Transportation leaders from government agencies, law enforcement, nonprofit organizations and the public will gather at the 5th annual Silicon Valley Bike Summit to discuss how Santa Clara and San Mateo counties are addressing safety for people who bike as well as how to achieve Vision Zero, an initiative to have zero deaths and major injuries on the roadways.
The summit, which is co-hosted by Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC) and Stanford Healthcare, will take place on Aug. 26, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Oshman Family Jewish Community Center, 3921 Fabian Way. The event will feature presentations, interactive panels and guest speakers, including Nuria Fernandez, CEO of Valley Transportation Authority and Jim Hartnett, CEO of SamTrans.
The San Mateo County Health System and Santa Clara County Health Department will present bicycle collision reports and discuss recommendations for focus areas. SVBC will also provide a tool kit for local governments to implement Vision Zero plans.
The summit will also look at tech solutions to address data holes and safety accessibility issues and initiatives taking place in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
A happy hour will be held after the summit.
SVBC's mission is to create a healthy community, environment, and economy through bicycling for people who live, work, or play in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, according to its website.
