New Paper from Pucher et al

A new paper from University of Rutgers Professor John Pucher, written in conjunction with Jennifer Dill of Portland State University, and Susan Handy of the University of California, Davis, looks at bicycle-related infrastructure, programs, and policies and how they affect bicycle use. The paper, titled Infrastructure, Programs, and Policies to Increase Bicycling: An International Review is currently available online as a PDF and is scheduled to be published in Preventive Medicine, Vol. 48, No. 2, February 2010.

This paper is absolutely loaded with valuable information and references. It’s a must-read for anyone interested in increasing bicycle use.

    Cycletracks, bike boulevards, bike boxes, bike phase traffic signals, colored lanes, traffic calming, car-free zones… I envy cities that have the will to make these things happen and really, really wish mine was one of them.

    Thanks for sharing this important study. For a wide variety of reasons, the U.S. needs to move toward more bike and pedestrian friendly cities.
