How can we continue to improve options for bicyclists and pedestrians in Sunnyvale?
How can Sunnyvale students more safely walk and bike to school?
The City of Sunnyvale is exploring these questions as part of a year-long effort to create an Active Transportation Plan that will address bicycle, pedestrian and Safe Routes to Schools needs throughout the City.
The Active Transportation Plan will help the City strategically invest in programs and projects to make walking and bicycling safer and more convenient for residents. In addition, the Plan will analyze ways to make it safer for Sunnyvale students to walk and bike to school.

The Active Transportation Plan kicked off April 2019 and is a 12-month process. The Plan includes many opportunities for public input during its development.
Walking and Biking Needs
The recommended programs and future projects will be guided by a technical analysis that includes:
The City will also rely on public input to help guide the process. City of Sunnyvale residents, visitors and workers will help identify existing barriers to walking and biking around the City, and locations where people would like to be able to walk and bike.
Safe Routes to Schools
Designing an environment where students can safely walk and bike to school is a priority for the City. We will conduct audits at all 21 public schools serving Sunnyvale students to identify potential improvements for routes to and from school.
