Research Report Cites Trends in Cycling in Major North American Cities

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s University Transportation Research Center at the City College of New York (Region II) has published a report that examines trends in bicycling levels, safety, and policies over two decades in nine large North American cities. The report finds that cycling rates rose much faster in the case study cities than in Canada and the U.S. as a whole, at least doubling since 1990, and documents a range of innovative infrastructure and programs implemented, including expanded and improved bike lanes and paths, traffic calming, and bike-transit integration. The report also cites lessons learned from New York City, which lags the other cities in implementing comprehensive policies to promote cycling.  Finally, the report summarizes an analysis of the impacts of bike lanes and paths on cycling levels in the 100 largest U.S. cities.
