This Week: Embarcadero Bikeway, Curbing Placard Abuse

Be sure to take a roll on the Embarcadero this week, where the SFMTA has installed a short, temporary stretch of two-way protected bikeway. Van Ness BRT is also set to take a major step forward with a vote by the SFCTA Board; SPUR discusses ways that cities can curb handicap parking placard abuse; and the SF Bicycle Coalition tours livable streets improvements in the Richmond.

Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • All Week: Take a ride on the SFMTA's temporary two-way protected bikeway on a stretch of the Embarcadero, which replaces a traffic lane and parking lane to encourage bicycling during America's Cup. The bikeway runs from Washington to Green Street and is set to be removed Sunday night.
  • Tuesday: The SF County Transportation Authority Board, comprised of the Board of Supervisors, is expected to approve the environmental impact report for the Van Ness Bus Rapid Transit project. 11 a.m.
  • Wednesday: SPUR holds a forum to discuss the proposal to charge handicap parking placard holders and other "proven" strategies recommended by the city’s Accessible Parking Policy Advisory Committee to reduce placard abuse. 12:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: SFBC hosts a rec ride led by Andy Thornley through the Richmond District to take look at recent pedestrian and bicycling improvements sprouting up in the northwestern corner of the city. 1:30 p.m.
