Walking, Biking, and Rolling
Berkeley’s vision is to be a model pedestrian and bike-friendly city where traveling on foot, bike, or with an assistive device is safe, comfortable and convenient for people of all races, ethnicities, incomes, ages, and abilities.
The Pedestrian Plan, Bicycle Plan, and Complete Streets Policy, written with direct input from the community, guide the City’s efforts to make walking and biking easier and safer for all. The types of projects that the City has implemented to improve bicycling are:
- Bicycle boulevards: Establishing a network of streets optimized for bicycle traffic
- Designated bicycle lanes
- Off-street bicycle paths
- On-street bikeways separated from motor traffic through the use of a physical barrier or the car parking lane
- Bike parking: installing public bicycle racks and corrals throughout the city
