The Bicycle Environmental Quality Index (BEQI) is a quantitative
observational survey to assess the bicycle environment on roadways and
evaluate what streetscape improvements could be made to promote
bicycling in San Francisco. The survey has 21 empirically-based
indicators, each of which has been shown to promote or discourage
bicycle riding and connectivity to other modes of transport. SFDPH identified five main categories which embody
important physical environmental factors for bicyclists: Intersection
Safety, Vehicle Traffic, Street Design, Safety, and Land Use.
