Measuring & Building Complete Networks for Walking and Biking

A sidewalk or a bike lane that ends at a highway may be increasing a city’s bike & pedestrian lane mileage, but it’s doing little to connect people to destinations. Fully connected and comfortably designed pedestrian and bike networks are indispensible for attracting people to travel on foot, or on two wheels.

In this session, learn about a new tool to gauge your city’s bike network connectivity in the way your street users experience it, hear about how one city is combining qualitative data with an extensive array of quantitative feedback to identify and address gaps in its bike network, and see how another city is moving to tackle its disconnected pedestrian networks. It all starts from taking a deep dive, and accurately mapping and measuring your city’s streets.
