Bike safety gets a green light in the green lane.

Say hello to safer and more visible bike lanes! The City of Rancho Cucamonga is implementing bright green bike lanes to help promote biking as a transportation method and enhance safety for bicyclists and motorists. Thanks to the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee grant, this enhancement project highlights bikes lanes with green thermoplastic in areas where vehicles and bicycles may meet, such as approaching intersections and right turn pockets. Green bike lanes allow bicyclists to feel safer when approaching a conflict area, where weaving typically occurs, while also increasing awareness of bicyclists to other motorists.

Initial improvements were made at the intersection of Base Line Road and Carnelian Street and these improvements are now expanding along Base Line Road, Haven Avenue, Jersey Boulevard, and 6th Street. The project represents a visible City commitment to active transportation and Healthy RC. Remember to share the road and keep an eye out in the Green Zone!
