If you’re tired of sitting in traffic, try walking or biking! By changing at least one trip to walking or biking, you can improve your health, save money on gas and vehicle maintenance, and prevent the release of harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
The County’s Active Transportation Program supports policies and programs that reduce traffic congestion and encourage more bicycling and walking. Priorities for improvement are identified in the Comprehensive Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. The Active Transportation Program staffs the County-wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee and oversees bicycle and pedestrian education and encouragement programs.
Annual San Mateo County Bicycle and Pedestrian Count
The National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation (NBPD) Project is a nationwide effort to provide data collection and ongoing data for use by planners, governments, and the general public. The goal is to provide accurate and consistent documentation on usage and demand, and encourage investments in transportation modes other than the private automobile.
Thank you to all the volunteers who participated in the count. Check out the interactive map of the 2016 and 2017 results!

County Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee
The San Mateo County Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (SMCBPAC) reviews policies, programs and priorities to improve walking and bicycling locally. We create an annual plan focused on neighborhoods in the unincorporated areas of the county. Committee members talk to residents to get their input on walking and bicycling issues. The feedback we get from you allows us to make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors. Let’s work together to make San Mateo County a better place to walk and bike!
Meetings of the SMCBPAC are held on the third Thursday of even numbered months (excluding December). The meetings begin at 7:00 pm at San Mateo City Hall, Conference Room C. San Mateo City Hall is located at 330 West 20th Street in the City of San Mateo. More information can be found at the San Mateo County Boards and Commissions website.
