Green-Backed Sharrows Pleasantly Surprise Riders on the Wiggle

Commuters on the Wiggle got a Bike to Work Day surprise this morning: green-backed sharrows guiding bicycle riders through the intersection of Steiner and Waller Streets.

The "sharrows were painted VERY early this morning and they are permanent," says a post on the SFMTA's Livable Streets Facebook page. Agency staff wrote that more will be added "as wayfinding guides all through the Wiggle" along each block and through other intersections in coming weeks.

The green-backed sharrow treatment arose from the SFMTA's ThinkBike sessions with Dutch bike planners.

One rider told SFMTA staff, "It's like riding on candy!"
