. As a result, the old bridge needs to be torn down before the bike path can be...
