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

In this session, learn about how bicycle networks are quickly being implemented in cities around the world, how a new online tool can gauge your city’s bike network connectivity in the way your street users experience it, hear about how cities are combining qualitative data with an extensive array of quantitative feedback to identify and address gaps in bike network, and see how cities are using strategic Quick-Build infrastructure projects to accelerate the growth of bike networks while simultaneously building community partnerships.
