Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee (PABAC)

What is PABAC?

Palo Alto receives technical advice from its volunteer Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee (PABAC). PABAC is a citizen advisory committee which reports to the Chief Transportation Official. Members have interest in or knowledge of bicycling issues. The Committee's role is to review all issues related to bicycling in the areas of engineering, enforcement, education and encouragement. The types of activities include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Review and comment on the design of Capital Improvement Program projects, street improvements, traffic signal projects, and parking facilities projects.
  • Review and comment on changes and updates to the Palo Alto Comprehensive Plan, Zoning Ordinance, Municipal Code and other policy documents which relate to bicycling.
  • Review and prioritize the City's annual Transportation Development Act (TDA) Article 3 list of pedestrian and bicycle projects and report the Committee's recommendations to the City Council.
  • Provide liaison between the City and the community and community groups on issues related to bicycling.
  • Promote bicycling as a viable form of transportation.
  • Assist in the development and dissemination of bicycle safety awareness and education materials to the community.
  • Review and comment on private development plans, which include bicycle facilities or have impact on bicycle safety and access.
  • Initiate requests to City staff on issues of concern to the Committee related to bicycling.
