Bring bikeshare to the entire Sunset District!

The Sunset District is one of the most bikeable areas in San Francisco. Bikeshare in our neighborhood would be immensely popular, beneficial, and useful. However, there is no planned GoBike expansion for bikeshare in the majority of the Sunset District.
Bikeshare is a green, affordable, and healthy transportation alternative to driving or even public transit. This type of infrastructure would allow folks in the Sunset to get around the neighborhood and the city without the hassle of car ownership, freeing up limited street parking and increasing foot traffic to our local businesses.
Properly located around the main Muni transit lines (N-Judah, L-Taraval, 7-Noriega), bike routes (Kirkham St, Ortega St, Vicente St, etc.), and arteries (19th Avenue, Sunset Boulevard, Great Highway, Sloat Boulevard, etc.), bikeshare stations could fill most public transportation coverage gaps. With the planned bikeshare expansion to the Richmond District in 2018, bikeshare in the Sunset would provide more links between the two sides of Golden Gate Park. Bikeshare in the Sunset would also make our schools, parks, playgrounds, and popular landmarks more accessible to Sunset neighbors and visitors. Residents would have an easy way to visit neighborhood attractions like the San Francisco Zoo, Ocean Beach, the Beach Chalet, and the Tiled Steps.
Our low-income neighbors can also benefit from this program thanks to the “Bikeshare For All” option that provides one year of membership for only $5.
Riding a bike is fun, convenient, and sustainable. Please bring bikeshare to the entire Sunset District!
