Using Connectivity Measures to Evaluate and Build Connected Bicycle Networks

Source: Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) and PeopleForBikes

Some research demonstrates that complete, connected bicycle networks increase ridership for bicyclists of all ages and abilities and improve safety for all modes of transportation. To build effective, seamless networks, practitioners need to be able to quantify network quality to set benchmarks and goals, prioritize projects, and measure progress. This Info Brief provides an overview of current approaches for measuring bicycle network quality and focuses on a case study using the open-source PeopleForBikes Bicycle Network Analysis tool to evaluate the impact of planned projects.
