Slow Streets are temporary closures of streets in your neighborhood.
Places where you can slow down and have room to move during the pandemic.
Because there are a lot fewer cars, and room to move.
You can bike to essential services like your local grocery store, pharmacy or doctor.
Or just enjoy the open space.
MTC helps cities and counties get started with Slow Streets.
By sharing resources, community leaders can move quickly, building on work that's been done by others.
Oakland closed 20 miles of streets across 18 routes.
Across the Bay Area, even more parklets, outdoor dining spaces, bikeways and Slow Streets have opened.
See the MTC toolbox that's shared with local governments.
