Bicycle/Pedestrian Programs


The City’s goal is to provide a safe, convenient, efficient, continuous, and aesthetically pleasing transportation environment that is conducive to cycling and walking. The City of Gainesville Bicycle/Pedestrian Program seeks to facilitate the use of these alternative modes of transportation by focusing on infrastructure enhancements, safety and outreach. Click here for a timeline history of the Bicycle/Pedestrian Program.
