Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Project $25 million over 5 years, completing the final year 10 design solutions: • Road Diets – 4 lane to 3 lane, 2 to 1 lane • Off Street shared use pathways – 84 miles • Buffered Bike Lanes with 2 to 3 foot buffers, parked car buffer • Green prioritized bike lanes • “Advisory” bike lanes
10 design solutions: • Bicycle Boulevards – 1 in place, others in development • Bike/pedestrian crossings • Extensive Bike Parking – Leads the U.S. • Bike/Walk Center – Midtown Greenway Freewheel Bike Shop (no car access) • Bike Share Program – Nice Ride
“$10 fine for riding or driving faster than a walk” ($230 in today’s dollars)
Buffered bike lane at intersection approach, shared bike lane/right turn lane
Advisory bike lanes – 11-foot lane with “bike lane” included as part of travel lane, center lane striping obliterated
Green lanes at right turn/drop lanes Green prioritized lanes with Shared Lane Markings
Riverlake Greenway Boulevard - $2.1 million in NMTPP, TE and local funds, 4.3 miles Largest Blvd markings in U.S.
Medians, but with stop signs at base of hill (MUTCD: only use Stop if 6,000 vpd)
Midtown Bike Center Freewheel Bikes - only bike and pedestrian access
What they don’t seem to have: • Neighborhood traffic circles • HAWKs (1 Toucan along the Boulevard) • Much traffic enforcement: Cyclists seem to run stop signs and signals much more than even here, but probably have lower crash rates • Warm winters!
Nice Ride Basics • Funded by Blue Cross/Blue Shield, many other donors, CPPW grant • $40 to $60 annual fee plus trip fees • Over 100,000 riders in 2011 (as of August) • 23 percent of riders don’t own bikes, 20 percent of trips replaced car travel • Over 100 stations in place, ¼ to ½ mile spacing
Nice Ride Basics • LAB training & tips on safe urban cycling • Total system cost over $5 million (to start): Bikes $1,000 apiece, stations $60,000 each • Self sustaining through subscriptions & fees • Bike seat design encourages short trips!
Bike Share use popular among women, other factors that would support women cycling (National survey of 13,000 women, www.apbp.org/resource/resmgr/downloads/womens_cycling_survey_091420.pdf)
Factors for Success: Density, Bike Facilities, High Bike Ridership, & Benefactor $$
