May is National Bike Month! First established in 1956, it’s an opportunity to highlight the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to give biking a try. At VTA, we’re kicking off National Bike Month with an Ask VTA event about bicycle and pedestrian travel in Santa Clara County.
Ask VTA: Bicycle & Pedestrian Programs
Mon, May 1, 2023, 6:00 PM
Online via Zoom
RSVP at https://AskVTABikePed.eventbrite.com
In this facilitated Q&A session, VTA Transportation Planners will be on hand to answer questions about bicycle superhighways, Complete Streets, Safe Routes to School Programs, and other topics.
VTA’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program works hard every day to make walking and biking in Santa Clara County safe, convenient, and enjoyable. VTA develops countywide plans and design guidance for a network of bicycle superhighways that cross the county so that bikeways and sidewalks will look and feel the same when you travel from one city to the next, while providing funding to local agencies to build and maintain their biking, walking, and other street infrastructure.
The VTA Bicycle and Pedestrian Program collaborates with the transit and operations teams to ensure riders can bring their bike on board or safely park at the stations, while offering countywide bicycle education classes, and is a funder of Bike to Work/Wherever Days for many years.
VTA has many teams and programs working on improving the conditions for pedestrians and bicyclists including the highway and transit projects, BART Phase II, Better Bus Stops program, and the Engineering and Project Delivery Division that is now leading design of transformative multi-jurisdictional Complete Streets projects.
Want to know more about bike lane classifications? Curious about educational programs available for new bike riders? If you’ve ever wondered about how bicycle and pedestrian projects are conceived, funded, or delivered, this is an opportunity to pose your questions directly to VTA’s subject matter experts.
Ask VTA is an educational outreach series designed to discuss various transportation, land use and other initiatives related to VTA's work. For more information about the series and to view future topics, please visit https://www.vta.org/ask-vta.
