The Austin Bicycle Master Plan needs your support! Please tell City Council to adopt the updated Bicycle Plan at Thursday’s public hearing!

The 2014 plan is an amended and updated version of the 2009 Bicycle Master Plan. The update sets an overarching goal of creating an all ages and abilities bicycle network in Austin, in which users from ages 8 to 80 can ride safely and comfortably. The update also applies the latest innovations in bicycle infrastructure, such as cycle tracks or protected bike lanes, to the original 2009 plan.

How To Give Support

1. Email City Council Members with a statement of your support. Your email will go to every council member.  Here is a list of talking points.

2. Register your support at City Hall  in person at one of the kiosks at City Hall at 301 W. 2nd Street. The kiosks will be available for you to use after 12 noon on Monday, November 3. The kiosks will also be available to use during Thursday’s meeting.

3. Sign up to speak in favor of the plan at the City Council meeting, which begins at 10 AM in City Hall at 301 W. 2nd Street on Thursday, November 6. If you sign up to speak, please let BikeAustin know at allison.kaplan@gmail.com. We like to be ready with a shorter list of speakers if Council limits the speakers for each side.
