The City of Boca Raton's Bicycles/Pedestrians Program is designed to improve and enhance access to existing facilities and programs, and to increase the public awareness of bicyclists and other pedestrian users of pathways and roadways through the application of four areas:
Engineering: Designing, improving, and expanding bike lanes, shared-use paths, bike routes, and sidewalks by taking bold steps to provide safer road systems and sidewalks that will make Boca Raton truly "Bicycle and Pedestrian Friendly."
Education: Providing knowledge and skills necessary to reduce conflicts between bicycles, pedestrians, and motor vehicles, including helping children develop safe traffic behavior, such as stopping at the edge, searching left-right-left, scanning to the rear, signaling, and avoiding hazards.
Encouragement: Promoting biking and walking as a healthy and cost-saving alternative to driving around Boca Raton.
Enforcement: Promoting public safety through the enforcement of traffic laws that protect bicyclists and pedestrians.
Citizen's Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Advisory Board
The Citizen's Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Advisory Board helps raise awareness for bicycle and pedestrian users of pathways and roadways. The public is welcome to attend and provide input on pedestrian and bicycling amenities within Boca Raton at the Citizen's Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Advisory Board. The board meets at 7:30pm on the second Monday of every month at the City Annex Building.
