SFBC Survey Ride: Geary BRT and bikes

"If you live, work, pedal or strap-hang along the Geary Boulevard
corridor you should know about the project to bring significantly better
transit service to that busy and heavily-traveled route. But it’s about
more than Geary bus rapid transit BRT, worthy and important as that may be — there are improvements coming for the walking and biking environment as well.

This bike ride will get out and survey the Geary Boulevard
corridor itself, looking at planning for BRT service and examining
project-related opportunities for bikeway improvements on Geary and
nearby streets. City staff and advocates will be along to explain the
project and answer questions, and we encourage you to test-ride the
streets before the survey ride if you can, and if you’re comfortable — here’s a map of the route we’ll be riding and looking at. Meet us on the street to learn more about, and help shape, this exciting project (here’s the SFCTA’s Geary BRT page)."
