40th Street / MacArthur BART Bikeways

Bikeways within two miles of the MacArthur BART station improve east-west bicycle access between MacArthur BART, the Piedmont Ave neighborhood, Kaiser Hospital and Emeryville, and connect to the bicycle and pedestrian path across the eastern span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge.


Since 2009, bikeways have been constructed along all the segments listed below.

  1. W MacArthur Blvd (Martin Luther King Jr Wy to Manila Ave): buffered bike lanes (June 2019)
  2. W MacArthur Blvd (San Pablo Ave to Broadway): bike wayfinding signs (October 2018)
