Austin Cities for Cycling Road Show

Austin kicks into high gear as Cities for Cycling Road Show sweeps through Texas capital


Austin’s Guadalupe Street Protected Bike Lane

On November 11-13, 2013, NACTO’s Cities for Cycling Road Show series headed to Austin, TX.

A pioneer bicycle-friendly city in the southwest, Austin has successfully boosted their bike mode share through ambitious expansions of their on and off-street bike network. Moving forward, the city is committed to building more protected bike lanes and was one of several cities selected to participate in the Green Lane Project. In 2012, they built their first several miles of protected bikeways and have consistently incorporated innovative bikeway treatments into their designs. While the city of Austin has played a leading role in NACTO, they greatly benefited from the input and presence of other leading North American cities, especially New York and Portland, whose progress can inform and accelerate the city’s continued commitment to cycling.

Presenters included:
Jon Orcutt, Policy Director, New York City Department of Transportation
Kate Fillin-Yeh, Bike Share Program Director, New York City Department of Transportation
Roger Geller, Bicycle Coordinator, City of Portland
Nathan Roseberry, Senior Bikeways Engineer, Chicago Department of Transportation

The Cities for Cycling Road Show in Austin, Texas was sponsored by the Real Estate Council of Austin, Transpo Industries, Inc., Bicycle Sport Shop and private donations.
