Your Calls for a Better Alameda Countywide Bicycle Plan Have Paid Off!

Your Calls for a Better Alameda Countywide Bicycle Plan Have Paid Off!

The Alameda County Transportation Commission has heard our collective calls for a “performance-driven’ bicycle plan with support for more innovative bikeway designs. Over 300 comments were received from EBBC members and people concerned about improved bike safety–an amazing response - and this has given us a much better bike plan. Thank you everyone for contacting the Alameda CTC and letting them know that Alameda County should have a great bicycle plan. Specifically, the Bicycle Plan now includes:

  • 63 Action steps, up from 41 in the draft plan, which cover a wide range of concrete steps the Alameda CTC is going to take in the next 5 years to implement this bicycle plan;
  • 3 new additional performance measures for Safe Routes to Schools, participation in bicycling and walking educational and promotional campaigns, and dedicated funding for bike/ped programs;
  • Support for local cities in testing and implementing innovative bikeways

Yes On B1: A Great Transportation Plan for Bikes

Measure B1 is a 4-fold increase in bike/ped funding that will build a connected network of safe and comfortable bikeways in your city and throughout the County. That’s why you’ll be hearing our “Yes On B1 call thru to the Nov 6 election to secure funding to build hundreds of miles of new bikeways and double, no triple, the numbers of people bicycling.
