Cyclists & Pedestrians
Cyclists & pedestrians are 2 key user groups in the transportaiton system with specific needs and concerns. This collection of solutions and blocks provides a quick summary of resources on this topic.
A bicycle sharing program will allow for missing gaps in the transportation network to be filled. This program allows city goers to rent public bicycles from a fleet on a as needed basis. Features such as a dense bike network, self-moderating rental stations, and a "smart" checkout system will be included into this program.
The city will hire a Transportation Coordinator to redesign our regional transit system to connect people, employment, and services. We'll encourage use of mass transit use by providing public employees with a pre-tax transit pass. At the same time, we'll work with the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) to develop a vision for a multimodal regional transit network that integrates bicycle and pedestrian networks.
This solution addresses public spaces not suitable for pedestrians and cyclists in New York City metro area, USA for local communities
At the start of the Street Design Project, the City of Chenai took bold measures to reevaluate who uses the streets and how these usage figures should manifest themselves in street design features. This reevaluation suggested a dramatic change was needed. Instead of placing cars at the top of the pecking order, walking and non motorized vehicles were placed first. The redesign of the streets carries out this shift in the form of new safety measures, travel zones, and street distribution.

"Copenhagen is making its transportation system more intelligent and modernizing its traffic signals to be controlled in real time in order to further promote cycling and public transport. Copenhagen is investing in Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) by installing new controllers in traffic signals at the city’s 380 intersections. The new technology not only enables the city to control traffic and optimize signals in real time, resulting in more efficient flow of bikes and buses, but also decreases the energy use of traffic signals by one-third. Overall, the travel time of cyclists will be reduced by 10% and travel time for buses is expected to decrease by up to 20%. The city hopes the improvements will entice even more people to partake in cycling in particular, which already accounts for 45% of commutes. Copenhagen is also using the smart traffic signals to reduce the number of stops for cyclists by 10%, which will reduce the incidence of accidents. ITS will help Copenhagen achieve its vision to have 75% of all trips in the city be by bike, by public transport, or on foot by 2025."
