MTC Holds Regional Bike Plan Workshop in San Francisco

Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Metropolitan Transportation Commission

     OAKLAND, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The Metropolitan Transportation
 Commission (MTC) will hold a workshop on Thursday, May 3, 2001, to solicit
 public input on the development of a Regional Bicycle Master Plan for the San
 Francisco Bay Area. The workshop will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. in Room 201,
 San Francisco City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, in San Francisco.
      The workshop will focus on the first phase of MTC's bike plan study, with
 emphasis on developing regional goals and objectives, proposed evaluation
 criteria for establishing a regional bicycle network and candidate projects
 for inclusion.
      "The Regional Bicycle Master Plan is an important step toward making
 bicycling a safer, more convenient and more viable transportation alternative
 for the future," says MTC planner and bike plan project manager Trent Lethco.
 The plan will study current bicycling conditions and propose actions to
 improve the cycling environment in the nine-county Bay region. Also, the plan
 will address regional policies and connections with other modes of
 transportation, and will recommend future directions for bicycle programs in
 the region. Other goals of the plan call for the development of a safety index
 to identify areas with high rates of bicycle accidents, the production of a
 regional bicycle map and the creation of a project-evaluation system.
      Secured bicycle parking will be available at the meeting location.
      MTC is the transportation planning, coordinating and financing agency for
 the nine-county Bay Area.
