Miles of Bicycle Facilities

Santa Clara & San Mateo Counties | 2016 & 2017

Data are compiled from MTC, VTA, and Google Streets, and include Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Bicycle facility classes have been defined by Caltrans and include Class 1 (Shared Use Path), Class II (Bikeway), Class III (Bike Route/Boulevard), and Class IV (Protected Bikeway). The Santa Clara County dataset was updated by VTA in 2017. The new dataset for Class 1 (Shared Use Path) includes pathway networks in parks, as well as parallel measurements for pathways that run along both sides of waterways. The metric does not include unpaved paths in mountainous state park areas that are mostly used for mountain bike recreation. The new dataset for Class 2 (Bikeway) includes parallel lane measurements for bike lanes that occur on roadways with medians that restrict passage from one side of the road to the other, as well as roadway that have shoulders that are treated as bike lanes but may not have stenciling. The 2017 data for Class 3 (Bike Route/Boulevard) includes additional bike routes that were not included in the 2016 data. The San Mateo County dataset for 2017 includes the 2016 inventory plus any bicycle infrastructure that had been added or removed over the prior year.
