Bicycle Traffic Continues Decline from 2016

Post Date:07/28/2017 3:00 PM
Bicycle traffic in Sausalito declined by 19% in June of 2017, compared to June of last year, according to statistics presented by the Sausalito Police Department at the July 25 meeting of the City Council.

The data was collected by SausalitoPlus at our southern city limits during peak bicycle hours. The 19% decline follows steeper declines of 32% in April and 23% in May of this year.

2016 bicycle counts
April: 30,525
May: 32,902
June: 36,330

2017 bicycle counts
April: 23,413
May: 22,376
June: 29,462

The figures from SausalitoPlus support data from the Golden Gate Ferry, which show a 19% decline in passengers with bicycles in June 2017, compared to 2016. Looking at the 2017 bicycle season as a whole, the bicycle count on Golden Gate Ferry from April to June of this year was 38,743, down from 45,279 in 2016. Golden Gate Ferry's peak year was 2014, with 50,804 bicycles between April and June.

A portion of the decrease in the number of bikes on the ferry can be attributed to the success of Sausalito Bike Return, which reported returning 663 bicycles to San Francisco by truck in June 2016.
