    What is BART’s overall strategy behind the Brentwood park-and-ride? It is hard to imagine that people are clamoring for a four-seat car-bus-eBART-BART ride to any place.

    This is making the rounds. Roger, this is a huge commute route out of SF, we have 60,000 documented GPS trips on this 1 mile section of roadway that Caltrans wants to ban bicyclists from using. I think a little sunshine would be appropriate here.

    Hello,

    This is to notify
    you that Caltrans District 4 Office of Traffic Safety is pursuing a
    bicycle prohibition on the State Route 35 freeway interchange with State
    Route 1 between Hickey Boulevard to Westmoor Avenue due to the number
    of ramps
    in each direction and number of lanes bicyclists need to merge across
    with motorists travelling at freeway speeds. Alternate routes are
    available to bicyclists on the local network via Skyline Dr./Gateway Dr.
    to the west of Route 35 and Southgate Ave/St. Francis
    Blvd/Callan Blvd. to the east. Signs will be installed in the next
    couple weeks alerting bicyclists of the freeway prohibition.

    I’m
    contacting you to either help get the word out or let me know of any
    contacts I should reach out to. I would also like to know if there are
    any suggestions for future consideration for bicyclists along the SR 35
    corridor in Daly City
    since we are currently developing a District 4 Bicycle Plan that will cover the State Route network in the Bay Area.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Sergio Ruiz

    Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator / Branch Chief
    Caltrans District 4

    Hmmm… Shouldn’t Caltran’s own “routine accommodation” policies prohibit this exclusion?

    Here’s the Strava heat map of the road in question.

    Is SR-35 even the best route? Maybe Caltrans considers Skyline Dr. to Gateway Dr. a superior route for bicyclists.
