Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs
The City of Fremont's Bicycle and Pedestrian Program's primary objective is to provide cyclists and pedestrians with safe and accessible routes to all destinations that are served by public roads, trails, and various forms of public transit within and outside the City.This program covers the 5 E's - Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement and Evaluation. An approach that draws from all the 5 E's will be the most successful in improving safety, and increasing the number of Fremont residents bicycling or walking to work, schools, shopping centers, and recreation facilities.
The program also promotes accessibility and mobility for persons with special needs such as the elderly and disabled by providing facilities that will assist them in their transportation needs. See Paratransit for additional details and resources.
The Measure B and BB Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs are Alameda County's half-cent transportation sales tax in which a portion of the funds are allocated for the planning and construction of bicycle and pedestrian programs. Measure B was first authorized by voters in 1986, and re-approved by voters in 2000 to sunset in 2022. Measure BB was voter approved in 2014 and continues half-cent transportation sales tax and augments the existing 2000 Measure B sales tax program. For more information on countywide transportation improvements, visit the Alameda County Transportation Commission.
