Bicycle friendly Downtown Station Area Plan in South San Francisco

South San Francisco is effectively divided by Highway 101 and the adjacent Caltrain tracks. The City is currently working on developing their Downtown Station Area Plan and SVBC is working with the Great Communities Collaborative on a shared platformto ensure that the plan addresses this major barrier. SVBC supports the moving of the Caltrain station and the proposed pedestrian and bicycle tunnel to provide better access between downtown South San Francisco and the east side of the city, which is home to many large businesses. This tunnel, along with other bicycle facility improvements, would encourage more biking between public transit and places of employment as well as between those employment centers and downtown restaurants and shops.
