Bicycling and Walking in the United States: 2016 Benchmarking Report

Source: Alliance for Bicycling and Walking, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The Alliance for Biking & Walking has been tracking data across the U.S. through the Benchmarking Project since 2003.

Every two years, the project team releases an updated report with the most recent data available, providing a comprehensive snapshot of biking and walking in the U.S.

Since its beginning, the Benchmarking Project has been guided by three primary objectives:

  1. Promote data collection and availability;
  2. Measure progress and evaluate results; and
  3. Support efforts to increase bicycling and walking.

Two additional objectives motivate this work: make the connection between active transportation and healthy communities; and strengthen the network of Alliance advocacy organizations who rely on the Benchmarking Report as a resource for the work they do.
