Santa Barbara needs bike share
We need bike share for downtown employees, residents who don't already bike, SBCC students & faculty, and so many others.
Come to City Hall
Let's tell City Council this Tuesday: make sure bikeshare is set up for success.
E-bikes are critical for our program's use-fullness for residents of the Mesa, those accessing the City College, and other semi-hilly locations. The Bicycle Coalition produced this report, which highlighted the strong desire for electric bicycles to be part of the program, as long as three years ago. Additionally, programs like that of the City of Santa Cruz have demonstrated a 3X increase in use for ebikes.
Why start a program that wouldn't be widely used!?
Similarly, the Funk Zone study and plan will be considered which would allow for increased parking spaces along with a small amount of paid parking on the most congested streets. This is the equivalent of adding a parking structure to the Funk Zone – something that would otherwise be unfeasible. It will also generate much needed funding to leverage grants for pedestrian and bicycling improvements in the funk zone, just like the Santa Barbara and Yanonali street intersection improvements that address demonstrated safety concerns!
Ask City Council to realize the extensive work of the Funk Zone community and our City Staff – say yes to the Funk Zone plan!
