RTA reaches bike lane milestone

Oct. 2, 2019 - Three hundred miles is quite the distance when you are talking about riding a bike. It’s like riding the longest El Tour de Tucson route three times. The Regional Transportation Authority, along with its member jurisdictions have completed 300 miles of voter-approved bike lanes and bike paths in the region. There are 250 miles to go.

Many of the corridor improvements in the RTA plan include bike lanes. Projects vary, from restriping of existing roadways for bike lanes to widening roads for new bike facilities, river pathways, sidewalk and pathway construction.

You can see how bike and pathway projects are distributed and connect throughout the region on this this map (PDF 1.3MB).

This is a great time of the year to get out and enjoy a ride like these folks did one recent October morning.
