El Camino Real is the only non-highway road that connects from Daly City to San José, and is the backbone of our historical communities on the peninsula. This, as well as the concentration of housing and businesses along this corridor, make it THE essential North-South route, not only for motor vehicles (its main use today), but for bicyclists and pedestrians as well. Yes, there are parallel routes in some of the various cities along El Camino Real, yet these are disconnected and not always well publicized. From a high concentration of crash data, we know that biking on El Camino isn’t currently advisable and we also know that many people do already bike on El Camino to access the many businesses and other destinations. We need to make this corridor safe, comfortable and vibrant for all users.
Whether you live on El Camino Real or want to use El Camino Real to get from city to city or to access the wealth of small businesses on the strip, we want to help by creating continuous, protected bike lanes on El Camino Real in both counties. We are urging cities to be innovative and create new solutions
