2016 Cupertino Community Bike/Ped Highlights:

With You - our community - and our city leaders energized, 2016 came to a close enjoying great momentum for cycling and safety improvements for Cupertino and area residents.  Make sure that you thank our elected and appointed officials for their commitment !  
Their accomplishments include:
  • The majority of the 2015 bike project plan was completed (with ~$500K in remaining projects carried over);
  • $2M budgeted for FY2016 by the city council to start work on implementing select phases of the 2016 Bike Plan.  (Since late 2014, the council has allocated approximately $3.5M for bike/ped safety improvements).

  • Planning/study phases started on:
    • Steven Creek Boulevard: Class IV (separated) bike routes across the city from Foothill to Lawrence Expressway;
    • Cross-Cupertino East/West Protected  Bike Way: McClellan Road route from Foothill Blvd to Tantau Road, tying our schools and library centers together;
    • Public review/input session scheduled for Wednesday, Jan 25th.

  • Cupertino Union School District - Safety Training
    With the support of Safe Routes Program leadership and Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department -  the district leadership launched a formal bike safety training program in all CUSD middle schools with roll-out planned for the balance of CUSD's elementary schools.
  • Upcoming Projects in the first half of the New Year: 
    • Develop a formal Pedestrian Improvement and Safety Plan;

    • Plan the I-280 (adjacent)  bike/ped trail from Mary Avenue to Wolfe Road;

    • Develop  the Union-Pacific  bike/ped trail plan from Rainbow to Stevens Creek Blvd;

    • Create city-wide "Way-finder" bike routes signage 
      to make routes friendlier and useful to the cycling community.

    • Sidewalk ordinance proposed allowing students 12 and under (along with parents) to ride their bicycles on sidewalks.  This ordinance has been approved by the Bike/Ped commission and will be presented to the City Council in February 2016.
