Exploring San Bruno on foot, by bike, or on public transit is a great way to exercise, visit new places, and take care of daily needs. Below are helpful resources for walking, biking, hiking, and riding transit in San Bruno.
To supplement the existing network, new facilities are planned as well. On July 26, 2016, the City Council adopted the San Bruno Walk ‘n Bike Plan, the first citywide plan devoted exclusively to walking and biking. The Plan focuses on creating safe, comfortable, and convenient ways for people to walk and bike throughout San Bruno.
San Bruno has a network of sidewalks, marked crosswalks, and pedestrian crossing signals and is planning to expand and improve this network based on projects identified in the San Bruno Walk ‘n Bike Plan.
Using the city’s sidewalk network, one could visit the San Bruno Public Library, City Park, or downtown San Mateo Avenue. Next time you are planning a trip by car, consider one by foot instead! Click here to see San Bruno’s sidewalk network on Google maps for your next trip.
Currently, cyclists are allowed on any street in San Bruno (except freeways), and the Walk ‘n Bike Plan seeks to develop this network further into a comprehensive, 23-mile long bike network for safe, comfortable, and convenient travel around the city.

Taking public transit is a great way to leave your car at home and explore the City and the Bay Area! San Bruno is fortunate to be well connected with regional transit agencies including the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system, the San Mateo Transit (SamTrans) bus system, and the Caltrain system.
You can also pair your bike ride with a transit ride by bringing your bike on board BART and Caltrain, or placing your bike on the front-mounted racks on a SamTrans bus; see the “Biking” section above for more information.
“Active” means getting to work without a car – by walking, biking, taking public transit, or other means. This is a great way to get exercise, save money, and reduce carbon emissions – a win for you and the community!
