Walking and Bicycling in Mountain View

Pedestrian Master Plan
At its January 15, 2013 meeting, the City Council approved the Pedestrian Master Plan and designated the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee (B/PAC), in its advisory role to the Council Transportation Committee, as the body responsible for developing recommendations for updates/revisions to the Pedestrian Master Plan in the future.  At its January 28, 2014 meeting, the City Council approved the updated Pedestrian Master Plan.

The City Council has proclaimed May 2014 as Bike Month.

Mountain View Bike Maps and information regarding bikeways and bicycle facilities, including downtown bike lockers and the bike shelter at the downtown Mountain View Transit Center, can be obtained from the Public Works Department by calling 650-903-6311 or by emailing public.works@mountainview.gov

Bike Share Pilot Program
The City of Mountain View is one of five Bay Area cities participating in the Bay Area Bike Share Pilot Program launched on August 28, 2013. The Bike Share system enables members to check out a bike from a network of automated bicycle stations, ride to their destination, and return the bike to a different station. Bike Share provides a convenient and affordable transportation alternative or supplement to cars and mass transit.

Bicycle Licensing
Bicycle licenses are issued at any of the City’s five fire stations; note, however, that this service is not available at the Police/Fire Administration Building. The fee is $1.  The general phone number for the fire department is 650-903-6365. 

Bicycle Lockers/Secured Storage
The City
offers rent-free bicycle storage. Spaces are available in the bicycle shelter located at the Downtown Transit Center, at the corner of Castro Street and Evelyn Avenue, or one of the many bicycle lockers found throughout Mountain View's downtown.
Renting a locker or shelter space is easy. Bring a valid California Driver License or other California-issued photo identification card, a description of the bike to be locked/parked, the bike's serial or identification number, and $25 for a one-time refundable deposit, to the Public Works Department located on the first floor of City Hall at 500 Castro Street. Once you sign the rental agreement and pay the $25 deposit, you will receive your shelter access code or bike locker key.
Contact the Public Works Department at 650-903-6311 or public.works@mountainview.gov if you have any questions or need additional information.
