Print editions of the Oakland Bikeways Map have been around for a while
This just in: The city of Oakland has partnered with Walk Oakland-Bike Oakland to create a new online version of the Bikeways map.
Cyclists were always able to find free hard copies of the print map at local bike stores. The print map was the work of Jake Coolige, when he was an intern for the city. (Coolige is also well known for this imaginary BART map.) Last year, the city also made a pdf non-interactive copy of the Bikeways map available online.
This new, interactive map - from its current, third print edition - can be accessed from computers, tablets and smart phones that are google map-friendly. A lot of the work on this map was completed by current Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Program Intern, Mark Lightner.
The city currently has three half-time interns from local colleges and universities working on multiple projects. All three versions of the map (online pdf, print copies and interactive) include existing facilities like bikeways and bike parking, signage and street striping currently in development and way finding destinations like hospitals and public transportation.
