The Bottom Line: How bicycle and pedestrian projects offer economic benefits to communities

May 7, 2013, 2 p.m.

 

Building pedestrian and bicycle facilities don’t just add new transportation or recreation options to a community, they bring economic value. This webinar focuses on the economic impact of new or expanded bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

Presenters Darren Flusche with the League of American Bicyclists, Ginny Sullivan with the Adventure Cycling Association, Mark Wyatt with the Iowa Bicycle Coalition, and Miller Tuttle with Transportation Alternatives discuss the latest research highlighting the dollar value bicycle and pedestrian projects bring to a community as well as offer compelling examples of pedestrian and bicycle projects from entire states, to big cities to rural areas.

This is the second of two webinars being offered jointly by the PBIC and the Bike League. The first presentation, held April 9, focused on funding bicycle and pedestrian projects under MAP-21.

Presenters:

  • Darren Flusche, policy director, League of American Bicyclists
  • Ginny Sullivan, director of travel initiative, Adventure Cycling Association
  • Mark Wyatt, executive director, Iowa Bicycle Coalition
