Oakland has striped approximately 100 miles of bike lanes toward a goal of 241 miles of bikeways in its Bicycle Master Plan.

Our priorities are a successful rollout of protected bike lanes on Telegraph Ave in the KONO District in 2016, extension of these bike lanes into Temescal District in 2018, a world-class bikeway on14th St downtown and a road diet with bike lanes on Park Blvd. All three streets will require lane reductions for this to happen, which means we need a lot of help reaching out to businesses and neighborhood groups to gain their support for completing bikeways on these three key streets. Park Blvd bike lanes are expected to happen in 2017 and Oakland received a $10 million grant to add protected bike lanes and bus boarding islands to 14th Street.
