A brief description of the plan:

The UC Davis Bicycle Plan (2011), prepared by the UC Davis Bicycle Coordinator, serves as a guide to the continuing improvement and encouragement of bicycling as a significant mode of transportation to, from and on the University of California campus at Davis. As such, this document describes existing policies and facilities related to campus bicycling, and it includes a list of projects and programs intended to improve the UC Davis cycling environment in the future. The plan complies with the requirements and guidelines spelled out in Section 891.2 of the California Streets and Highways Code.

The UC Davis Bikeway and Transit Network Study (BTNS) began in March 2008 and was completed in February 2009. A long-range planning effort, the purpose of the BTNS is to improve bicycle and transit access to meet today’s demand and position these networks for future growth.

To achieve these goals, the BTNS focused on developing a flexible bikeway network that can accommodate incremental growth and that provides improved connections throughout campus with particular emphasis on connections between the Central Campus and the planned West Village.

The BTNS provides a blueprint for the campus’ future bikeway and transit network by recommending specific improvements to upgrade existing infrastructure and outlining where new facilities are needed. As implementation is crucial to the success of any plan, the BTNS provides an overview of conceptual costs, priorities, funding sources, and implementation issues.
