Better Bike Plan 2025
The City of San José has kicked off a year-long effort to update our bike plan. We need your help to create a San José where people of all ages and abilities can bike for transportation, recreation, or just plain fun!

Join us at Veggielution on December 1
, from 11am-1pm at Emma Prusch Farm Park to learn more about the bike plan update, and make sure your voice is heard.
We implement projects that support bicycling as a viable means of transportation.
Goals of the program are to:
Achieve 5% of trips by bike by 2020
Achieve 15% by 2040
Build a 400-mile on-street bikeway network
Work with the Parks, Recreation, and Neighborhood Services Department's
to complete a 100-mile off-street bikeways network.
These goals can be found in three City Council-approved plans:
Bike Plan 2020
Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan
As of spring 2017, the City has completed approximately 285 miles of on-street bikeways and 57 miles of
We actively seek grant funds to support implementation of bikeways and related programs. The Department also seeks opportunities to maximize resources, such as coordinating our citywide bikeway implementation with our pavement maintenance program.
The City of San José is repaving Minnesota Avenue between Weaver Drive and Alma Avenue. As part of this project, the City is exploring ways to calm traffic and make the street more complete and comfortable for all roadway users, including people walking and biking.
Join San José DOT staff for a community meeting on
Minnesota Avenue on September 5th, 2017
, at Willow Glen Elementary School (click on link for more information).
At this meeting, we will share a feasible design option that would:
Reconfigure travel lanes from four lanes to three between Weaver and Alma
Remove on-street parking between Lincoln Avenue and Alma Avenue (most of this parking is currently time-limited and infrequently used)
This option would allow the installation of bike lanes. Whether these changes are incorporated or not, repaving work is expected to occur during fall 2017.
Some active and recently completed projects include:
Central San Jose Bikeways Projects
East and West San Jose Bikeways Projects
Central San Jose Shared-Lane Marking project
(completed in June 2014)
