SFBC Member Meeting – Market Street Changes

"Come to the SFBC office for a lively discussion on the trial Market St. changes. The traffic changes will have been in place for two weeks, and we want to hear what it’s like to bike on Market St. with fewer cars, and at the intersections with forced right turns. We’ll also discuss the other components of the Better Market Street project that will be rolling out in the next 6 to 12 months. We are looking for recommendations to make Market St. safer for bikes now, and in the long term."
