Overview of Active Transportation Program
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 2020Envision 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:
