Bicycle & Pedestrian Facilities Program
Oakland's Bicycle & Pedestrian Facilities Program plans, secures funds for and implements bicycle projects throughout Oakland. The program also provides technical assistance on the planning and construction of bicycle and pedestrian projects implemented by other City departments.
Funding for program staff comes from Alameda County's Measure B sales tax revenues for transportation. Oakland receives approximately $1 million per year from Measure B. The ½-cent sales tax for transportation earmarks 5% of revenues for bicycle and pedestrian projects. In October 2008, Oakland City Council adopted a priority list of projects for the Fiscal Years 2009-10 through 2012-13. The list allocates 65% of these funds to pedestrian safety projects and 35% to bicycle projects. Read report and resolution. Projects are also funded by various local, state and federal transportation grants.
The program has two full-time staff, two half-time interns, and occasionally, volunteers for special projects (including Bike to Work Day). To volunteer, go to the Bicycle Facilities Volunteer Program page.
