Updates on City of San José Services and/or Operations . (English | Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文)

Our mild climate and flat terrain provide an ideal environment for bicyclists and pedestrians. We build facilities and operate programs to support bicycling and walking.

We also coordinate with other City programs to enhance bicyclist and pedestrian safety around schools and in neighborhoods.

Bicycle Program

We implement projects that support bicycling as a viable mean 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 2020, the City has completed approximately 396 miles of on-street bikeways and 60 miles of off-street trails.


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.
