Protected bike lanes are on-street bike facilities protected from moving and parked cars by a physical barrier. These lanes make driving and cycling more comfortable by creating a dedicated space on the road for people to bike. Protected bike lanes may allow for travel in one or both directions.
On your bike:
- Watch for signs and paint symbols indicating the direction of travel
In your car:
- Look both directions and yield to bikes when crossing
In your car and on your bike:
- Travel slow along the Downtown Bike Network so you have time to see and respond to all the new features
