The purpose of the Open House is to give Bridge sidewalk users and other interested stakeholders an opportunity to review and comment on the key findings and recommendations of the study we introduce below, and to offer any suggestions they might have to improve safety on the Bridge sidewalks.

For the past 18 months, Bridge District staff have engaged in review of our bicycle safety policies and current conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians at the Bridge. The key outcome of this review period was the October 2020, Bicycle Safety Study for the Golden Gate Bridge (Study). The study was a collaboration between District staff and an independent consulting group, Alta Planning Design (Alta), to gather data and observations on current Bridge sidewalk conditions. These data and observations have provided us with opportunities to increase bicycle and pedestrian safety while ensuring maximum utility and accommodation for bicycling on the Bridge for commute and recreational travel which you can review in the study.
