Planning for Networks, Not Just Projects

A bike lane that ends abruptly in a place that no one views as a destination may add to a city’s mileage total, but it won’t change anyone’s behavior. Similarly, a painted bike lane along a 45mph roadway is highly unlikely to be attractive or safe for children to use when riding to school. Fully connected and comfortably designed multimodal networks are indispensable. Learn how to measure the value benefits of new bike infrastructure and how to know when you have to build what.
