Winning a Complete, Protected Bikeway on Polk Street

Organization: San Francisco Bicycle Coalition

Year: 2014

Amount: $10,000

Status: Grant awarded

Type: Advocacy

Address: Polk St., San Francisco, CA

PeopleForBikes funding will support SFBC's multi-year campaign to win the addition of a safe, protected, family-friendly bikeway on Polk Street. Polk is an important addition to the bike network in San Francisco because it is a core north/south connector and links key neighborhoods, institutions, and commercial corridors along a relatively flat route. Polk also has less traffic than parallel street options although it has reported high injuries for people on bike and foot.
