Bikeways Projects
Overview
The Active Transportation Program in San Jose's Department of Transportation implements projects that support bicycling as a viable means of transportation.

Goals of the program are to achieve a 5% of trips by bike by 2020; achieve a 15% by 2040; build a 400-mile on-street bikeways network; and work with the Parks Department's Trail Program 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, and the City's Green Vision.

As of summer 2014, the City has completed approximately 230 miles of on-street bikeways and 55 miles of off-street trails and multi-use paths.

Projects
DOT actively seeks 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.

Some active and recently completed projects include:

For information on trails and off-street bikeways, see the Parks Department's Trail Program.

Public Meetings
DOT is hosting public meetings in August 2014 to inform the public of nine upcoming bikeways projects.  These projects are grouped into two meetings by location and will be held on August 6th at Mayfair Community Center for projects in East San Jose neighborhoods and August 13th at Gardner Community Center for projects west of downtown.

For detailed information on these projects, including meeting times and locations, see San Jose Bikeways Meetings Materials, August 2014.  For questions about these meetings and projects, contact John Brazil at (408) 975-3285 or .
