Traffic & Transportation

Transportation is one of four priorities developed by City Council.  Click here to learn more about the four priorities.  It is the goal of the City to improve roadway safety and reduce congestion for all modes of transportation (cars, pedestrians, and cyclists). In furtherance of these goals, the City of Burlingame Traffic Safety & Parking Commission is committed to providing the general public with a citizen’s forum for which to discuss matters pertaining to traffic, parking, and pedestrian safety in the City. The Commission holds regular monthly meetings, which are open to public participation and input.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

On Monday, December 7, 2020, the City Council approved the 2020 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Click here to view a copy of the adopted 2020 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.

The 2020 Update of Burlingame’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan aims to improve the safety, health, and quality of life of Burlingame residents through transportation infrastructure, programs, and policy improvements that enhance the safety, comfort, and attractiveness of walking and bicycling for people of all ages and abilities. The plan was developed through a robust, multiphase community engagement process. Over the course of the three-phase outreach process, thousands of comments were received from Burlingame stakeholders. The plan will be an essential tool for guiding city staff, officials, developers and residents in building a balanced transportation system where active modes are supported and accessible.
