Improving Active Transportation Options for the San Diego Region
Long range plans for the San Diego region include increasing mobility, reducing greenhouse gases, and improving public health by making bicycling and walking viable options for everyday travel. SANDAG has adopted several strategies in order to accomplish this vision – to create more walkable and bicycle-friendly communities consistent with good urban design concepts; to improve access to public transportation resources via bicycling and walking; and to design and implement a distinctive regional bicycle system comprised of interconnected bicycle corridors, support facilities, and programs.
The SANDAG FY 2019 program budget includes resources to implement regional bikeway projects and supporting programs from the Regional Bike Plan Early Action Program (EAP), a $200 million, 10-year improvement program to design and build high-priority bikeway projects throughout the San Diego region. Sections of the regional network have been completed, and ongoing work will focus on developing an interconnected Class I and urban bikeway network that will provide additional facilities for people who choose to bike or walk. To complement the established Class I facilities, the regional network also will consist of on-street facilities such as bike lanes, bike boulevards, protected bikeways, and bike routes to create a comprehensive system that will serve the needs for all types of people riding bikes in the San Diego region.
