What is the purpose of an on-street bicycle route network?

The on-street bicycle routes will have signage to show bicyclists how to navigate through the city using lower volume roadways. The on-street bicycle route network also includes several arterial roads or portions of arterial roads that are identified as bicycle routes as they are essential to completing connections where no other option is available. Plano’s on-street bicycle routes can be found on this on-street bicycle transportation map. Signs are placed along routes so bicyclists can get the route information as they travel to connect to multi-use recreational trails, schools, libraries, recreation centers, DART bus or rail transit stops, shopping or places of employment. The signage also lets motorists know that bicyclists will be present on those routes.
