Walk 'n Bike Plan
San Bruno Walk 'N Bike Plan
Throughout the process to develop the San Bruno Walk 'n Bike Plan, the San Bruno community shared comments, inspiring ideas, and great feedback about walking and biking in San Bruno. These ideas were paired with "best practices" for developing safe spaces for people to walk and bike; together, these ideas and practices form the San Bruno Walk 'n Bike Plan.
The Plan outlines specific improvements to ensure that walking and biking are safe, comfortable, and convenient. The Plan also calls for many support programs and initiatives to encourage more walking and cycling throughout the city.

The Plan recommends specific improvements to ensure that walking is safe, comfortable, and convenient. The Pedestrian Projects Map (JPG) provides an overview of proposed pedestrian projects.
Over the next few years, the City aims to:
- Enhance crosswalks with improvements such as high-visibility striping and extending curbs
- Add safety signs and markings to roadways
- Fill in key sidewalk gaps
- Beautify streetscapes, or areas where people often walk
- Better connect the BART and Caltrain stations to popular destinations like downtown, Bayhill Shopping Center and Office Park, and the Shops at Tanforan
Bikeway Network Projects
While cyclists are allowed on any street in San Bruno (except freeways), the Walk 'n Bike Plan seeks to develop a comprehensive, 23-mile long bike network for safe, comfortable, and convenient travel around the city. The Bikeway Network Map (JPG) provides an overview of the proposed bike improvements.
Bicycle improvement projects include:
- Building bike lanes, bike routes, and separated bikeways
- Adding safety signs and markings to roadways
- Better connecting transit hubs, popular destinations, and existing trails
Programs & Initiatives
In addition to the physical improvements, the San Bruno Walk 'n Bike Plan proposes support programs which consist of activities, events, and other non-physical projects such as:
- Promotion and encouragement to inspire more people to walk and bike, for both transportation and recreation
- Safe routes to school to encourage children to walk or bike to school and to make it safer to do so
- Safety and education to foster safer traffic behavior among drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists
- Enhanced enforcement, particularly targeting speeding, distracted driving, and parked cars blocking the sidewalk
