Muni to get advice from Europeans on implementing bike plan

With The City on the verge of finally implementing a long-delayed plan to add an extensive network of bike lanes, local transportation officials will get a little advice from their European friends on how to carry out the ambitious undertaking.

A delegation from the German Marshall Fund’s Transatlantic Cities network, a European group currently on a tour of the states, is scheduled to meet with Muni on Tuesday to discuss best practice policies for installing the 34 miles of bicycle lanes that are part of the San Francisco Bike Plan.

The two groups will also discuss the environmental and public health benefits of encouraging strong bicycle usage in The City. The public is welcome to attend the meeting, which is scheduled to last from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the second floor Muni’s headquarters on One South Van Ness Avenue.
