Bicycle, Pedestrian & Micromobility
MTC supports many programs that encourage people to get out of their cars and walk, bike or roll for an active, healthier community and environment.
MTC plans programs, grants, proposed path extensions and sponsored events to encourage Bay Area residents to get out of their cars, and spend more time walking, biking, skating and scooting.
Pedestrians and bicyclists have enjoyed over 700,000 trips from Oakland to Yerba Buena Island, with panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay.
This program helps launch bike sharing in counties across the region.
The annual Bay Area Bike to Work Day is the biggest bicycle commute event in the U.S.
MTC is working to reduce deaths and injuries from traffic collisions by supporting Bay Area Vision Zero initiatives.

Micromobility includes ways of getting around that are fully or partially human-powered — such as bikes, e-bikes and e-scooters and mobility-assistance devices/wheelchairs. Most commonly, micromobility vehicles do not exceed 15mph.
This MTC program uses state and federal funds to support walking and biking travel options.
When streets are designed to include walkers, rollers and cyclists, people are safer and get more physical activity. And cities get a break from greenhouse emissions.
MTC supports the operation of regional trails and parks, including the San Francisco Bay Trail, the San Francisco Bay Water Trail and Judge John Sutter Regional Shoreline (Gateway Park).
