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 Program, first authorized by voters in 1986, and re-approved by voters in 2000, provides funding for various transportation projects throughout Alameda County.  For more information on countywide transportation improvements, visit the Alameda County Transportation Commission.

Fremont Pedestrian Master Plan


The Fremont Pedestrian Master Plan is a policy plan intended to encourage walking as an alternative mode of travel in Fremont while implementing the pedestrian related goals and policies of the General Plan. The development of the Pedestrian Master Plan involved the City's Bicycle and Pedestrian Technical Advisory Committee (BPTAC) with extensive public input and six public meetings over the course of its development. View the Fremont Pedestrian Master Plan Part 1 and Fremont Pedestrian Master Plan Part 2 for more information.

What the Plan Includes


This Plan includes goals, policies, strategies, and phased recommendations that:
Encourage walking as a means of travel
Improve the pathway system for people with disabilities and children walking to school
Increase the overall number of pedestrian trips
It focuses on enhancing pedestrian safety at crosswalks and along streets, as well as provides a blueprint for improving residents' quality of life, creating a more sustainable environment, and reducing traffic, noise, and energy consumption.
