B$Z: PeopleForBikes Invites U.S. Cities to Respond to New Survey on Protected Bike Lanes

The Green Lane Project, a program of PeopleForBikes, has launched a survey to better understand the progress and challenges faced by any U.S. city building innovative new bike projects.

The survey, Survey of Cities on Protected Bike Lane Designs, has an emphasis on protected bike lanes. Protected bike lanes are on-street lanes separated from car traffic or pedestrian traffic by curbs, planters, parked cars or posts. Since its launch in 2012, the Green Lane Project has helped dozens of U.S. cities build better bike lanes to create low-stress streets.

The new survey is aimed at city staff – project designers, engineers, bike/pedestrian coordinators and other staff – as well as consultants working with a city. Other agency staff and consultants with a direct interest in this field are also welcome to respond. 

“Responses to the survey will deepen our understanding of cities’ experience with planning, funding and building protected bike lanes,” said Martha Roskowski, VP of Local Innovation at PeopleForBikes. “We will get a better understanding of the level of satisfaction with current design guidance, implementation challenges, training needs and more. We thank you in advance for your participation.”

The survey can be found here. Deadline for responses is August 14, 2015. Survey results will be shared in the fall of 2015
