Bicycle Advisory Committee – Houston Bikeways

Bicycle Advisory Committee

“Houstonians need more choices to connect safely to jobs, parks and services other than by car. The Houston Bike Plan provides a guide toward creating a safer and more accessible city that can be enjoyed by anyone who wants to ride a bicycle. I am proud of our accomplishments thus far but know there is much more to do.” – Mayor Sylvester Turner

About the Committee


The committee will advise and make recommendations to the Planning Commission and Planning Director on bicycling issues in Houston, including amendments to the Bike Plan, bicycle safety and education, strategies for funding projects, and promoting public participation in bicycling. The Committee was established by ordinance in 2017 to assist in implementation of the Houston Bike Plan.

The Chair and Vice Chair of the Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) formed two subcommittees in May 2018. The two subcommittees are the Infrastructure Subcommittee and the Education Subcommittee. These two subcommittees were established in order to draft recommendations for consideration by the BAC. The Infrastructure Subcommittee will address topics related to selecting, designing and implementing the Bike Plan’s proposed network of bikeways.  The Education Subcommittee will address educational programs and tools needed to increase safety for vulnerable road users. The equitable distribution of new bike infrastructure and safety of vulnerable road users will be core components of both subcommittees.

The subcommittees will meet in alternating months that the full BAC is not meeting (i.e. Infrastructure Subcommittee will meet in May, the Education Subcommittee will meet in June, and the full BAC meeting will be held in July).
