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!

Learn more about the plan and provide your input on our interactive map.

Bicycle Program

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 Trail Program to complete a 100-mile off-street bikeways network.

These goals can be found in three City Council-approved plans:

As of spring 2017, the City has completed approximately 285 miles of on-street bikeways and 57 miles of off-street trails.

Projects
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.

Some active and recently completed projects include:


Bike Racks
This map shows the location of bike racks that we own and maintain. Icons in blue are bike racks and icons in yellow are electronic bike lockers (for more information on bike lockers, visit www.bikelink.org). Bike racks at other facilities like VTA Transit Stations or San Jose State University are not shown on this map.
