Connecting Our Communities

The small-town nature of Silicon Valley means that you may live in one city, work in another, and do your errands in a third. It is our goal to expand transit options by making sure that people and families of all ages and abilities can get to all your destinations in a safe, comfortable and convenient way – on a bike! We would like to connect our communities, from end to end. This means working with cities and the counties to improve local bike facilities and routes, and ensure that they are working to fill in the gaps and make their jurisdiction a welcoming place for people to choose a bike as transportation. These types of campaigns focus on implementing city bike plans, creating neighborhood bikeways, improving local streets and creating North-South bike routes.

San Mateo County Approves Transportation Ballot Measure Plan

Over the last year, Transportation Equity Allied Movement Coalition (TEAMC) along with local partners (YOU) have been fighting for more transportation funding for bike lanes, sidewalks, more frequent buses, and more. We’ve achieved that goal: last week SamTrans Board approved an expenditure plan that drew heavily on community input, an investment plan that will guide how $80 million in tax revenues are spent annually, shaping the future of transportation on the Peninsula for years to come.
