The City of San Antonio is developing a plan to make its streets more friendly to pedestrians, bicycles, wheelchairs, e-scooters and other forms of short-trip transport.

The Micromobility Policy will supplement an already approved Complete Streets Policy, and aims to make it easy, safe and reliable for residents to get to where they need to go without a motor vehicle.

An online survey soliciting feedback from residents and employers is open through Sept. 30.

What does a more micromobility-friendly San Antonio look like? What infrastructure will be required?

What are the biggest challenges and opportunities when implementing these kinds of policies?

Guests:

  • Timothy Hayes, pedestrian mobility officer for the City of San Antonio
  • Robin Stallings, executive director for Bike Texas
