We’re proud to say that Reset San Francisco Founder Phil Ting’s AB 1193 was signed by Governor Brown, giving cities the ability to build safer, better bikeways.

AB 1193 adopts three key reforms to improve local bikeway design and construction and making riding bicycles in cities safer. The bill:

  • Frees communities from having bikeway designs compliant solely with the Highway Design Manual if designs are based on design standards crafted by a national association of public agency transportation officials;
  • Allows local governments to build protected cycletracks; and
  • Requires Caltrans to develop design standards for cycletracks for inclusion into the HDM by 2016.
