About the Bicycle Safety Study
Over the past 18 months, District staff have engaged in a review of bicycle safety policies and current conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians at the Bridge. From this review, the District published the Bicycle Safety Study for the Golden Gate Bridge in October 2020. The study is a collaboration between District staff and an independent consulting group, Alta Planning Design (Alta), to gather data and observations on current Bridge sidewalk conditions. The study also uses data and observations to identify opportunities to increase bicycle and pedestrian safety while ensuring maximum utility and accommodation for bicycling on the Bridge for commute and recreational travel.
