Richmond Bike Share Survey

The City is developing its Richmond Bike Share. Throughout the month of April we are offering you an opportunity to participate in the below survey designed to shape our outreach plan, as well as to understand how bike share can bring value to different members and segments of our community.

Please click on this link to provide your input through our survey:

This survey will provide us with additional feedback on how we can work to make the Richmond Bike Share meaningful to potential users.

All responses are anonymous and no information will be shared.

Thanks for helping build awareness of this developing initiative and making it as valuable to the community as possible.

Richmond’s First Bike Master Plan is Now Complete!

The City of Richmond and our consultant team from the firms Michael Baker, Jr., and Alta Planning and Design has developed the City’s first ever Bicycle Master Plan which details a proposed network of improved bike infrastructure throughout the City. This document was developed with extensive public comment and feedback and will serve as a blueprint as the City continues to build a more inclusive bike infrastructure. With nearly 3,000 responses to the online survey and several hundred comments and markups made with the online mapping tool, the City is confident that this plan moves Richmond in the right direction to improved biking convenience and safety.

Though this plan provides a degree of prioritization of projects for development of a connected network based on a range of factors, it is intended to be a living document that will evolve as the City moves forward with implementation and as new opportunities arise. Some details are more general as some projects will evolve as we move towards implementation and make determinations on the most suitable type of infrastructure and improvements along a particular street or corridor.

The complete plan and appendix can be accessed here:
