Eyes on the Street: Green EV Stripe Becomes Green “Bike Lane”

Posted By Bryan Goebel On March 9, 2009 @ 1:56 pm In Bike Lanes,SFMTA | 4 Comments


A stenciler was at work in front of San Francisco City Hall recently, painting over the green "showcase" stripe for two plug-in electric vehicles (EV) [1] to reflect what the true green vehicle is: the bike. The bike injunction [2] prevents the city from coloring lanes for bicyclists and this is all we get for now. We do know the MTA is testing green bike lanes at one of its Muni yards, and will probably roll out an experiment sometime after the injunction is lifted. The Presidio Trust, meantime, is conducting a green lane experiment [3] on one of its bike lanes, and Brisbane has installed a blue bike lane [4] on what has become a dangerous stretch of road for cyclists.
