Bike Action Plan

The Bike Action Plan is guided and supported by Santa Monica’s award-winning 2010 Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE) which lays out a bold vision for the city’s future, one that protects and enhances the city’s beautiful neighborhoods, creates new community benefits in complete neighborhoods around the new light rail stations, supports community character through good design, and minimizes traffic through a “No Net New Vehicle Trips” policy. This Bike Action Plan strives to be equally bold and practical. On the one hand, this plan envisions a future Santa Monica in which it is attractive and fun for Santa Monicans of all ages and abilities to use a bike to get everywhere in the city and to meet all the needs of daily life. On the other hand, it is also a detailed five-year implementation strategy for moving toward that vision. The adopted LUCE established a strong framework that supports the Bike Action Plan through:

  • Integrating Land Use and Transportation
  • Creating Complete Streets
  • Preserving and Enhancing Neighborhoods
  • Managing Congestion
  • Ensuring Quality Transportation Choices
  • Facilitating Affordable and Healthy Transportation
  • Supporting Economic Health
