Expand the number of bike-friendly miles

The City wants to make cycling a more practical and convenient transportation option for San Diegans. Expanding the number of bike-friendly miles encourages people to commute by bike and ride recreationally.

The existing bicycling network consists of the following types of bikeways:

  • Bike paths (Class I)
  • Bike lanes (Class II)
  • Bike routes (Class III)
  • Freeway shoulders

Bike-friendly miles added or improved by fiscal year

Increase accessibility for people with disabilities

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a Federal law that prohibits discrimination based on ability. The City must follow regulations to make all programs, services, and activities accessible to persons with disabilities.

The City has a Transition Plan for making structural changes to comply with ADA, such as installing curb ramps. To support this plan, residents can make a complaint about any ADA issue with regard to program or facility access. Complaints can be phoned in to the City’s Disability Services Coordinator or any City department or submitted online using the Make a Complaint link found under the Office of ADA Compliance and Accessibility’s website.
