Current Bicycle Routes

As part of the Tyler 21 Plan, the City of Tyler is committed to developing alternatives to automobile transportation by making pedestrian and bike travel a priority. Bike routes, bike lanes and the hike and bike trail systems connect parks, offices, retail centers, lodging, schools and neighborhoods; all to promote a healthy lifestyle and eco-friendly community.

Bike Routes are designated roadways where bicyclists share the road with vehicular traffic.

Bike Lanes are areas with specific striping to designate the area bicyclists should ride in.
