Bicycle and Pedestrian Program

Oakland is working to be a more bikeable and walkable city to improve safety, enhance quality of life, and reduce our environmental footprint. Learn about Oakland's bicycle plan, pedestrian plan, projects and programs. View the Bike Facilities and Projects map below. Join the BPAC!

Take the bikeways print map survey!

OakDOT is kicking off the process of updating the Oakland Bikeways printed map, and we're looking for your feedback! See the 2023 map here. First printed in 2010, the map is updated annually. In response to community feedback, we are considering modifying the symbology in the 2024 edition. Survey will be open until Friday March 15, 2024.
