The Department of Engineering & Capital Projects recently implemented a project to evaluate local middle schools’ street and sidewalk infrastructure for connectivity and coverage and to identify on-the-ground infrastructure deficiencies through school route field audits.
Based on the results, the City has created suggested school route maps for pedestrians and bicyclists, mainly focusing on a 1-mile radius around Chula Vista Middle Schools:
Bonita Vista Middle School
Castle Park Middle School
Chula Vista Middle School
Eastlake Middle School
Hilltop Middle School
Rancho Del Rey Middle School
Bike Chula Vista | A Bicycle-Friendly Community
Bicycling is great for everyone — communities, businesses, schools, and people. It promotes active lifestyles, reduces traffic congestion, and improves air quality; but most importantly, it's fun! In fact, the City itself has been certified as a bronze-level "Bicycle-Friendly Community" by the American League of Cyclists.
The City of Chula Vista also works to expand bicycling-related infrastructure throughout the community. The Chula Vista Bikeway Master Plan was updated in 2011 and provides a blueprint for developing a robust network of bike lanes and routes to make bicycling safe and easy. Check out the "Bike Chula Vista" map & guide to learn about local bicycling resources:
